I am a 27 year old male who is experiencing symptoms of lightheadedness, dizzyness, fatigue, headaches and general malais. I had a tonic clonic grand mal seizure 2 years ago that went unexplained. I have had these symptoms ever since and they get worse as time goes on. I had an MRI after the seizure which was normal, bloods normal, EEG normal. I have been to see a neorologist who could not explain why I was feeling like this and diagnosed my with epilepsy as he thought my dizziness was actually partial seizures. I really don't think these are seizures as I have them all day everyday and I have not had another big seizure.
Sometimes when I focus on something with my eyes, my vision is a bit shaky and standing up and walking is the worst for my lightheadedness. I feel like I will fall over and my legs feel weak. I never do fall over but need to lean against walls alot! My symptoms are worst at night but will start early on. I find it hard to sleep without pills and seem to get a flashing lights sensation when I close my eyes to sleep, sometimes accompanied by headaches which last all night. I get pressure between my eyes which seem like its my sinus but this is only my disgnosis!
What can I do because the doctors aren't coming up with any solutions and I hate living like this!
I too have the same problems.I had a grand mal in october.I'm on keppra 1000mg a day but I still have those feelings like you.They found a cavernous angioma in my right temporal lobe.Did they say anything about that?I also had a emg for the legs it showed nerve damage from L-4 L-5 disc.Hows your back?Any herniated discs?The seizure meds have a lot of side effects.I went to boston.Check out this neurosurgen:Arthur Day at bringham young womens hospital.He's the best in the country i'm told.In my visit he was awesome.Good luck.Jim
