Recently diagnosed after partial spread to tonic clonic. E.R. visit Cat scan, Mri, neurologist post op. From what I understood Frontal lobe. That I had migraine?(I don't remember any bad headache), went to TIA, partial to tonic clonic. Past history 2 TIA's almost 10 years ago, (from factor V Lieden blood clotting). I'm now on Topamax 1 twice a day( I was supposed to increase 1 pill a week but I'm not) I can't stand these headaches, face muscle tightness is annoying and worse is the hands and feet pins and needles sensations this is week 4. I feel "slow and dumb" not sure if it all from the topamax or also from the 6 knots I got on the back of my head from the seizure. Since then I haven't felt right. I had video eeg 1 week ago, next visit in 3 weeks. I'm 36 and a single mom not driving now and don't want to believe the diagnosis. Also thinking about stopping the Topamax, it makes me feel like I'm on the verge of a TIA. I never knew I had migraines, just headaches some worse than others. I would appreciate any input. Thanks
