epilepsy and cramp

I have have cramps for over 14 years from my fingers to toes.  I tracked one day and had over 19 occurances.

I was put on lemictal (generic) for bi-polar and within a day or so the cramps just stopped cold turkey.

I am wondering if my cramps could be localized seizures?  I don't know why else the lemictal would have "cured" them?

I am being taken off the lemictal for side effect issues and would really like to figure out what the cramp/lemictal connection is so I can be treated for them if they come back.

Hi there!
These symptoms of cramps in fingers and toes can be suggestive of peripheral neuropathy. Lamotrigine is very effective at reducing pain associated with neuropathy.Lamictal and gabapentin are both approved antiseizure drugs that may be of use in treating neuropathy. It is advisable to seek medical opinion before talking any medication. Do discuss it with your doctor. Take care and regards!
