Pick's disease seizures
Hi,
My mom has had Pick's disease for a long time, possibly 10 years before it was diagnosed a few years ago. In addition to shrinkage of her frontal area, which we've known about since her diagnosis, her doctor now says her temporal area is shrinking faster than expected.

Mom just started having seizures (two in the last two days). My questions: (1) When she has a seizure, should she always be sent to the hospital, or is there something her nursing home staff can do? (2) Are her seizures likely to become more frequent? What can we expect from this point? (3) Is there any medication that might help. Currently she receives Keppra. Many, many thanks for your advice.   buddy51
