You mentioned that you were on many medications for Epilepsy off and on. It could be a combination of all these things that cause you to get older quicker. I do know one things most of the anti-seizure medications robs out bodies vitamins and minerals that are needed by our bodies on a daily basis. To stay healthy we need so much vitamins and minerals and fluids on a daily intake. When, I took Tegretol, I did not have the appatite to eat what I should. My bones were litterly being robbed of Calcium and Mangnesium without me even realizing it. I took the Tegretol for a little over 10 yrs. After, being weened off of the Tegretol, I got really sick about a year later. My blood was tested and found to be low on almost all of the vitamins and minerals. I was given these through the advice of a doctor not a perscription. I started eating right and cut down on the salt and made sure that I had something sweet ( Oat Meal Cookies) about 2 a day at least. I drank the right amount of pure water that has been pass through a water filter system. Drink natural juices and so forth. No the aging has not stopped but, I got my energy back to a certain degree. I am now excercising in front of my home now, I could not do that a year ago. It cuts down on the number of Panic Attacks and Anxiety that bothers me in addition to the Grand Mal Seizures. I hope this has been helpful.
I have had low blood pressure for quiet a while now. Yes, having Complex Partial Seizures do make you age pre-maturely. I am currently on 54 yrs old but, I look like a person that is 74 yrs old. I have an all white full beard, solid white hair on every inch of my body. I had Complex Partial Seizures since my 21st birthday. By the time, I was 26 yrs old, my hair started turning salt and pepper color. By the time, I was 30 yrs old I was completely gray haird. At age 40, I started wrinkling up around my eyes and my facial skin. Then, by the age of 54 yrs old you are looking like 74. Get the pattern here friend? Seizure have an adverse effect on some people particularly Complex Partials.
