Clonazepam and me

Sep 09, 2010 - 4 comments

Jerking like a gherkin, clonazepam really not helping I've increased dose over last 6 months but not really had much effect other than making me feel like a zombie. Keppra made me ill yuk. Where do I go now??? Might stop meds to see if I get worse or stay the same, if I stay the same and don't feel like a zombie everyday I may have to stop meds and put up with jerks and pain.

EEG tomorrow

Off for an EEG, this is second one I've had to have, new neuro said as I wasn't jerking lots when I had last one done a couple of years ago he'd like another, but this time as my jerks can happen when I'm touched he's told me to get my husband to keep squeezing my knee to see if it records anything unusual.
Not looking forward to it as when I jerk due to touch they are full blown jerks and hurt my back, aah feeling sorry for myself... note to self STOP IT! Self pity who needs it ;o).

Keppra

Spoke too soon, still feeling dizzy but jerks are back had really bad night bouncing on the bed and not being able to sleep and my dear husband had to sleep in another room, due to trampoline effect I was causing. LOL.
Increasing the Keppra dose tomorrow as instructed, will keep you posted on how it goes.
The doctor did say alcohol can help subdue jerks, I'm not a drinker but I tempted to down a bottle of vodka just to get some sleep.... only kidding if I did that I be even dizzier and feel sick too think I'll stick to tablets : )
