I have been taking Depakine for 3 years and i still don't know if i have epilepsy.
I don't know when these things began...but i was just having involuntary hand gestures...like twitches.But these things happened only when i was waking up too early,i was waking up confused and agitated.It started with both hands...it was not so often...i repeat ! only on the morning was happening!if i grabbed a glass of water and i had these twitches,i just broke that glass.i couldn't control it but i was fully aware and conscious.
One day whan i woke up and i was having these hand twitches,i just fell off my feet.It was the same twitches on the legs.For one fraction of a second,i just couldn't control them.I just fell off,i knew that happened and raised to my feet again.
These things was taking just 5 minutes or less.
On another morning,i had these twitches and this is what i remember,next,i was on the ambulance.My mother told me i just freezed.My muscles fully contracted,she couldn't open my mouth.Was that an epileptic seisure?Because i know that epileptic people pass out and shake when they have seisures.I have to mention that i was low on calcium...i had some tests and i discovered i had extremely low calcium.First,they told me i have tetany and spasmofily.Then on another hospital they told me i have epilepsy and gave me Depakine.I did a lot of EEG tests and then a MRI but they told me i have nothing BUT,still, i'm taking Depakine.
Since that bad seisure i didn't have any but i did have hand twitches(only on the morning BUT just sometimes when i went to the club and drank a little.I went many times on the club,and dinking,and...you know...having a good time and woke up just fine the next morning.These twitches were random.I noticed i had twitches on the morning(not every morning.very rare) when i stopped taking the pills for some days.So,to be safe,when i go to a party where i take a drink,i don't take my pills that night.I usually take them on the morning then on the afternoon.It happened a lot of times but had twitches very rare.)
This morning i started having twitches and..my mother totally freaked out.She usually freakes out when she sees i have hand twitches.I don't like to believe i have epilepsy.
These meds are freaking me out!Because of them i can't concentrate and i'm good for nothing.I can't learn anything at school,i can't handle some situations...just can't concentrate.
I noticed when i drink some coffee i am just LUCID.I can concentrate on many things and i can handle hard situations.These pills affect my concentrating capacity and i don't know what to do.I'm good for nothing without some coffee!
Anyone had this kind of twitches??
