Hello,
I'm new to this site & still trying to figure things out so... I had my first seizure in July of this year & my second about 4 hours later that same day. I don't remember either one. Apparently both were about 3-5 minutes long and full blown gra-mal (ha-ha) still learning. All I remember is sitting at the table on the phone at my mom's. My mom says I dropped the phone and took off running through the house like I had seen a ghost and was acting as if I couldn't breath. She said finally I ran to her powder room & dropped to the floor, hitting my knees on floor & head on toilet. Then as she screamed for my son to call 911 & or for help I began to convulse, stiffen up, eyes rolled up into head, foam out of mouth, etc.. totally unconsciousness. First seizure at my mom's within 4 hours after hospital admission 2 seizuire occured then they gave me 1000 mg of Dilantin - didn't no what world I was in cuz I'm already on so many other meds.
Anyway, I stayed on the dilantin another month but they wanted to treat other things all in one so they tried a few other drugs that didn't work. Current drug is Gabapentin. It doesn't make me sedated which is a big plus but it makes me so mean and agitated,talkative, crazy, ect... does it anybody else? They worked me up to 3600mg - a little over a week ago they lowered the dose to 2100mg.
I'm still get so mad. I feel like no-one understands me because I don't understand myself anymore. :(
