  • I'm sorry to hear of all your health issues. You have many conditions & I think you should contact your pulmonary doctor & allow him to advise you as you go forward. I'll pray that you're given something to help you. Take care & God bless you.

  • Thank you Joyful4u ,have talked to family doc as well as pulmonologist ,get same answer, dont get another seizure.I think a lot of doctors seem a little shaky when epilepsy,especially grand mals .Guess not common having both,copd grandmals.hopefully find info on these sites.

  • nepats32954, I will say a prayer as well. My big issue & as far as I know my only issue is being on ox 24/7. I went from ok to ox 24/7 really quickly too. Some days are good & I can move around a little bit some days I just can't w/o getting totally winded, so I know what your going thru as far as that good luck & I hope your seizures get better for you
