I was diagnosed with juvinile myoclonic epilepsy 3years ago after a full tonic-clonic seizure.
After trying 2 types of meds, my symptoms calmed and I have only had 4 tonic-clonic seizures within the past 2 years. I take 175mg twice a day of Lamotrogine.
Recently I have been having bad headaches. My GP told me it's just Tension headaches after shinning a light in my eyes. They seemed to go away after a few weeks of having them on and off.
About 2 weeks ago I believe I had a focal seizure as I had stabbing pains in the top of my head, I felt panicky and as if I couldn't swallow so was repetitively trying to swallow. After about a Minuit it calmed down though I couldn't get my words out straight away. Felt rather 'shivery' and fell asleep and slept through numerous alarms for almost 3 hrs.
Over the past week the headaches are back with avengance. I feel like I'm being stabbed at the top of my head and as if it 'hurts' my eye sockets. It starts mid day and gets progressively worse by the evening/night.
Does anyone else have these symptoms or know what and how to help these terrible stabbing headaches??
