I have some days clear of fits. Other days I have several slumps, or occasional tonic clonic fits caused by bright light, loud noise or more emotion, both good and bad, roughly 25 times each month. An epilepsy specialist suggested I take more vitamin D after having a blood test.

I may notice a trigger, like twitches in my cheeks, but sometimes I am not aware that the epilepsy fit lasts for less than a few seconds and am able to carry on as though nothing has happened. If I am standing when it happens I fall, causing body bruising. I wear a cycle crash helmet all the time during the day to protect my head. I take Keppra, Fycompa and Clobazam and have a VNS device. Any other ideas?
