My short version of epilepsy story

CuteDolphins5 profile image

I was born with epilepsy and the type I had was facial seizures but we didn't find out I had epilepsy till. I was 5 or 6 becuse I was so young when I had it I don't really remember having any of them I only rember 2 that I was told about then I was clear and discharged from the hospital care when I was 12 as I hadn't had a seizure for years but 4 years later I think I'm having seizures again I think my epilepsy has returned I think I have absence seizures with some hand and a and leg jerks

Hi CuteDolphins5

Welcome to the HealthUnlocked community and thanks for posting. I can understand you're worried that your epilepsy might have returned. If you've not already, it would be a good idea to speak to your GP. If they think you might be having seizures they can refer you back to the hospital to see an epilepsy specialist.

If you have any questions about epilepsy or would like to talk anything through then feel free to contact us on the Epilepsy Action Helpline, freephone 0808 800 5050. You might also be interested in our website for people aged 16-25, The Epilepsy Space.
