Hi all, I don't myself have epilepsy but my 4 year old daughter does. She was diagnosed with benign rholandic epilepsy when she was 3. When she has a seizure it generally starts with a spasm in her lip and vomiting then progresses to her arm and then her whole body. She's on tegratol twice a day, the side effects can be horrendous and the main issue I'm having is the idea it can effect learning. She starts school this year (she currently goes to pre school 3 days a week). I can't sleep properly since her first seizure, ant noise from her room and I'm awake. Does anyone else have children in a similar position?
