Lately I`ve been feeling as though my epilepsy was going to come on but my body was fighting it.
I phoned my epilepsy nurse up and explained it to her. She said can you come and see me tomorrow. I went the other day. She has put me on VIMPAT starting on 50mg daily for a week then up to 100mg for a week then 150mg after that. At the moment I do feel better. Before that I was on mysoline for 58 yrs. My neurologist wanted me to come off it as she thought it was ding me no good so I tried. I finished taking mysoline two months ago. It looks like she was right. When I saw my epilepsy nurse she did a test on me for depression and anxiety. It was very high on both as we are struggling at work and it is taking me all my time to find work to keep my lads going. Because of this they have also put me on citalopram twice daily and clobazam to help me relax at night.Sorry its going on a bit but not been well lately. Three weeks ago my MD sent me to hospital as he thought I was having a heart attack.m Luckily it wasn`t . They said it was inflammation of the esophagus which I am now on OMEPRAZOLE once a day for rest of my life. Thanks for reading this. Be nice to hear any replies.
