Hi my partner has epilepsy and had his firat seizure a year ago aged 25. He has very violent siezures where his whole body shakes and kicks out as well as foaming from the mouth and veing sick. His seizures last around 8-12 minutes. He had 2 this day. After being put on keppra 750mg twice a day he has had small seizures where ir is slight shaking and lasts seconds. A ywar later i came hone to find he had a bust lip black eye and bumbs on his head as well as sick everywhere. I called 999 and when they arrived he had another 3 seizures but this time they were more like absent seizures but with the shaking. They were worried about brain damage but mri seemed fine. He constantly stares into space is aware of his surrounding and if call him he answers me and snaps out of it but wondered if anyone else has this. He always has these hot sweats where he overheats and is dripping in sweat for no reason at all. He is now on a new medication where we are starting with 25mg and working up.
I am scared of not being there when he has another and the outcome if this hapoened.
In the uk what help is there for people?? Monitors? Care dogs? Anything ?
