Hi Ashukaka907, Stress is one of the major factors for bringing on seizures. Try and calm down just a little. This may help. I have had epilepsy for 40 years now and have been on medication since the age of 16. I still take my medication daily and never miss a dose. Your Neuro-Surgeon is the best person to advise you further. Should you wish to communicate personally, please feel free to do so (lesmal@vodamail.co.za). Thank you.
