My name is Ashlee, I'm 29 years old and have been diagnosed with epilepsy last month. I'm finding it very scary considering that I was a fine and healthy person before this.
My neurologist advised that I need to try and figure out my triggers, due to the fact that every person is different.
I work for Standard Bank and today at a meeting, I started to get all these weird feeling and then next thing I know, my neck is really stiff etc. I have the feeling like I'm losing control of myself, luckily I left the meeting and came to my desk and decided to come home.
But I could feel the effects of wanting to fall down if that makes sense. I started with 25 mg a day of Epitect for 2 weeks and then 50 mg for another 2 weeks, split for the morning 25 mg and afternoon 25 mg.
After still not feeling good, I started this week Monday with 50 mg in the morning and 25 mg in the evening.
I'm really scared and I know that I shouldn't drive, but I don't have a choice.
The feeling which I get is really weird to explain, but its like I'm losing control of myself and this scares me and at the same time I don't want my boss and colleagues to think that I don't want to work and always be at home. I do work from home.
But this is all new to me and I'm really scared guys. Any words of advice would be great. Are there other people who use Epitec and what are the results etc.
The weird thing is that, when I'm at home I don't feel this way.....
