I have seizures that happen often and make daily life nearly impossible. I started having seizures in November 2013. I have 2-5 Grand Mals a day. I found out about the VNS and wondered if it would be worth asking about. I have nonepileptic seizures, but they have the same triggers as Epilepsy and the movement is the same. The on,y difference is that my seizures last five to ten minutes. I Sam planning to return to college, but I'm not confident that I can deal with classes. I am turning 20 in June so it's pretty important to me that I can reduce my seizures. Will the VNS help with the seizures? They are thaught to be caused by Functional Neurological Disorder, but also had been thaught to be from Guillian-Barre. I've seen nine different doctors and even my primary has no idea what's causing them. Would I have to get a confirmed diagnosis or can I just ask to see if the VNS helps?
