  2. All that I know is that I have granmal seizures & when they did the EEG 11 years ago after my daughter was born he said he didn't know any triggers & wasn't sure why I have seizures due to my brain waves only slightly being off so he diagnosed me with epilepsy & said I would be on medication the rest of my life

    1. wow! thank you so much for sharing with the community. How are you currently doing? Wishing you all the best. Warmly, Kailah (Team member)

  3. Hi. I have post traumatic epilepsy from a TBI. I have complex partial and tonic clonic seizures.

    1. your positive perspective is such a light for the community - thank you so much for sharing. Wishing you all the best, Kailah (Epilepsy Team Member)

    2. your positivity is inspiring. I am glad you have a great support team and care plan to help you through this time. Warmest regards, Gabrielle (Epilepsy Moderator)

  4. My standing diagnosis is the placeholder Epilepsy, Type Unknown. I had 2 Grand Mal seizures, (the 2nd of which happened in the ER while being examined for the first), in November 2021. I continued to have mini convulsive seizures in my sleep, about one or two a month, until mid March. Since then I have not had any more convulsions, but there is evidence i am still having occasional absence seizures (sore jaw/teeth, snoring fits, harsher mornings) but until I have a seizure while hooked up to an EEG it seems like it's a giant question mark as to an official designation.

    1. , wow.. this must be an extremely difficult and frustrating journey - please know, this community is here for you. Have you considered getting a second opinion? This may be something you've already explore, but if not I found these articles that may be helpful:
