    Epilepsy

    I am a 27 year old female and I've had epilepsy since I was 10-11 years old. I usually had it 2-3 times a year in a night when I was a child. Most seizures were 2-3 mins in duration. I took Depakin for a few year. After remission, I stopped taking it. I now suffer from epilepsy every few years. Specifically, age 17,20,23, and now this year at 27.

    Could I have a neurological disorder or something?

    Over the past couple of years, I seem to be developing some neurological issues and they seem to be getting worst. I’m only 18 years old, but I’m constantly tired and dealing with migraines. I’ve been developing slight muscle spasm and jerks which have been really annoying. I can’t control them and I’ve been getting them a lot. I keep messing up and slurring my speech. I do smoke weed on occasion which probably makes it worse, but I really enjoy smoking. I feel like I am constantly in a dazed and....

    Side effects?

    Hi I'm 13 and I get headaches a lot and my pediatrician is trying to get me to see a neurologist. And she ordered a mri so the don't have to do one when I go there. She ordered one with contrast and without. What I'm wondering is what is the fluid they put in the IV?! Can it have side effects or what? I'm just really confused about what the fluid is for a mri with contrast???

    Hi, My nephew is 2 yrs 6 months. And he had a very tough birth experience. Doctors gave too much oxygen when he was born. and after few months he started to suddenly have seizures .

    Is it seizures?

    For 5-6 years I've had weird spasms where my head would jerk and I would get a headache after. I still don't know what it is but I hope it's not a problem. I need to know if I should do something about it.
