    EMG

    Has anyone had a EMG that runs for 3 days or longer? I see most info is muscular problems, where test is only a few hours. I'm having one due to seizure problems.

    Hi my name is Dillon. So a few years ago I got in a bad car accident. I damaged my left temporal lobe and year later started having grand-mal seizures. They have always been the standard seizure.

    Connection between Sreat and Wernicke's?

    OK, so my mother suffers from Wernicke’s Korsakoff syndrome, which as I know is caused by a thiamine deficiency due to alcoholism. She also suffered from Thyroid issues since she was a teenager. My sister is in the hospital now for almost a year, with the latest diagnosis SREAT with Hashimotos thyroid.

    Hi I am 19 years old and over the past few years I have experienced spells where I would get lightheaded and pass out upon standing up.

    LOSE OF STRENGTH IN LEGS

    I unfortunately had a heavy object hit me in the head. I have always been an active person lifting weights and running. After the incident I have lost lots of strength in my legs and I also have not been able to run anymore because of imbalance and head pain. My gate has gradually gotten worse and I still stay active by doing lots of walking? Any ideas??

    Herbal drops to stop a partial seizure

    I have suffered from seizures for over 15 years. I recall a while back, someone had given me a herbal supplement in the form of droplets to take when I experience a partial seizure to stop or calm it, but I cannot remember what it was called. Does anyone know if anything like that exists?
