Going In The Hospital For A Few Days

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Well, I'm going in the hospital tomorrow. It's related to my epilepsy (I know others on our forum here have had seizures/epilepsy too). The doctor is going to try and reduce the number of meds. I take, but I need to be in the hospital because she is going to do it rapidly.

I'm actually kind of excited. It's the first "new treatment" I've done in years for my seizures. I hear the med. that she's putting me on has horrible side-effects (It's called Topamax), but everyone is different...so it could work for me. :huh:

I'm just ready to quit having the seizures, migraines, fatigue, vertigo, sleepiness, muscle weakness, etc. that I have on my current medications.

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. :wub:

hugs. -Julie

Wow. Prayers for you! It sounds like what you've doing hasn't been working too well so hopefully this will be the right change.

Wow Julie--this does sound scary but exciting at the same time. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for sure--I hope this new treatment is successful and that you don't suffer too many side effects.

Take care--we'll see you when you're up to it :D

I hope everything goes well and that they are able to feed you safely. I have a history of seizures that I was lucky and turned out to be gluten related. Please be really careful with what they feed you. It would be a shame to have everything your going to be doing negated by them glutening you.

Hope all goes well for you. I take Topamax for a different reason 800mg a day and the only side effect I have is weight loss and for me the was a good thing.
