im 21yo female with history of anxiety/panick attacks, Dr sent me to have EEG because i am always dizzy, the scan showed unstable brain activity – Epileptic, put me on EPILUM 500mg. However I have never lost consciousness or had a seizure, i just have disorientation or dizzyness even on the meds. Went for second EEG, neuro said im perfectly healthy, unstable activity was noticeable however natural for someone my age during hyperventilation (which they make you do during EEG) however the neorologist cannot prove i dont have epilepsy because im on meds, and to stay on them for a year?! Because she wont prove i don't have it, i cannot drive a car because technically they cant do anything????? how can i have epilepsy…. when ive never had an attack? or lapse of consciousness? and if i did have a lapse of consciousness (petit maal) would I know?Also since being on the EPILUM 500mg twice a day, i have become sort of dependant, as it is a mood stabilizer.
