Counting My Absence Seizures

I have tried to think of a way to accurately count my absence seizures.  I have generalized epilepsy, which “impairs consciousness and distorts the electrical activity of the whole or a larger portion of the brain.” (  Since I am not conscious for these type of seizures, how can I count them accurately so my neurologist can get an idea of how I’m doing?  I don’t have a roommate that I can rely on, and would prefer to be as independent as possible.

Does anyone have a method that has worked for them?

  1. I was thinking about recording yourself too. How often do you think you have seizures? You can find memory cards that are capable of recording continuously up to 6 hours.


What do you think?
