I have an appointment with my neurologist coming up next week. I do not expect much excitement since things have gone reasonably well for me. As of today, I am able to carry out a fair amount of stressful work without having a seizure. I guess you could say that I believe I am doing well for someone with epilepsy.
One topic that I want to bring up is blood blisters. For some reason, I have been periodically finding them in my mouth. I have no memory of how it got there. I have generalized epilepsy. According to wikipedia, generalized seizures “are a type of seizure that impairs consciousness and distorts the electrical activity of the whole or a larger portion of the brain.” I am not always aware of when I have had a seizure. Is it a side effect of my medicine (Depakote ER) or something else?
