Transitioning to adulthood can be confusing for anyone—but especially for people with epilepsy. Here are 7 questions you need to ask your physician.
A clinical trial is a great way to move epilepsy research forward. Should you participate in one?
You’re in the grocery store and suddenly you hear a commotion. Another shopper is on the floor—convulsing. You’re terrified. What should you do? Beyond calling 9-1-1, knowing what to do—and what not to do—when someone is having a seizure could mean the difference between safely allowing the seizure to pass and causing an injury.
You’ve tried just about everything to get the seizures to stop. The good news is that you may have other options; alternatives to major surgery that may help control your intractable epilepsy.
If you or a loved one has been living with uncontrollable seizures, your doctor may mention a treatment option called “laser ablation.”
Patients and parents desperate to manage severe cases of epilepsy like Dravet syndrome, which is treatment-resistant and involves multiple seizures, have looked to medical marijuana for relief. But not everyone is fully on board.
