I've had a rather shaky day. Couple of days. Lots going on medically with me right now. The most notable being that I may be having a form of seizure. I'm not going to say for sure it is yet, because I haven't seen the neurologist and had it confirmed yet, though my doctor's office is trying to get me in with one asap. I had 6 'episodes' on Thursday, one I was actually talking with my therapist when it happened.
I came home and described what was going on to DH and he said it sounded a lot like absence seizures. I messaged my therapist and she agreed that was what it looked like. She's writing a description of what happened for me to take to the neurologist.
Saw my doctor this morning and she agreed that is what it sounds like. But, I'm on two meds that have anti-seizure components and one is specifically used to treat absence seizures. So I was thinking maybe it is causing them? The doc says no, if anything the meds are making the seizures more mild. That is a scary thought.
I've also had a migraine all week that comes and then quiets down for a while, then roars back to life. This in combination with the possible seizures is worrisome.
I'm not supposed to be driving until I get cleared by the neurologist. This is going to be almost impossible! I have several appointments next week, including whenever they manage to get me in with the neurologist - which DH agreed to drive me to. I really just don't know what to do. I guess I'll have to reschedule.
This feels impossible to me. But, God's got this, I'll depend on Him and praise Him through this storm!
Hope your day went better than mine!!
