My wife was diagnosed with Epilepsy almost 8 years ago. She has only ever had one big seizure preceded by many absences over the previous 2 years. She takes 1500mg of Limotrigine per day. Since the diagnosis she has suffered what she can only describe as a "bouncy brain" she says it feels like a heart trace looks.
During these episodes she is alert but we have noticed that her forehead heats up. The "bouncier" her brain the hotter her forehead gets. She also suffers some loss of balance while this is happening. We have spoken to her neurologist about this he just says you are epileptic get used to it.
Would anybody have any ideas as to what the actual cause is or is it just a symptom of her epilepsy and something that she will have to get used to.
Thanks in advance
