Hey all so i was diagnosed with epilepsy at 8yrs old i am now 21 and last year i had some health issues which led me to change my medication from Epilim to Lamictal its been about 3 months now since i have fully swapped over to the new drug Lamictal or Lamotragine (same thing) and the other night when i was driving home i felt really sleepy and i wanted to close my eyes i thought maybe it was just the heater i had on so i turned it to cold to keep myself awake but when i got home i was sitting on my couch drinking some water and all of a sudden i got this massive head spin like really big and strong and i thought for sure i was going to have a fit but i kind of pulled my self back together and got up straight away and took my tablet. Since 8yrs old i have never known when my seizures were going to happen but now being on this new drug is it possible that maybe now i can tell when there going to happen ? i went straight to my GP the next day and he checked my blood pressure and checked my pulse and my eye reactions and he said they were ok so he sent me for some blood tests and i go back on Monday for the results but could this have been a seizure or do you think i was about to ? obviously like i said i have never known when they were going to happen although if i could i would imagine that would be what it felt like. Does anyone on here know when there going to have a seizure ? and what does it feel like ? any ideas or input would be much appreciated ! i really hope that this new drug works for me i would hate to have a fit now its been 6yrs!
