I was diagnosed with epilepsy 3 years ago even though my EEG came back normal. I was perscribed a number of different anti seizure meds none of which seemed to work until i was put on Keppra. I feel the keppra works well and i only have seizures when they are triggered by colds or lack of sleep. I recently went into status and was taken to resus where they injected me with diazepam and lorazepam which stopped the seizures. I was admitted to a ward and had a further 3 seizures which again they gave me Diazepam for. I later discharged myself and the doctor said i would need to go for a repeat EEG and a follow up with my neurologist. The whole time i was in hospital i felt paranoid like the doctors didn't believe my seizures were real but surely if they thought i was "faking" them they wouldn't have given me drugs?. Im just worried that if this second EEG comes back normal my medication will be taken away and they will be treated as something else but i really feel that they are well controlled on Keppra the doctors just dont understand that i only have seizures when they are triggered by a cold or lack of sleep. Does anyone know what happens if a second EEG comes back normal or why they have requested a second one after 3 years?
