My husband is in his late 50's and in january had a severe stroke. He is so lucky to have recovered with no motion or balance problems but he has right frontal lobe damage which causes problems with cognitive function. Out of the blue, 2 weeks ago, he had tonic-clonic seizure and they now tell me that approx 15% of people that suffer strokes in this area end up having seizures. I am really annoyed that we were not imformed of this earlier. So now he is on 1000mg epilim daily and we are waiting on the first blood tests. He hasn't had another tonic-clonic but has been having clonic activity in his legs at night which he sleeps through but I don't.

Is there anyone out there that has a similar problem that I could talk to about this. I have now found I can learn a lot more by looking at the net than the Doctors seem to tell you.

Whoever said that ignorance is bliss has never been in a situation like this.
