Seizures and the Summertime

As the temperature heats up, my seizures seem to get worse. One major cause (we think) is more allergy particles are outside and I am spending more time outside doing things like bike riding. It leaves me with dilema. Do I stay inside and have fewer seizures or do I get outside and enjoy the sunshine? I am still changing meds so I hope they can stop the seizures that way. Thankfully, the seizures are small and manageable.

Doctors are still learning about seizures. Treatments are often trial-and-error. I was on many different meds over the years but I think my current medication will be the right one. Apparently, seizures are often worse when you are a teenager and can go away or fade as you get older. To learn more about seizures check out CURE (Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy) and the Epilepsy Foundation.
