Hello, I am new here. I am a 33 year old female with epilepsy. I have had epilepsy since I was 14 yrs. old. I have had an MRI done on my brain about 6 years ago, due to me forgetting thing's, and what was found was Atrophy of the brain, lesions, enlarged Ventricles, and I was told my brain looks like a brain of a Schitzophrenic. My Neurologist said there was nothing to worry about. I went to my Neurologist again about 4 months ago because I was having bad headaches upon waking up and they would last through out the day. No over the counter medicine would help ease the pain. I asked my Neurologist what I should do he told me to take an additional pill of my epilepsy medicine, which is Depakote and I take 5 pills already, and that should work. It has not worked and now I have been experiencing sharp pains on the right side of my head and sometimes in the back. These stabbing pains have been going on for about a month. Do you have an opinion as to what this might be? Should I see a different Doctor? Thanks.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
