Hello, my 17 yr old son suffers from COmplex partial seizures. He get them 2 - 3 x per day and will always get one after eating starchy or heavy foods, esp white flour, bread, pasta, white rice, etc. He loses his language during them, and then passes out afterwards, I AM SO FRUSTRATED, NO ONE IS HELPING ME. The doc wants me to leave his practice bc the seizures are long in duration and he is a fugue (He goes away) I am looking for a new doctor, but every time I go to a new one they say insensitive things to me like "Is he mentally retarded?" or "His learning disabilities will never get better"...I leave their offices crying. I am so depressed and so tired of my son acting "crazy", having no friends and having such a poor quality of life. I wish I could change things, and feel so impotent. NOw they want to lower the trileptal and the dilantin and start him on Lamictal, but I am afraid, and I wish he would get better. If anyone has any helpful feedback and/or knows of any support groups in the Washington DC area, please let me know. Thank you.
