My husband has epilepsy and luckily he only has about one seizure a year and it is usualy related to stress, forgetting meds, or being realy sick. Since he started having grand mal seizures he has only had them at night when he was sleeping until earlier this year when he had one during the day. He was up all night the night before throwing up and he only takes his meds once a day at night before he goes to bed. We figured he threw them up and he was so sick which is why I took him to the Dr. But he almost passed out when we were there so they gave him an iv and added anti-nausia drugs to it. When we got home we took a nap and he woke up enough to go downstairs and next thing I know he was having his first daytime seizure. Naturaly I freaked out in my head. So we ended up deciding it was a fluke. Either the anti nausia meds, him throwing up his dylantin and being dehydrated or his body was still asleep enough to do it or all three combined, so we figure it wont happen again as long as he is careful. But now its been 2 months and he keeps getting light headed during the day. But no more seizures. Which is good, but I am worried that maybe the lightheadedness means that his seizures are changing and maybe he is gonna start having them during the waking hours now and more frequent. Am I just being paranoid? I realy hope so. Can anyone relate? I am going to make a Dr.s Appt and make him get his dylantin lvl's checked. Thanks for reading :)

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. 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...
