Brain Seizures
Jun 25, 2009
Hi,
I am new to this site and I am 32 years old and about 6 weeks ago i was in the ER for severe pain in my left jaw and numbness in my jaw, face and lips. Then I had blurred vision and dizziness. They ran test after test and told me I had trigeminal neuralgia. They then told me to follow up with the doctor on Monday. I went to the doctor and he sent we to a Neurologist. My Neurologist did an MRI and a 30 minute EEG. And the EEG came out fine but the MRI showed a larger spot on the right side of my brain called the temporal tip which is losing brain mass and he said it is causing brain seizures. He put me on Topamax and is now having me do an 8 hour EEG on the 22nd of July. Has anyone ever had a brain seizure before? What causes them? he said it is due to a brain injury or tumor but I have never had either one of those. Do you know of any other causes?

Thanks
angela
