Neurofibromatosis: Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder involves the brain, nerves and skin. There are two types, type 1 which is more common and type 2, typically in adults. Type 1 patients have many brown birth marks, can have benign growths in the brain and develop tumors of the nerves of the eye, and other nerves as well. Many patients have no symptoms, but some can have significant problems.

Meds and lifestyle: Epilepsy is the tendency for repeated seizures. Seizures can have a wide variety of causes. After an initial evaluation, you doctor will typically prescribe a medication that is know to work well for your kind of seizure. Lifestyle changes are also helpful, such as limiting alcohol consumption, avoiding sleep deprivation, and avoiding heights until your seizures are under good control.

Further testing: Headaches that are predominantly in the morning need further evaluation such as an imaging study and possibly eye exam to look for signs of increased pressure. If these are normal, other things to consider would include low blood sugar, sinus issues, sleep apnea, or possibly a side effect of any medication you are on. You should see your primary care doctor for further testing.
