Epilepsy : Epilepsy is frequently diagnosed during the first 20 or so years of life. I hope that your medications are successfully controlling your seizures. The issue of agoraphobia is something that would be worth discussing with your doctor who will probably suggest psychiatric help to overcome your fears. Good luck to you.
