Meds or menopause?: Repeat auras may be a sign that your epilepsy is not as well controlled as before. It's could be due to a change in medications, a change in levels of medications due to introduction of other meds or supplements, or due to progression of whatever underlying thing is causing the epilepsy. Also, seizure patterns can change before or during menopause.
