EEG and imaging: Epilepsia partialis continua (epc) is frequently seen in patients with an anatomical/pathological abnormality at or near the gray-white junction in the brain.

Treatment of this type of epilepsy is difficult, frequently requiring multiple medications. ...Read more
Epilepsia partialis continua is a condition in which a person has partial seizures (seizures are uncontrolled, repetitive body movements; partial ones do not result in a loss of consciousness and only affect a certain area of the body).

Abort the seizures: Typically these are intermittent partial focal seizures during recovery from status epilepticus, but such activity can occur with brain infections and even diffuse brain problems from toxins, poisons, and medication withdrawal.

Libido Too Low: This common problem is usually related to fatigue, depression, or stress for someone your age. The mental health component of erections and sexual desire is very powerful.

Absolutely: The most common cause is lack of exercise, followed by alcohol overindulgence. Other causes (diabetes, hepatitis c, several inborn errors of metabolism) have specific treatments. I'm glad this was discovered, as it can become serious, but as long as cirrhosis hasn't supervened (which is a miserable way to die), you can probably take charge of your own recovery and enjoy doing it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
