Stay with neurology: Please don't change any of the medications your mother is on and use alternative therapies on your own. You can have a second neurologist opinion, it's your right, but don't stop prescribed medicines till you do so. Anticonvulsants are many, Epilepsy is a science by itself, so stay with experts please, wish yourself and your mother wellness ...Read more

Irregular Cycles: Irregular or delayed menses are usually caused by pregnancy or not ovulating. If the home pregtest is negative then likely not pg but blood test better (consider). If you did not ovulate, then it could be by chance or you might be changing from regular to irregular for ovulation and menses. Perhaps a change in weight (up or down), medications, stress, or even diet supplements. See doc for tests. ...Read more

I am on zeptol 200 thrice a day and I haven't had a focal seizure for a month. Can I get back to swimming. At a times I feel sensations in head. No seiz?

Seizure precautions: Should be discussed with your neurologist. I would not engage in "unsupervised" swimming or tub baths. The person who is supervising you should be capable and prepared (strong enough and an expert swimmer) to be able to safely extract you from the pool or tub should you have a breakthrough secondarily generalized seizure. Keep up the good work! ...Read more

Immunosuppressed for 4 years, just contracted salmonella and have a partial knee replacement surgery in a month. Can I still have it with proper treatme?

Immunosuppressed for 4 years, just contracted salmonella and have a partial knee replacement surgery in a month. Can I still have it with proper treatme?

Yes if properly: Treated. The infection can be nasty in someone who has been immunosuppressed, though without clear idea of why you are suppressed. Usually you would need stronger and longer antibiotic treatment and close monitor of symptoms to ensure the infection has cleared completely prior to having surgery. Good luck and keep a strong relationship with your doctors. ...Read more
