Epilepsy then develop brain tumor, what are the problems?

Not that sequence. Brain tumors often can cause epilepsy, and that may even be the initial sign, but epilepsy has multiple causes, with tumors being relatively infrequent. Epilepsy does not promote growth of brain tumors.

Brain tumor. All brain rumors can cause seizures. . Read more...
Not typically. The pineal gland is located in the center of the brain near eye nerve pathways and the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) system. Symptoms include double vision, headache, nausea, & vomiting. I suspect seizures could happen but are not common. Pineal tumors are also rare .. only 1% of all primary brain tumors. Other causes of seizures should be investigated. Read more...

I've gotten epilepsy all ur life, then developed a stage 3 astrocytoma brain tumor recently, how will the epilepsy affect the brain tumor and visa vera?

Complex. The epilepsy won't affect the tumor, indeed it may be a result of the tumor. Removing the tumor surgically and following with radiation and/or chemotherapy will help with seizure control. Some anti-seizure medications interfere with some chemotherapy, so your doctors will have to adjust what they give you to avoid problems with that. Read more...

I have a brain tumor with epilepsy and it was cause by a car accident 2 year ago. I been having alot of headaches with dizziness and weakness.

Brain tumor epilepsy. When is your next appointment with your neurologist? Sounds like you need to be seen very soon. If your weakness involves less muscle strength instead of just fatigue, it is more urgent. If your dizziness is vertigo, the world spinning around you, it would be best to be seen ASAP to have neural imaging in the ER. Have someone drive you or call 911. Do not drive, please. Read more...

Other possibilities. Depending on the type of seizure (epilepsy) - grand mal, petite mal, partial, etc., trileptal may be appropriate but at too low a dose, or you may need to take an additional anti-seizure medication. Talk with your neurologist or seek out the opinion of another neurologist. Read more...
"Ride the horse" I often say when choosing a seizure med, we need to "ride this horse until we find out if it'll get us where we want to go. We don't change horses unless we have to." meaning...We need to push the dose up gently until either seizures stop (yeaaaa!) or we get unacceptable side effects (oh nuts!) and have to find a different med. Talk with your neurologist. If tolerable, you might need more. Read more...
