@canary I'm sorry to raise this at a difficult time for you, but have they ruled out other causes more sinister ones?OK, Im just back from the hospital.
Bad news, Im afraid. OH has had more seizures. They were not as bad as the ones that ended him up in A&E, but he has been put back on the lorazepam. He is very confused, but insisting that he was being discharged today and I was taking him home. I suggested that he must be quite tired after the seizures and perhaps he could have a sleep first, then made my escape. It looks like the UTI has still not gone. That is 3 weeks that he has had it and 3 different types of antibiotics, the last one supposedly targeting that particular bug. Its rather worrying.
Its good he's had a CT head and nothing showed, but he may need an MRI if your concerned enough to push that, have you heard of non-epileptic seizures ? These happen for other reasons and are equally as worrying which have different causesWhat sort of things are you thinking of @Palerider ?
He had a scan 3 weeks ago when he first went into hospital because they thought he might have had a stroke. There was no sign of a stroke (and I would have thought that anything like a tumour would have been noted too) and then they found the UTI
I am sorry, I won't comment again @canary.They arnt non-epileptic seizures, @Palerider - they are real ones. He has epilepsy anyway so it makes him more susceptible to triggers like high temperatures and infections. He genuinely had, and probably still has, a UTI
Never feel guilty @Splashing About
Thank you for your your support and hugs are very welcome xx
I'll private msg you @canary, and I am sorry I didn't mean to upset you more than you already areIm sorry @Palerider - I didnt mean to brush you off. I do appreciate you offering advice. I was probably more brusque than I intended as Im a bit upset. Im also a bit bemused as non-epileptic seizures are usually considered to be a symptom of mental health problems.
OH definitely has an abnormal EEG - spike waves in the temporal lobe - following a car accident many years ago.
