I have epilepsy, and I had a grand mal seizure on 02/19. I had not have one seizure in 5 years. However, this time I have two of them, and at the end I was dizzy. I was never dizzy before just extremely tired. I had an MRI and this is what the test says: "There are multiple scattered high T2 and FLAIR signal foci in the periventricular white matter bilaterally. This could be related to changes of chronic small vessel ischemic disease, although this would be advanced for the patient's age. Other etiologies could include demyelinating disease such as multiple sclerosis, vasculities, or infection such as Lyme's"
The doctor in the hospital told me that the MRI was normal, but I am reading the results and it does not sound normal to me. I had epilepsy since I am 16 years old. I am 43 years old now. Female, no kids, no surgeries, no smoke or drink alcohol. Overweight, no high cholesterol, slow to normal blood pressure. I tend to have headaches often, but not the migraine type. I was diagnosed with RA. I used to take tegretol, but I used to blame that medicine for my memory problems. The doctor change my medication three months ago to Lamotrigine 300 mg twice a month. After the recent seizure they added Keppra. I will really appreciate if you can let me know what the findings in the MRI means.
