Hi Jenny, my wife used to tell me for a while I would have twitches, a little shaking in a hand, a movement on a leg, twitching on the face but I was in such a deep deep sleep that she couldnt wake me, I would wake up with a bad headache like I had after a seizure, so it had something to do with it. But like most of things I've had, they would come and stay a while and then something new would come. We are an 'interesting breed'

Thanks Vickie and Carlton! I helped with two other projects with this college and one student got a B and the other student got an A plus. So with this paper and interview, I can only hope and pray that we can do as well! I never liked being interviewed about what I go through, but if it can help educate others on what we go through, then it is worth it

Jenny,

Congrats. I did a similar thing when working at a college and an undergraduate student in psychology came out and interviewed me. She received an A plus on the report and ended up making the AP in the paper, I then received letters from people who had epilepsy or their children did. Congrats and wish you luck on the interview!

Sooo.. praying friends=strangers on this page.. =) I have been asked to be interviewed by a college student that has do to a 5 page report and interview on a medical issue. I got picked to tell about life with Chronic Migraines and also living life JME (Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy); and how it is trying to live without much help through treatments of medication's (being that I am allergic or having most side effects).. So silly as it may sound, pray for me please that I can tell our story of Epilepsy and help spread awareness!

Hey Stephen.. Thanks for your comment. I just wanted others thoughts. I have some Epileptic friends swear it was epilepsy and some swear it was sleep related and some doctors say both! haha So I was just was wondering what others thoughts and experiences were on this. I had one Neurologist say it was a seizure but the Doc I have now say it is sleep related. So.. who knows.. =)

I dont remember if I asked this before or not so here I go.. I dont know if anyone here experiences this or if there is a name for it. My Neurologist rolls his eyes if I talk about it.. Okay, with me at least.. When laying down to go to sleep or just waking up; does any one feel like they are free falling then your whole body jerks or just on side? I have heard of one other guy experiencing this that has epilepsy. Is this a form of a seizure? Doctors just look at me funny and say it's nothing but it has happened a few times. Can any one help?

I, also, will be praying for you!
