Hello!
I am a 37 year old working professional with a VNS implant. I have been discussing with my neurologist about increasing the power of my VNS (apparently it is currently below therapeutic range).

As discoveries like this one are made, we get closer to truly understanding the condition and...

Thanksgiving marked my 13th year of being seizure free! I was diagnosed with JME (juvenile myoclynic epilepsy) at age 16. I am however on Topamax 2x daily. But it's worth it. So every thanksgiving I am truly grateful!
I am happy to answer any questions about Epilepsy, as I believe strongly that Epilepsy needs to be spoken about more.

Hi Epilepsy Team. My daughter in 24 years old and has generalized tonic clonic seizure with no aura or warning.

I am looking into smart watches as an option to monitor/detect seizures - Has anyone heard of this? If so, do any of you have recommendations/advice on the pro and cons of seizure watches?

Has anyone that has had any experience with this offer any...
