I've had headaches and seizures since my teens and doctors still figure out why. Now as a mom of 3 it makes it hard to even be mom.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Since the age of twelve I have had the most debilitating headaches that would keep me from being a kid. Things only got worse when I started my period. When i started having cramps i couldnt get up from bed i would lay in the fetal postion for a couple of days with heating pads and pain pills until the pain of the cramps and headaches would pass. I tried birth control because my periods were never normal , the patch, the pill, and the IUD. But by the end of high school the pain was the same and I graduated by going to night school because I missed so many days due to the pain. It wasnt until the day after christmas 2005 that I had my frist seizure. Grand mal, to this day I cant remember a thing about the seizure itself. So they started running all the test and I had to drop of college because of all the doctors appointments. A year later they found an ovarian cyst on my right side and went in to remove it and turned out I had a cyst on both ovaries. I was told it wouldnt be recommended for me to have kids. During all this time I'm still have having headaches so doctors prescribed me migraines meds. And change my seizure med again to keppra. I get pregnant with my first. After I had her I had a couple of seizures and still couldnt explain to me why or what the trigger was. At this point I'm in and out of the hospital with UTI's and seizures that I've had at work. At this point I'm at my wits end and I get pregnant again. Perfectly fine for two years them after my third pregnancy I had a seizure my 8th month and he was 2 weeks early and I had stones and in and out of the hospital with him. Now I have nausea with my headaches, my periods are not normal again I get different types of seizures daily. Panic attacks, I've had a breakdown and already tried to take my life twice. I know I have children and they need me. But they need a healthy mom not a mom in constance pain or on pain pills all the time.
