Default seizure - migraines?

Good day Shyra,

I have had hydrocephalus since the age of four months. Today, I am nineteen years old and have had 15 shunt revisions (twelve in the last ten months). However, I have never had a seizure. I did meet a ten-year-old girl, during my hospital stays, who has between twelve and twenty seizures per day. I do not know which kind of medications she tried, neither the names of the ones*that were and those*that were not successful. Athough, I do know that before having a seizure, she would sometimes have a headache and feel dizzy. Once the seizure had passed, the symptoms progressively diminished,*to finally disappear. Also, many people*who have*hydrocephalus seem to have headaches more frequently than individuals who do not have to deal with this condition.

I know what a headache feels like because I still have some today. What keeps me going is that I am followed by an incredible neurosurgeon who will not give up until I am pain-free!

I am very glad your son is doing well.

Sending Mattson and the rest of your family lots of*health,
