    Had an appointment with neuro doctor yesterday & I'm beyond thrilled with the results.

    If my EEG (this next Monday) is "normal" neurologist will start weaning me off seizure medications ~ incredible. I've been on these medications since I was 18 y/o. It will be a slow process but I'm looking forward to it as I'm currently taking 13 different medications.

    I discussed with him our need to get a baseline to my memory issues & confusion; he agreed & pointed out the number of medications that can interfere with these issues plus the sleep & agitation issues I've had of late.

    Very cool.

    Very cool indeed! Maybe the encephalopathy had an effect on your seizure disorder? I think the meningitis and seizures acted as shock treatments as far as some of my symptoms.
