I take 500mg daily of Tegretol.
History of Epilepsy since I was a young child and have been on Tegretol for most of my life. Every time I was slowly taken off the medication I had a seizure but while on the medication I have never had a seizure.
So it is likely these symptoms are related to a neurological issue but not the issues identified on this MRI since there has been no progression or change of said lesion correct? For informational purposes what exactly is mesial temporal sclerosis? Is it actually a lesion?
Thank you for all the information. I started getting bad anxiety about this being a tumor and decided to give this site a try and you relieved a lot of my anxiety. I will take your advice and go to a university medical center to see if I can find out the cause of these symptoms and get it resolved. There is actually one a few miles from where I live. Again thank you for your help. Much appreciated.
