It's a mystery for my health team


Dr. Garg :

Hello

Dr. Garg :

I would wait for the 24 hour EEG results

Dr. Garg :

Seizures and strokes can mimic each other to a certain extent

Dr. Garg :

if you're having some or no loss of consciousness, these may be simple partial versus complex partial seizures.

Dr. Garg :

Have you tried any anit-seizure medication for this?

Customer:

A doctor put me on Phenobarbital while in the hospital..My doctor mentioned they wanted me too stop it.
