I am a 48yo former Firefighter in CA with neck & back injuries.

Customer Question

I am a 48yo former Firefighter in CA with neck & back injuries. I have had anxiety attacks (so I thought) my entire life. I get an aura, then scared feeling, then diaphoresis. 2-5 minutes time.
On 7/27/15 I had my 1st 2 and thank god my only 2 Tonic-Clonic seizures to date. After Ct Scan, EEG etc. they think the cause may be my history of 6-9 concussions growing up & at the fire dept. I was told by Kaiser all these episodes were partial seizures so I am now taken Lamictal prescribed from my Kaiser Dr. Josiah Ambrose at Redwood City epilepsy center. Today I have had 5 Partials with 2 causing my left hand to go numb which was what happened at home and at the hospital when I had full ones in July. Since July I have only had about 10 total, and never more than 1 in a day after the meds so today's 5 are concerning. I took 2 Temazepam and 1 .5mg Zanax sublingually in hopes this series would stop
I have been watching specials on TV about CBD and would like to get a Lic for it. I live in the SF Bay area in CA. I appreciate your advise and would also like to a licence. I would gladly forward you my med records if needed. Let me know....Thanks!

Hello from JustAnswer.
Could you clarify what you are seeking?
We cannot provide medical documentation to support getting a license.
We can only provide information in response to questions?
Is there information that would be helpful?

No this is not what I was looking for and I do not have a medical question for you.....I was not clear on what this service provided. I have Kaiser and Neurologists already. Thank you!
