Customer Question
Hello, i am a...

Hello, i am a 25 yo male living with a condition i believe to be epilepsy or seizure related in may of 2016 i had a video eeg done to finally confirm the occurrences of them. it was very expensive and financially disastrous considering the ways my daily life is effected. Extreme fatigue/sleeplessness is a common reoccurring symptom i believe is due to nocturnal occurrences throughout the night. if any rest occurs at all. Due to these problems and issues i miss work unintentionally because sometimes i simply sleep through the 12 alarms i set every work day. Or even worse i have woken to turn off the alarm and kick myself when i wake up late and have no recollection of having being awake. i have lost job opportunity after opportunity because most people simply don't understand what the condition entails or they just don't care. well why haven't you gotten treatment you may think to ask? because medical coverage takes a few months to kick in and i could never afford to pay for any of it out of pocket my ability to have the job to pay for the proper care is nearly impossible. every facet of my life is effected by this and i just feel so helpless to take control of my own financial stability or have a career or education because of all this. How can i have a normal work life while dealing with the treatment and better understanding of my still in progress diagnosis, if my own financial stability is in shambles because of the very issue i cannot control?

Our patients with well controlled seizure disorders through medication often live very successful and productive lives. So it's a matter of finding the right medication regimen to prevent you from having breakthrough seizures.
