This is Dr. David

I am sorry about your friend.

racing heart in older patients can be from atrial fibrillation which can need heart shock therapy sometimes

abnormal heart rhythms can cause increased risks for small blood clots to travel to the brain which can cause small stroke injuries to the brain and memory loss

an MRI scan of the brain would be helpful to look for signs of stroke injury and blood clots spread to the brain for your friend

let me know if you have questions.

I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2010 with gran mal
I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2010 with gran mal seizures. I just moved back fro Florida about 6 months ago and was raking keppra 500 mg bid. I ran out of African late August and took donate pen for sleep. I usually work different shifts so I have a hard time with sleep. The past three months , my insomnia is out of control and I have had 7 seizures. I sleep maybe 2 hours every 4 to 5 days than end up with a seizure. Than I have so much anxiety, it just increases. After my seizure I usually vomit for 3 to 4 days and I am drained. I have been in we at least 3 times. I went to poll county services to get some inpatient services because I am so depressed I don't know what to do. I had a 4 hour assessment a month ago but was reused treatment because if my epilepsy. I am so desperate I don't know what to do. I saw a neurologist last week in st paul and he put me on lamictal which all I did was throw up, my face became swollen and started getting a slight rash. The doctor said that should happen yet because I wasn't on them long enough. I contacted mn and wi epilepsy society for help but just got a list of another set of neurologists. At this time, I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this. I have to work and have been unable to for almost three months. I am at my wits end and at a loss. Can you help me figure out what to do. Can't take this anymore. … read more
