Okay, so this will probably be my final update regarding my seizures. I'll likely stop bitching about them after this.
At my neurology appointment today, I was diagnosed with general epilepsy. After TWO seizures--in the span of what, three weeks?--I can't really say I'm surprised, but it's official now. I have epilepsy. I'm epileptic. Yup. It's not ALL that bad though, I mean, it could be worse. I reckon it's better than being stuck in a third world country like Rwanda with pretty much no means of help whatsoever. I'm on medication now, so as long as I keep popping my presc. pills, I'll be okay. So that's cool. It'll likely be permanent, so I'll be chained to those pills for the rest of my life (#firstworldproblems), but I'm not too mad about it.
Also at the appointment, it was discovered by the xrays I took several days prior to it that I have a few minor "wedges" in the thoracic section of my spinal cord, which explains the occasional pain and discomfort I have originating from that area. It doesn't look anything that bad, I almost definitely won't have to need any surgery for it, and it's unrelated to my seizure--purely coincidental (if a sucky coincidence). I'm due to have an MRI on my thoracic spine soon to follow up on it, juuuuuust to make absolute sure it's not anything that serious. I'm pretty sure it won't be, it doesn't hurt THAT bad.
Not a great way to end the year, but I do appreciate the nurse's sarcastic sense of humor...
"Happy New Years"...haha...
