My 11 year old has special needs and over the last 2 years, his seizures have increased from one a year to 1-2 every week. Last year the Neuro Doctor put him on meds, which I didn't want and then upped them a few weeks ago because the seizures never stopped. He is STILL having them. Every time we take him to the doctor, the Neuro only says that he is having headaches not seizures and we can try the meds for a while longer!! Can you imagine what it feels like to pour your heart out to a so called degreed doctor and the only Pedi neuro in the county for his insurance, and have him turn his back on your cries and ignore your pleas? Why is he on the meds if you don't believe me? I am afraid for my son because he has gashed his forehead already from seizures and has fallen and busted his lip numerous times. What has to happen next in order to get someone to help me. I'm afraid that my son could be truly harmed or be killed from a fall due to a seizure. Has anyone else dealt with this or had meds increased or had seizures ignored. HELP!!
