Hi Fran, What test did you have to confirm epilepsy,ie: eeg? What you are discribing about your episodes could be a dysautonomic condition. Have you ever had a Tilt table test? In my case, the brain stem sends the an intertuped message to my heart and this is part of the problem for me. My BP drops first and then the conduction to my heart is interrupted. After the episode everything goes back to normal. The fatigue after can last for days. You also might want to find a Electrophysioligist(SP?) doctor, better known as an EP Doctor.

The Event Monitor I wore was very easy to hide. No one even knew I had it on.

Beleive me, I know what its like to look for answers.

When you answer this post, it might be easier to start a new post that will show up at the bottom of this forum. Not only will I be able to find it better, but others might also see it and be able to help.

Hope that made sense.
