I have been an epileptic since age two. In 1996 my epilepsy took a new path. Instead of having daytime seizures, I began only having seizures in my sleep. So, now I only have to worry about noturnal seizures which I camcord in order to keep a video diary and count of my seizures. Plus, I have athritis in my neck. I also believe the athritis is in my spine due to the fact it has hit my fingers. Hey, if you wake with your spine hurting something must be wrong. I am now having a problem in the lower back, espicially the left area. The problem is at times it hurts to stand and I certainly cannot lean. Plus I canoot leave out muscle spasms in my back. I also want folks to know I look at life this way, I look to my left, I look to my right, there is always someone in worse condition than me. Have sympathy for them not me.
