Upload reports and take treatment as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
Partial seizures at this age needs to be investigated in detail.
You need to get a contrast mri brain and eeg study.
Drugs like carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine or lacosamide can be tried.
Upload any reports if available.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

I have already done an eeg and an mri with contrast. I have tried the first two drugs, and they made me feel worst than ever. I will upload the two reports to you.
After you have review them, maybe they is another solution to this disorder.

I have never had any types of seizures before, no one in my family has had any seizures before.

thanks..

These drugs can be tried

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern. The attached reports have been evaluated too.
For partial or complex partial seizures, lacosamide, valproate or levetiracetam can be tried too.
The side effects are less.
Regular treatment is required.
Wishing you good health and early recovery.

Hello again,

You should go ahead with treatment as a complete control in some cases is difficult and requires a trial of different drugs in various dosages.
