Hi, my son was diagnosed with rolandic epilepsy about 3

Hi, my son was diagnosed with rolandic epilepsy about 3 years ago - he is now 9. He is taking 400 mg of Carbetrol in the morning and another 400 mg at night. He also has a stutter which seems to have begun right around the time that he was diagnosed. Is it possible that the Carbetrol could be the cause - or possibly a correlation with his seizures and speech?

My 17 year old son has been dizzy for months.. we thought it may be his vision - he got glasses -- still dizzy, lately excessive hunger - doesn t feel like himself - says after he eats he is so lathargic and fatigued and can t concentrate at all. He has rolandic epilepsy when he was younger but has been without medication for same for years and hasn t had another seizure either. Any thoughts? EKG scheduled for Monday.

My son gets pretty pale when he does high activity exercise. He is in a travel basketball league and plays back to back games. He is 10 years old and usually during game two looks very pale and has dark circles under his eyes. He says he does not feel tired, does not feel weak or shaky and does not have trouble breathing . What could be the reason for the pale look? He eats well and healthy, takes vitamins , and other than having rolandic epilepsy , he has had no ongoing health problem.

My 8 year-old-daughter has been experiencing numbness in the lower part of her face (cheeks, chin , tip of nose ) and fingers. She has had nonfebrial seizures in the past. The numbness was first associated with only the right side of her face and would happen only periodically. Then it progressed to her chin and then included the left side of her face. Her fingers are the most recent manifestation of the numbness. Now the numbness is pretty much constant and we have her rate the degree of numbness on a 1-10 scale (its usually between 6-10) Could this be some type of interictal discharges caused by benign rolandic epilepsy? I am concerned that she may have a tumour or MS. My father s sister has MS and, although I realize that my daughter is probably too young to present with MS symptoms, I wanted to mention my aunt just in case it is relevant.
