Suggest treatment for refractory epilepsy

Hello, I have had refractory epilepsy for 8 years now. One day it just started and it hasn t stopped. I have had brain surgery and surgery to get a VNS implanted. Neither helped. I have no medicine left to try. I am waiting for a new one to come out. I have already been checked for paraneoplastic syndromes, brain cancer, as well as limbic encephalitis. I believe it s getting worse because now I walk into things all the time and my hands shake all the time. Is there anything else you believe it can be?

Hello There

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that you should take second opinion from another neurologist for the same.

Hopefully this information will guide you properly.

Kind Regards
