Suggest treatment for seizures

I am 15 years old, 5 foot 8 inches, 195-200 pounds. I have a history of seizures (haven t had one since I was around 6 or 7 years old), and exercise induced asthma (not as much anymore). I am not up to date on vaccines. I had my last vaccination when I was 5 years old, I don t know what it was for. My family does homeopathy. My question: I am always tired. I could sleep for 12-15 hours, and I ll still feel like I want to sleep in the middle of the day. Sometimes I do, and I could take 2-3 hour naps. I never actually feel hungry anymore. I eat, my diet isn t really the best, but I eat. I have been getting frequent headaches, and sometimes I feel a little dizzy. I want to know, what could be causing this? I am getting tested for Anemia. Is that the right thing to get tested for, or should I get tested for something else?

Hi,

Your symptoms could be due to anemia. Please get a complete blood count done. Also, please get your thyroid profile done, as it could be due to hypothyroidism.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Abhishek Juneja, Neurologist
