Yes, that is so true and I really try to educate people that seizures don't always involve loss of bowel/bladder and tonic/clonic
He was admitted with the same jumping conditions and the continuous eeg showed abnormal brainwaves that were very slow, despite the fact his body was ramped up. His own neuro was on vacation, so we were stuck with the on-call. She took one look at husband and deemed him a faker and out for some monetary reward. Sadly that followed us around for a couple of years and shut the door on some of the best ones in Seattle. Finally a neuro psych did some testing and deemed him with a sz disorder, backing his neuro's assessment.
Every day I pray that the new medication will work, but when I see the twitching starting and the rough, gravel voice I cringe. the last time he jumped for 16 hours and I went to work (left an adult child home with him) on 90 minutes of sleep because the noise was awful.
How do you guys function and stay positive? I wish he would be tested for sleep apnea, but he is in total denial.
