As for reading charts... the neurologist I see is supposed to be the top of the heap as far as epilepsy is concerned in this neck of the woods...
it was the first one who put me on topomax and he knows about it because he is actually a headache specialist...
what a weird circle of events it took to get me onto topomax... sent to the wrong neurologist in the first place LOL

at any rate, every appointment, the neuro asks about the last appointments... can't be bothered taking a second to refresh his memory by checking my file...
then he asks about the recent statis episodes, has my husband tell him what happened each time...
I do not have to hear it again and my husband does not have to relive it again... and again and again...
Does he not realise that it is hard on the man to review these things...
and stress undoes the benefit of the topomax...
starts the seizure activity all over sigh...

By the way, does anyone else wear medicalert bracelet or medallion ... you know, the thing that tells paramedics and er personnel that you have a particular medical condition or are on a particular mediction???

As I am violently allergic to codeine and to penicillin and because of the epilepsy and 'asthma'-like condition, I wear a bracelet...
but I have never known anyone to pay any attention to it...

the last time the ambulance had to be called, I came to just as the firemen were coming into the living room with oxygen...
one of them checked my pulse and blood pressure...
ignored the bracelet...

the paramedics arrived and one started an iv while the other checked my pulse and blood pressure...
neither looked at the bracelet...

got to er... someone added something to the iv
checked my pulse and blood pressure and did all sorts of things
at no time did anyone look at my bracelet to find out if I had any condition that might need to be considered or any allergy to medication...

so why did I bother with all that money to register and maintain my registration??????

go figure...
