In an attempt to experience a seizure Free ME - VICTORY, I had an epiphany last week while tracking seizures. Please understand, For each seizure survivor the journey is personal - similar but different - UNIQUE. Although I had been following advice form professionals it seemed at this time in my life the advice just wasn't working. What advice? Omega Oils for seizure management. Made sense, Omegas decrease swelling even in brain tissue. Swelling causes stress on the body, stress triggers seizures. So, I found the right daily milligrams suggested for my body weight and went about easing into taking them. All was well until I hit the amount suggested. My seizures increased suddenly in number ( not severity). Initially my ego would not allow me to consider the Omega Oils. Several days later I put ego aside and face reality. Just because a certain amount of Omegas is recommended for my body weight, this does not mean I must take this amount to decrease swelling(inflammation) and enjoy the other benefits. Without a doctors opinion, I determined I was taking too much daily Omega Oil. Immediately I stopped and the seizures went away completely. Now, understand, my brain has a genetic abnormality causing unpredictable seizures so now I am just waiting with patience. Was it too much Omegas or just time for seizure clusters??? I will know in a day or two as the seizures have been occurring weekly for years. No seizures for a week or two( lets say two), then I'm on my way to seizure free me - VICTORY!
