Patient discussion about time

Q. what are the chances for a one time epileptic seizure? I had an epileptic seizure a few years ago and after all the tests it appeared to be a one time seizure. I know having one indicates my tendency for this kind of seizures so should I be afraid now to do things that might bring it up again- like alcohol, drugs, being exposed to flashing lights or having lack of sleep? what are the chances of it to come back after 5 years? any help will be very appreciated....thanks!

A. After 5 years with no recurrence of seizures after a one time episode, tha chances of having another one are low, almost exact to the general population. I would not advise you to start heavily drinking alcohol and doing drugs, because these things can certainly have an effect, however you need not be afraid.

Q. i get headaces all the time what do i need to do?

A. Is this new? Are these headaches worsened after lying down? What side of the body are they?

Constant headache in young female may be migraine or pseudotumor cerebri, both have treatments that necessitate prescription by a doctor.

You can read more about them here:

Q. my legs hurt all the time, what is wrong with them? they ach in the joints and sometimes I get burning needle point pain and the muscles feel like sandpaper

A. There can be a lot of reasons for leg or joint pain, and usually there are not specific problems you can deal with medically. Are you exercising too much? Sometimes stress fractures from running can cause the kind of pain you are describing. Either way you should see someone about this if it is bothering you, either an orthopedic surgeon or a neurologist.
