Patient Comments: Seizures - Experience With Absence Seizures

Please describe your experience with absence seizures.

Comment from: DR G, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: April 22

I have been experiencing absence seizures for about 16 months. Currently, I do not have any control of when I am going to have the next one. The symptoms include blurred vision, chest pains, impaired speech, memory loss, and falling. I sure wish that I never have another one.
