Atlanta, GA- Penny Toein has been having seizures for as long as she can remember. Sometimes as many as 30 seizures a day before she started medications.

You just had a seizure…and another one… and another one…

Today she is happy to report that her epilepsy is well controlled. She now has a dozen or fewer well-controlled seizures a day.

“Before my seizures could randomly happen anytime and I would convulse all over the place” Ms. Toein told Gomerblog, “but now they’re very scheduled on the hours and occur in a very well-controlled predictable pattern.”

“First I fall over, then the legs start followed by the arms. Usually around then I lose continence and it goes on for exactly 47 seconds every time.”

When asked if she has thought about changing her neurologist, Mrs. Toein was a bit perplexed, “why? Each seizure I have is very well controlled. What could be better than that?
