My husband reports that after a seizure he definitely feels better, and that there is a subtle "off" feeling before one happens. That would support the earthquake/buldup of pressure theory, and make...

The DOT letter came yesterday

His license is suspended as of 3/22/11. :(

But I have talked to the neuro's office, and they say they will support the exemption on the basis that he has an extended aura before a seizure. ...

Tattoo, thank you for caring enough to look into this.

I don't consider this similar to a person who's never had seizures because (1) he's on a full dose of anti-sz meds, and (2) if he misses a...
