Anja Warneke

Hi, I'm Anja Warneke, from Bremen in Germany, and I want to write about my epilepsy.
When I was seven years old had a brain injury. It happened in a village on the cyclist way beside the Bundesstrasse 6 and so on.
It was on July 18th 1983.
In November 1999 I went to a neurologist who diagnosed epilepsy. He gave me the medication Carbamazepin and in May 2000 I changed the doctor. She said after every seizure I should take in 400 mg more and more until i got poison's situations. Then she wanted to gave me Ergonyl. After I took in this medication together with high dosed Carbamazepin I got lever and heartaches.
Then I came into a hospital where the doctors dosed down the Carbamzepine down from 1600 mg on 600 mg during three days and gave me some other medications. So I became consciousless and my left movable bodyside I couldn't move any more.
Some when one a a half months later I went to another hospital 300 km away from home. There had been a doctor who helped me with Neurontin and Lamictal and rescued my life. That's good.
