Quality of Life With Epilepsy

Quality of life is a state of well-being that is a composite of two components: (1) the ability to preform everyday activities that reflect physical, psychological, and social well being. (2) patient satisfaction
with a better focus on disease.

My quality of life has changed numerous of times with epilepsy from just having seizure control by one medication and then changing back to the battles of four seizure for seizure control. But after the vns my total feelings changed towards epilepsy.

I still battle the quality if life with epilepsy. What is the real quality of life improvement for people with epilepsy?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Quality of life is impaired in epilepsy especially in older,women,married and partial seizures.
Self management program has proven effective in improving quality of life.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
