I finally got word on Friday that I am MRSA free, yeah. Went to specialist today to have it confirmed that my 16 yr old Autistic son has Epilepsy, as if he didn't have enough troubles. Just ranting, carry on.

Oh Randy, I am so happy about you but I feel so badly for you about your son. I'm thinking positive for all of you. Hang in there. My thoughts and prayers are coming your way.

Great that your MRSA free! There are several treatment options for Epilepsy. I hope one of them works for your son!

Randy, it was obvious from your WP scores (usually ahead of me) and puzzles that you were healthy. Glad the doctor confirmed what I've noticed all along and hope MRSA (I had to look that up) doesn't come back.

Good luck with your son. I'll leave the medical expertise to Sandy, but I do read that epilepsy is often controlled with a single drug.

Good news/bad news.....I know sometimes it seems like one big, neverending test, huh? I'm thrilled for you, and praying that doctors can work out a successful way to control the epilepsy.

There's lots of love for you here among Sploofusers. Keep us posted!

Randy - I'm thrilled for you about your diagnosis - that MRSA sounds pretty scary. And I'm sorry about the news you received about your son. My stepbrother has epilepsy and has managed it for years and years with medication. I'm hoping your son's will be fairly manageable as well. Hang in there!

Thanks everyone I should have said that Jayce is not experiencing grand mal seizures so the specialist is confident it will be well controlled by meds. For anyone else out there with an autistic child, seizures are more common with Autism (none of specialists told me that, I think it might be fairly new science) & usually start around puberty. My son's just appeared to be muscle spasms to the Doctor until I saw him having a bigger one, quite recently. So keep your eyes open and you will catch it earlier than we did. Don't want to scare anyone, there's a very good chance your child won't be affected. I found some excellent information by googling Autism plus seizures.
