From this study (2 weeks ago):
Seizures began 2 years after a MVA with a mild concussion, as Grand Mal. They reduced in severity to absence seizures with current medication regimen. I experience severe mood swings and have become so agitated I was committed to a mental health facility for evaluation at one time. Recently I awoke to find my left hand in a severe contracture. I had spent the previous day in 105 degree weather, unaware of the temperature due to my seizure medications. I am curious to know if this is drug related or an acute sign of MS.
From this study (2 months ago):
Swollen lymph nodes were not present when started the treatment
