On 11th November I had a seizure at home . I have no recollection of the event and found myself in a general ward in hospital . I’ve been a wheelchair user for some time, but still able to take a dozen steps with a rollator . When I awoke in hospital my legs were totally paralysed and I only had slight movement in my arms. I was kept in bed for four weeks (wrong treatment) and on December 11th moved to a rehabilitation ward for intense physiotherapy. I am still in hospital but have greatly improved and almost back to my condition prior to seizure.
My neurologist has clearly stated that the seizure was a side effect of Fampyra. He has had other patients experiencing seizure and he and his colleagues no longer prescribe Fampyra .
Has anyone else had a similar experience with Fampyra ? I had been taking the drug for two years without any problems, although I don’t think I was gaining much benefit latterly.
