Many people have "intractable" seizures that don't respond to
treatment. It may be that your seizures are of this type. However, the
only thing that could be bad about seeking a second opinion is if it
hindered your relationship with your current neurologist. If he/she is
good and has your best interests in mind, then they should not object
to you getting a second opinion. If they object or make you feel
uncomfortable about getting a second opinion, that's a bad sign.

Note: I am -not- a healthcare professional, and this is just my own
uninformed opinion.

For additional information for patients, see www.aesnet.org, the
American Epilepsy Society's website.




Good luck,

Matt
