    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    weather can be a trigger

    went on vacation and had the same thing. hot weather can cause certain seizure meds not to work and can also just cause seizures. i cant be out in the heat for more then 2 hours and i have to wear sunglasses all the time even when the sun starts to go down. sunlight triggers my seizures as well. also flying on a plane can cause seizures. i asked my neuro before i went on vacation about all this and he said i was fine. i changed doctors. i felt my neuro should have known all this and he did not tell me what to worry about. he felt my pharmacist should have told me that my keppra would be reduced by sunlight.
