6 years ago, I was diagnoised with Encephalitis it all nearly killed me. At the time, just before I had a severe UTI and was on antibiotics. Since then I have had temperolobe absent seizures around 3-7 times a week, generally in a batch over a couple of days. I am taking a large does of Keppra 1500mg plus Lamictal 200mg twice a day, this doesn't stop it but I think it does improve things.
Could the UTI be related to the start of this seizure disorder?

I had encephalitis as a child
I had encephalitis as a child and from there developed epilepsy. Mine is also in the temporal lobe and I know of others who developed epilepsy following encephalitis.

I developed my epilepsy after
I developed my epilepsy after having a large abcess on my brain. My neurologist told me that the epilepsy starts after a neurological illness such as ours, the damage actually cased to the brain is what can make the patient develop epilepsy.
