I didn't develop epilepsy until I was 23. But all my life I've had auras, but we didn't connect the two until the seizures began to follow them. I'm on 3 medications which are able to stop the seizures but not the auras. The next step is a VNS device.
Would a VNS device be worth it if only to stop the auras?

That's unfortunate. My neurologist gave me the option of just living with auras or getting the VNS. To me, a expensive VNS would be unnecessary to just stop auras. But at the same time Auras can be scary because what happens if a seizure does happen to come through at the worst time.
