Pregnant and sezuires

Patient: I am currently 14 weeks pregnant. I have been having sezuires for about 6 years resulting from head trauma in 2000. They are partial complex sezuires and are triggered by stress. For the past two weeks i have been really lightheaded and off balance. I have been off balanced this whole timme as well. My legs get weak my body shakes and my face goes numb. When i close my eyes its feels liike im rocking but im not moving. I called my ob doc and she said it has nothing to do with my pregnancy and i have to call my reg doc. My regular doc said he cant do anything because im pregnant and to go to my nuerologist. He also said the only thing he can do is give me a shot that wouuld probably cause a miscairage. They arent even concerned about my baby and i know its not good for the baby. I have been having little sezuires since sunday. I just dont know what to do. I keep getting the run afound and nobody is getting anywhere. I just want to know whats going on! I dont know if i should be up and about because it makes the symptoms worse or if i should be on bed rest. Please help!
