Balance problems after seizure

I've had a tendency to lose my balance to the right side since I've been diagnosed with right temporal epilepsy. I'm scared of this because it would appear to others that I'm drunk or stoned (which I'm NOT). I've also had bilateral knee replacements, so I don 't want to mess them up, either. Is balance a problem with others? Suggestions on how to deal with it?? I am on Lamictal, and have, luckily, not had a seizure since I've been on it. It scares me a lot.

    I was diagnosed with Temporal seizures. during an attack, i will become disoriented and confused, not knowing what is going on, though at the same time, i am kind of alert, to where i know that someone is talking to me, but i'm just not completely myself yet. it usually last for a couple of seconds. After, i start to become very hungry.

    My balance was usually off a bit, but not for too long after sitting down for a bit.

    My daughter was diagnosed with Mesial Temporal Sclerosis and from what I gathered it is closely related to temporal lobe epliepsy. Hers is on her left side and after any seizure episode she loses her balance and is unable to walk without falling down or into a wall. I never really noticed what side she seems to fall to though. But her doctor says that it is normal. I'm not sure how long it's supposed to last because she can't stay awake after a seizure long enough to function. But the last time it happened she was awake for 40 mins with balance issues before she passed out. I have heard of people who have balance problems even without having a seizure first. I would talk to your doc about it. They may need to run some more tests.
