Hello Naisyaa, Thank you for the question.
Epilepsy is a disorder of the central nervous system (brain) that causes the brain's electrical activity to become abnormal, causing common symptoms in the form of seizures. This condition can be divided into two types namely idopathic epilepsy, namely unknown epilepsy, and symptomatic epilepsy, namely epilepsy caused by a condition such as head injury, infection, stroke, brain tumor. To diagnose epilepsy, doctors need to conduct question and answer, conduct nerve examinations, and perform a series of other examinations such as blood tests, CT scans, MRI, and EEG. Patients who are declared to have epilepsy will be recommended to consume drugs to stabilize electrical activity in the brain so that it can prevent seizures. Some of the side effects that can be caused by the consumption of epilepsy drugs are dizziness, weakness, increased body weight, reduced ability to remember, skin rashes, and depression.
If you experience chest pain, please consult with your doctor further to find the cause because it is not necessarily the consumption of the drug that is causing your chest pain complaints. Chest pain can be caused by a number of other health conditions such as acid reflux disease, pleurisy, pleural effusion, muscle injury, anxiety disorders, and others. Make sure you take medicine according to doctor's orders. You are advised to undergo treatment according to the doctor's orders with the aim of controlling seizures that occur due to epilepsy. If you are still hesitant to take the drug for fear that the drug is causing the chest pain that you are feeling, please consult a neurologist who is treating you immediately so that the doctor can provide further treatment.
Hopefully this information helps you.
