Common Questions and Answers about Seizure disorders respiratory failure

seizure

I started having seizures last february (2011). I don't have epilepsy, as far as they can tell I have toxic encephalopathy. Which means toxins were building up in my brain from the combo of meds I was on. My reg dr said "serotonin syndrome" is another possible dx. The definition of a "controlled" seizure disorder is no seizures for 6 months. I've been going more than 6 mos between seizures.

In between these spasmodic episodes ( that's what I call them ) his heart is racing so fast and hard and he is so out of breath! Like it has got to be taking a toll on his heart and respiratory! Every vein in his arms is popping out when he does this. afterwords he is just drenched in sweat!! Some days and night are worse and more severe than others. We have taken him to Dr after Dr, with no luck or idea as to why he has begun doing this!!!

I tried to feed him a liquid diet but he refused to take it. A day before he died, he had a seizure and rushed him to the emergency clinic. The vet there did not perform any diagnostic tests; he only put my pet in an oxygen cage and asked me to pick him up the following morning. Later that morning my pet was lifeless and rushed him again to a veterinary hospital. The vet there told us that he was in a coma and although she tried hard to revive him, he passed away at 1545 of Feb 21.

The treatment forces your body into a grand mal seizure and can affect memory, cognitive function, and learning in the short term. Our daughter has displayed symptoms of both mild hyperthyroid and extreme hypothyroid states over the past several months, sometimes even fluctuating over a few hours or days. This fluctuation has also shown up on thyroid blood tests both in Philadelphia and Milwaukee, but so far she has not had a full thyroid panel done.
Long-term health problems following acute Rocky Mountain spotted fever infection include partial paralysis of the lower extremities, gangrene requiring amputation of fingers, toes, or arms or legs, hearing loss, loss of bowel or bladder control, movement disorders and language disorders"
Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients. MANAGEMENT: During concomitant use of these drugs, patients should be monitored for potentially excessive or prolonged CNS and respiratory depression.
And when she has these spells, she's not lethargic or exhibitng any signs of respiratory destress. It's just blue lips on a very fair, blonde little girl and it's disturbing to see. I have decided to take matters into my own hands and order a portable pediatric pulse oximiter (easy to find if you Google it). The problem is, her lips are never blue anymore by the time I take her to the doctor.

Before the second stroke my mother asked not to be resuscitated in the event of a heart attack or respiratory failure. The reason for not resuscitating is because of the condition she would be in if she were to survive. She certainly did not want to be in a state of health like she currently is in. The difficult part in all of this is when I had to decide to let her die. Now we are waiting for the 'death call' from the hospital.
Thank you everyone I'm 22 and I have the same problem my heart beats so hard I feel like I'm havein a seizure or something.I can see my shirt move and my bed.It happens a lot and sometimes for a while but not all the time I have tried every thing.I stopped smoking cigarettes and weed I don't drink pop anymore or anything with caffeine and I don't drink alcohol.
The only thing I've found that makes sense online (I googled Caffeine intolerance - which was how I found you) was that people with anxiety disorders seem more susceptible to caffeine intolerance, something about it causing over-stimulation. Anxiety disorders run in my family, and my mother, who has both an anxiety disorder and a heart condition, can also not drink caffeine. She just goes spastic if she does. I haven't really tried to do very much research into the issue.
This test can be used for diagnostic purposes but is widely been used in research for many disorders so basically I'm being slotted in when they can. Neuro's latest thoughts are leber's hereditary optic neuropathy plus syndrome. This is because of my dad's history and the plus syndrome is like an ms syndrome. Trouble is I know leber's is a mitochondrial disorder so it has be passed down from your mother not your father. My swallowing problems have worsened over the past couple of years.
I cannot tell if something is burning, and cleaning chemicals/sprays are a nightmare as I learned to be very careful when cleaning and inhaling the fumes after I got a few respiratory infections. I did a great deal of research after the head injury and there was not much info out there. However, that was 10 years ago and a lot has changed. I can taste sweet, sour and definitely salt which can seem overwhelming if I feel something is too salty..I don't eat it.
It started out with an upper respiratory infection that I found out from the doctor. Now my daughter around 2 every morning will wake up screaming and crying and throwing up everything in her stomach. She will either throw up 2 or 3 times or for more than an hour. Every night it continues to happen and we are exhausted from no sleep having to care for my ill child. There has to be some answeres.
You may not even know that you are having a heart palpitation or racing heart rate. My symptoms I thought were respiratory related but come to find out that they were not. These were my symptoms: While standing still for more than a few minutes, I would get irritable, short of breath, yawned,restless, nervous, and sometimes feel my heart going fast. While exercising, my heart rate would sky rocket and I would feel faint and dizzy and really short of breath.
of cardiology and are not interested in the research connecting the digestive system disorders to A/Fib. Ablation didn't work well either. How do we get the Dr's to investigate this?--NeddyPoo.
My shrink says it is a symptom of an anxiety disorder. My sons have been diagnosed with various disorders within the Autism spectrum although neither of the rock. Since Autism spectrum disorders are often hereditary I wonder if my rocking is a symptom of a disorder within that spectrum.. I am also glad that I am not the only one who does this..
I have stenosis of the spine and the c's and l's are not what they should be, i guess what i am doing is venting and perhaps other people can recognize some of these symtoms, mother died of brain tumors at 43 father alive but has congestive heart failure, dementia, diabetes, colon cancer, was a nurse aide for 7 years and ruined my back and get so tired, forgetful, weak and frightened and take a variety of medications for high blood pressure and high colestrol and anxiety, nothing for pain, as D
they know a seizure is coming on.) This is usually a feeling of lightheadedness and a drop in blood pressure. I can usually avoid the seizure by putting my head between my legs to get more blood to my brain. I have read that others have had a diagnosis of GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) related to these events. I have been diagnosed with both in the past. I am sure that this is vasovagal fainting associated with valsalva.
I questioned the dr and he said they put her on a preventitive anti-seizure medication just to make sure she wouldn't have one. I researched the med and found out that one of the side effects was extreme drowsiness and unresponsiveness. We demanded they stop the med which they did and she immediately improved. She never did have a seizure. Watch your brothers meds!!! Look them up online and research what they are giving him. Question everything. You guys will be ok. I know you will.
And just speaking of ourselves, we have been wrongly accused of all sorts of psychiatric disorders including paranoia, depression, psychozophrenia, etc.. just to name a few. And the only reason is that we told MDs about our symptoms. Also others around us think we do not practice hygiene, or we do not bathe, or brush our teeth, etc. So for all of these reasons, we need a case report published in Lancet, or New England Journal of Medicine, Nature etc...
A few days prior to the incident, I had taken myself off of the pramipexole that I'd been on for a week, as I was having trouble swallowing (for which the amoxicillin and lanso were prescribed - possible sinus/throat infection or gastric reflux - doc and I wanted to attack on both fronts in order to avoid the return of the laryngospams I'd had during recent respiratory infection). Thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to help...
