seizure

I am 14 years old and have passed out in the shower one time before, but i could still hear things, my vision just got very blurry. This time i was in the shower in the morning and i began to become very dizzy, and normally when this happens i just put my hands on the walls and close my eyes. Once i did this next thing i knew i woke up sitting on my shower floor with my hair tangled on my shower knob, holding my head up.
Went to listen to live music at 7. Thought it would b nice to remember a weekend nite. Sat down and WHAM like I got smacked in the back of the head with a hammer. Was texting, started shaking REAL bad. Dropped phone. Lost it for 1-2 minutes. Acutuley aware of what was going on but was paralyzed. Is this a seizure? Spoke to a friend who has an epileptic friend and he said spots in front of your eyes is a good indicator one is coming. Had that at 5:30 or so. Worst in my life.
This morning I awoke with nauesa, which went away after an hour or so and it was replaced with a headache and blurred vision. These were the same symptoms that I had in the hospital shortly after the seizure. All symptoms are gone, other than the blurry vision, which seems worse in my left eye. Should I be concerned about these symptoms? Is it possible that I had another seizure in my sleep and awoke with the normal symptoms?
The last thing I need is to come off as a emotional wreck. It makes me angry that something is wrong and in many diseases if caught early, the outcomes are better.

This morning in the shower I think I had some type of seizure... I am 24 years old (female) and have never had a seizure before and neither has anyone in my family. It started with me feeling like I was blacking out (like you sometimes do if you stand up too quickly) and then I lost control of my body and could not stand up. After that I started shaking involuntarily, which lasted for less than a minute.
Three weeks after starting the Keppra he had his first gran mal seizure in the shower. It seemed like his seizures were worsening with the meds. We asked the Dr. this and he just said that he was growing and his seizures change. He continued to have seizures with running, playing basket ball and showers. These were the only times they occured. The Doctor then started him on Topomax with the other 2 meds . Still seizures. He then advised us to have a Vagus Nerve stimulator.

If you don't remember anything during the event, then there is a possibility that this could be a seizure episode, and this should be evaluated through an EEG (electroencephalogram). Other more common reasons would include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels) due to fatigue. There can also be an abrupt lowering of your blood pressure upon exposure to a hot shower (since high temperature can make your blood vessels dilate and therefore lower blood pressure causing you to faint on the spot.
After 3 weeks he had only one absence seizure, but then he had his first gran mal seizure. That was in August 07, he was in the shower. He continued to have some absence seizures, but with exercise and showers he would have a gran mal's. We saw a pattern with the exercise and hot showers, we stopped his sports. Now he just has gran mal in showers or immediatly after . I am a nurse, and I just felt very concerned that this could be something else.
You were unable to control your body. Hopefully it was only a side effect of an increase in the dose of your meds. Hang in there! And good luck with your migraines as well.
I'm sorry that with all the research on how harmful this component is, companies can hide the fact that it is in shower cleaner, carpet cleaners and many, many products. It causes autoimmune issues and ANEMIA. Because it causes so many different things at the same time, researchers, don't think anything is the matter with the red blood cells. Seizures can also be caused from lack of oxygen.
My son is 3yrs he will be 4 in June, perfectly normal little boy with normal development, no seizure history in both sides of the family. His 1st seizure was feb 17, 2011 lasted about a minute, the night before he had a high fever and later that same day also. Both fevers were treated. On the first episode he spent the night at the hospital for observation because when they took his temperature in the emergency room it was actually low 96F.
A week and a half later, she fainted again in the shower and then later on in the day she fainted in the hallway at school. She went to the family doc who did an EKG and sent her for a glucose test. The EEG was already scheduled. A consult with the pediatric cardiologist was set up. Ok so,,, now the neurologist wants her to start on Keppra immediately. I know nothing about seizure activity and/or this medication.
when she came back into the room, I was unconscious and fell backwards into the shower curtains. I was shaking like crazy and was really stiff while my mom was trying to pick me up and she said she was screaming at me. I don't remember anything and regained conciousness once she got me upright. my mom thinks it was an epileptic seizure that is triggered by pain but epilepsy usually occurs in infants and adults and I'm 16.
The same thing happened about 2 years ago in the shower and he also said once before in the bathroom at school. Should we go to a doctor and have this checked out? We think it could've been from dehydration or lack of oxygen but we're not sure.
00am, i snoozed till 630am and jumped out of bed after a long sleep. I got in the shower, while in the shower i started to feel nauseous as if i was going to puke. I got out of the shower, dried off, put on some lotion; basic post shower routine. I went to the kitchen still feeling nauseous to get some water, then decided to hover over the toilet incase i puked. I never was able to puke so i went back to the kitchen for more water.
if it was only the upper limbs, you probably had a partial seizure. It may have been an abortive seizure, which means the seizure gets aborted before it takes a full blown form. It is possible that this was a seizure. Please get a fresh EEG done. If the EEG comes back normal, you can relax.
My 15 yr old daughter developed a neck twitch out of the blue one day 6 months ago and since then suffers from seizure like episodes every couple days where she is unconcious, jerks, holds her breath, and twitches. She has fallen in the shower, out of bed, or wherever they decide to happen. She spent a week in the hospital where she had MRI, EEG, cat scan all normal. They are now saying its anxiety or stress.
That's what he did, threw up. Then he was crying and trying to sleep on my husband in the shower. I called the doctor who said take him to ER. They referred me to take him to a seizure clinic on Thursday or Friday. I am really nervous. Anyone else have a child with a seizure disorder or have a child who's had a seizure? Any advise?
At 14 Had a grand mal seizure (in shower). My mother believed it was from not eating. I dropped a lot of weight very quickly, and was not eating properly. CT scans normal, MRI normal (sinus problems though), and EEG's have been normal, BUT I've had some show slowing (whatever that means). Have been on a non-theraputic level of Dilantin for years! Last week started with a new neurologist, and she would like me to try Lexapro; in which I'm very afraid too! She thinks maybe it's JUST anxiety.
Elizabeth's best friend was in a bad accident 3 years ago. The driver in the car that hit her head on had a seizure. Elizabeth's friend is doing ok now. She was lucky she didn't get killed, she has a teenage daughter.
I woke up in the middle of the night a few nights ago with abdominal pain. When I got out of bed I noticed I felt very weak and strange. I went to the restroom and as I sat there I began to sweat excessively to the point where my pajamas and body were completely soaked as though I had just got out of the shower. I began to feel weaker and barely was able to shout for my husband. when he came in I was on the floor and my body felt tight .

I fainted/passed out in the bath tub last night. Prior to getting in the shower I was extremely tired and was feeling a very sharp pain going through my head. I had to close my eyes and hold on to my head. My body was telling me to lay down but i wanted to take a shower so that i can have a good sleep. Once i was in the shower, my legs started shaking so i knew i need to get out of the shower.
The good news is, there is a good chance you will never again have a seizure. Usually they don't give anti-seizure meds until the third seizure. You should not be working as a lineman during that time because there are other types of seizures, called petit mal, where you lose a sense of awareness that could cause death around power lines. Essentially, you no longer have a valid driving license.
She had another possible seizure in November 2007. She was taken a shower a her grandfather knocked on the door and she did not open it or respond. He found her laying in the shower. They are not sure if she had fallen/fainted/or had a seizure. She got out and got dressed and does not remember doing any of this. She was taken via ambulance to the e/r, they worked her up and advised that everything came back normal.
