Common Questions and Answers about Grand mal seizure video games


Avatar n tn In doing some research, it seems that playing video games may or may not have a role in grand mal seisures.

Avatar n tn now about every 6 months or so, he has a seizure, and they are no longer like the complex partial that he used to have, they are more like grand mal...when we returned to the neurologist, she thinks that either he was misdiagnosed from the beginning and actually has jme, or that some scar tissue could be causing the brain to misfire occassionally. with the original diagnosis they ran the following tests, eeg, asleep eeg, video eeg, mri, and pet scan.
493978 tn?1209558218 Throughout all the time leading to the video recordings of the EEG, I havent ever had a grand mal or major seizure.

Avatar f tn complex partials all of my life but at an older age I statred having grand mals as well. In regards to video games and computers it all depends on what triggers the seizures. I am unable to stay exposed to video games and computer screens for long time periods due to the bright, counter-connecting waves which for unexplained reasons trigger my seizures. Once again, that's something to discuss with your doctor. I would suggest observing your seizure activity while on the computer.
Avatar n tn No problems until he was 15 when he had a grand mal seizure after staring at the sun. No problems until Jan 1, 2007 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and was told he had probably had it for awhile. He was hospitalized with ketoacidosis for 6 days. He is 19yrs old now. He is insulin dependant. In March he had a grand mal seizure at school outside after basketball practice. We assumed his blood sugar was low or it was the light. The neurologist had to reschedule his appointment twice.
Avatar m tn A partial seizure involving the face often lasts longer and occurs more frequently than a facial tic that happens in conjunction with a larger, grand mal seizure. Dogs who are severely affected by facial mal seizures may suffer as many as five to 10 episodes an hour, or as few as one every few months. Facial seizures that accompany grand mal seizures most often occur in the aura phase of a seizure.
Avatar f tn after a few seconds of half laying down half sitting up, he falls backwards and begins to go into what would be described as a grand mal seizure. I have to say that I was pretty terrified. He snapped out of it within about 30 seconds to a minute. My father is an emergency room doctor and a physician; I disregarded my friend and asked my father what he thought, to which he said that he needs to get it checked out.

Avatar f tn Hi, my 17 yro son was found last week, on the ground, across the street from his HS. Apparently he was having a severe Grand Mal Seizure. EMS reported he had been seizing for at least 15 minutes. Verset was administered to stop his seizing. However, he has a history of neg reaction to Versed as well as many other medications. This is due to a medobolic disorder, which causes various reactions and poor metabolizing of all drug's.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with grand-mal seizures when Iwas 15 yoa after having my first grand mal seizure. After batteries of tests through the years (I am now 53 and seizure free for 18 years), I have never been given a reason for why. After 36 years of being on Dilantin and those side effects, I was placed on Topamax in the last year and have tolerated it well so far.

Avatar f tn I am 29, and had my 2nd Mirena IUD inserted in January of this year (2012), because I had it before and loved it.

Avatar m tn After some of my seizures (post operation) I came to consciousness begging the paramedics to give me tissues to blow my nose and rid my throat of congestion and mucus. I experienced my last grand mal seizure ten days ago while walking around the city of Dominica when the temperature was well over 90 deg. F. About 20 minutes prior to the seizure I drank a bottle of water sold to me by a street vendor who retrieved the bottle from a dirty ice water chest!

Avatar n tn Six months ago I was camping and had a hypoglycemic grand mal seizure that lasted approx. 1 1/2 hours (the person I was with did not know what to do). I won't go into the short-term complications I experienced. However, I still experience weakness and mild pain in my lungs and periodic studdering. What are the long-term complications of a sustained seizure? Why do my lungs still hurt! Thank you so much!
Avatar f tn Now nearly 3 years ago I had brain surgery (left temporal lob resection) and went a little over a year seizure free. Then I had a grand mal seizure. Was doing fine and all of a sudden started having seizures in a different form that I've never had before. I feel like I'm going into a grand mal seizure. My body jerks and it's over quickly. I will sometimes yell out before. I also get the feeling that my brain is jumping all around. What does all this mean?
Avatar n tn Eight months ago I suffered a Grand Mal Seizure. It was my first one and I have no family history of seizures. I find that I am now dealing with memory loss. I am frustrated because my memory was pretty sharp prior to the seizure. My doctor never really said that I'd experience this and I was wondering if anyone else is dealing with this as well. I'm not on any type of meds. for seizures or anything else.
Avatar n tn This time I had what doctors described as a generalized grand mal siezure. I was standing in the kitchen talking to my wife and my next thought was "Why are these paramedics standing over me"? According to her, I stood in front of her and stared at her for 30 seconds, stumbled towards the refrigerator, and collapsed on the floor. She said I was jerking all over in a rythm(as opposed to randomly). My total unconciousness lasted 6-7 minutes.
