Common Questions and Answers about Seizure aura stage

seizure

Avatar n tn (deja-vu) (c) smell (olfactory aura) (d) sounds, simple or complex/formed (auditory aura) (ii) SEIZURE - EARLY STAGE (also called complex partial seizure) - In the vast majority of temporal lobe seizures, an observer commonly notices that the patient stares, looks "spaced out", and fails to respond (or inappropriately responds) to calls or commands. Although the patient usually looks "awake" in this phase of the seizure, he or she loses mental contact with the world.
Avatar f tn Hi, before onset of seizure usually people experience aura which is characterized by different visual perceptions, tingling sensations, nausea etc. It varies from person to person. “An aura is the perceptual disturbance experienced by some migraine sufferers before a migraine headache, and the telltale sensation experienced by some people with epilepsy before a seizure. It often manifests as the perception of a strange light or an unpleasant smell.

Avatar f tn Remembering this i sat up took deep breaths had my mom hold a conversation with me and keep talking to me and having me talk back and stay conscious. I never went into the seizure. Is it possible to stop a seizure if you know its starting?
Avatar f tn been sleeping a lot--yesterday felt strange as well, but not like this, this is definitely a seizure on the way. Took a tavor, going to lie down.
Avatar m tn What you are suffering from is probably olfactory hallucination or phantosmia or phantom smell. It is usually due to seizure, or due to schizophrenia or depression or due to an aura of migraine. It can also be due to a problem in olfactory receptor mechanism. This could be due to a smell getting trapped by nasal polyps or tumors. Sinusitis with post nasal drip can cause both a phantom smell and nausea and this should be investigated first by an ENT.

Avatar n tn Olfactory hallucination or phantosmia or phantom smell is usually due to seizure, or due to schizophrenia or depression or due to an aura of migraine. So yes, like visual migraine it can also be an aura of migraine. It can also be due to a problem in olfactory receptor mechanism. This could be due to a smell getting trapped by nasal polyps or tumors. Sinusitis with post nasal drip can cause both a phantom smell and nausea and this should be investigated first by an ENT.
Avatar f tn What your mother is suffering from is probably olfactory hallucination or phantosmia. It is usually due to seizure, or due to schizophrenia or depression or due to an aura of migraine. It can also be due to a problem in olfactory receptor mechanism. This could be due to a smell getting trapped by nasal polyps or tumors. Since it can be something serious, your mother should be seen by a psychiatrist, ENT specialist and a neurologist. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar f tn Docs always told me it was an anxiety attack but come to find out I was having simple partial siezures with aura. I remain conscious, have the seizure and then fall asleep. Completely wipes me out and most of them occurred in the evening or with lights/sound triggers. Antihistamines caused mine too. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn The type of aura you have is called an abdominal aura. The aura usual tells you where the seizure begins. It is sort a localizing sign. Best of luck with your "dents". I am sure that what is inside of your heart far outweighs the small dents that probably few people even notice.
Avatar f tn Primary Generalized Seizure, Absence Seizure, Atypical Absence Seizure, Myoclonic Seizure, Atonic Seizure, Tonic Seizure, Clonic Seizure, Tonic-Clonic Seizure, Partial Seizure, Simple-Partial Seizure, Complex-Partial Seizure, Secondary Generalized Seizure, Psychogenic Seizure, and Hypoxic Seizure.
Avatar n tn The International League Against Epilepsy classification calls these types of seizures simple (there is no loss or change in awareness). We think that aura are the beginning of seizure activity. In the cases where there is an aura and no overt seizure activity, the likely explanation is that there are a group of neurons in an area that are activiated that produce the aura. However, they do not spread to other areas that produce motor or loss of awareness.
594907 tn?1227309164 Well per my own research, per epilepsy.com, an aura is a simple partial seizure. I can't believe how long my question has been posted on this site without a response, Over two months. I do enjoy reading this forum though. I find it interesting and can relate to some of the other symptoms that others go through. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
486038 tn?1300063367 Can you have an aura without a seizure? 2 different questions, but important. Basically, I just switched to a generic seizure control medication 2 days ago- and today was the first time since last fall that I had an aura (or something) and thought I was going to have a seizure. It happened so fast- I was standing there and suddenly it just waved over me and I thought "NO!!".... it was this weird feeling of odd dejavuah (it's hard to explain) ...
