Seizure aura without seizure

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure aura without seizure


Avatar m tn I don't think people who have a seizure remember the seizure, but he definitely had something. Maybe it's a thyroid problem. He needs to be seen, but an ER is the slowest, most expensive and least efficient way to do it.
594907 tn?1227312764 Well per my own research, per, 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!!
Avatar f tn Migraine headaches with aura do have a subform wherein a typical aura like a visual symptom may occur without the presence of headaches or headaches occur in more than an hour or so but not during the presence of an aura. An EEG may also help rule out an accompanying seizure. Partial seizures may present with aura.This is just one of the differentials though.So discuss your concerns with your physician. Keep a close follow up with your physician.Do keep us posted for anything.
Avatar n tn Evie, How long did your headache last and what did you do to get rid of it? I have migraine with aura which means my seizure prior to my migraine is a warning that the migraine is coming on. Blurred vision and nausea are systoms of a migraine.
Avatar f tn However I will try to provide you with some useful information. The chest pressure may be an aura or it may be directly related to the seizure. People with temporal lobe epilepsy and other types of seizures may have ictal arrhythmias (i.e., abnormal heart beats with the seizure). I suggest you discuss your symptoms with your epileptologist. You may need to be monitored on a continuous EEG with concomitant EKG to assess if you maintain normal sinus rhythm during your seizure.
Avatar n tn I was driving along when I started to get light headed, I pulled over in a parking lot and started having a small seizure (an aura without losing consciousness). After it stopped and I felt better, I started home (yes, I know what everyone is thinking, but I've done it many times before. I always wait 'til I feel 100% again, which with me only takes a few minutes. I've had these since I was a month old, so I know how they tick.) Suddenly I just couldn't move.
Avatar f tn I have also had ehat I thought was a migraine with aura twice in the last 3 months. The last one lasted three days and on the 3rd day I suffered vision loss while washing dishes then had a seizure. I live alone but I was aware that I was going to have a seizure and remember falling to the floor. An hour later I awoke and had bitten my tongue and had great difficulty walking. Was this due to the migraine???? Never had this happen and did not go tohospital.
Avatar m tn First, some history - about 8 years ago my husband had a tension-pneumo thorax and had a chest tube placed. Several hours later he woke from sleep complaining of extreme nausea and being "hot" then suffered a syncopal episode along with what appeared to be a "seizure." Upon further evaluation the neuro determined it was a vasovagal reaction to the chest tube.
Avatar f tn The relationship between migraine and epilepsy is poorly understood but is thought migraine can infrequently represent a type of aura or warning that one is about to have a seizure. That said, obviously not everyone with migraine headaches is having an aura or is at risk for seizure, however the seizures do occur somewhat more in patients with migraine and visa versa. I would try to see a neurologist as soon as your able.
Avatar n tn Husband has family history of sleep apnea, so we went for sleep study where they found she was having seizure activity in her sleep. Further MRI and EEG found incidental chairi malformation and abnormal EEG with generalized spike and wave discharges; also during sleep portion she had increased generalized frontally dominant spike and wave discharges.
Avatar f tn Hi, Your symptoms suggest of a Grand mal seizure. Please wait for EEG and consult a neurologist for confirmation of diagnosis and treatment. A grand mal seizure is often followed by a period of confusion and delirium for a few days. You doctor is right in saying that you must not drive because you may have such seizures again. You should not drive unless you are free from seizures for a period of 6 months after taking treatment. Please take proper treatment. Hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn When I was a child I suffered grand-mal seizures when I had even the slightest of fevers. I grew out of that, but I began having seizures again at 12 yoa (not related to fever). I seemed to outgrow them again, but hit my head several times in a car accident at 17 yoa. and I began having seizures again. I stopped having seizures in 1983 and have not been medicated since 1989. However, I have been suffering migraines ever since I stopped having seizures.
Avatar f tn Probably the heart monitor gives the most value: eg, a way to indicate the number of episodes in a single day and the severity/length/type (eg partial, tonic-clonic, myoclonic, absence: I get all of these and it is important to note the difference. and their placement in time relative to each other.
Avatar n tn Yes, often times seizure medication will prevent generalization (grand mal) evolution of a seizure without being able to halt the initial phases of the seizure (aura or reduction of mental awareness). I would talk to his physician as there are many new medications on the market that may prevent the "trance" states. I hope things are corrected for your husband.
439601 tn?1357864486 Now there are three different kinds of seizures, the type of seizure a person has depends on a variety of things, such as the part of the brain affected. I get an aura before I have a seizure, not sure if everybody has that, but I get a strange sensation, some people smell an order or feel a tingling.
Avatar m tn The pet senses that something is coming and the owner can predict a seizure is coming. 2. Ictal (seizure) stage-this is the true seizure and often lasts from a few seconds to a few minutes followed by a period of disorientation and sometimes the loss of site. 3. Post-ictal-this is the recovery period after the seizure. This period may not be noticed or could be very prominent lasting from a short period of time to a lengthy time span depending on the pet.
Avatar f tn Your breathing is labored and you may urinate or defecate involuntarily. In a tonic seizure, your muscles generally stiffen without rhythmical jerking. This stiffening or rigidity also involves the breathing muscles and you may cry out or moan. In an atonic seizure (also known as a drop attack), your muscle control is suddenly lost, causing you to fall if you are standing. In a myoclonic seizure, your limbs jerk abruptly.
486038 tn?1300066967 I've only had 2 seizures so far that have been seen by my mom, but today was the third. My seizure this time was short, and I got that weird feeling, like something really bad was about to happen, and then I feel disconnected and just weird all over, and then I realized I couldn't swallow my food, and then told mom how strange I felt and FINALLY got that bite of soup swallowed after trying maybe thirty times. I sat on the couch for about 2 mintues feeling awful, and then, it was over.
Avatar n tn Although it had lots of side effects, the worst being a lot of weight gain and having to sleep for about 12 hours a day. I don't really get typical aura. Its more like a temporal lobe seizure - in description (although Epilepsy has been discounted) with 'derealization' being my most constant symptom. Further more - since January I have been on a gluten, wheat and dairy free diet. Just this weekend I am now completely off my medication, healthy and happy - after 12 year of living in hell.
Avatar m tn Migraine auras aer usually described as flashing lights sometimes colors, at times in a zig-zag or fortification type pattern, they are described as scintillating or shimmering. The headache usually comes on within an hour of the aura. Some people do have aura without headache, more common as we get older. In this case the clinical history may be typical, but mnay times other disorder have to be excluded such as stroke/TIA/vascular/seizure.
Avatar m tn This said my questions are 1. Could stress lead to seizure activity? 2. Could a body injury lead to seizure activity? 3. Is it possilbe that I hit my head in an accident and not aware of it? I was in a bus crash Dec 21/07 and had bad lower back bruising and rib contusion/bruising as a result. I was unable to take a full breath for 2 weeks after because of the rib pain. I've read that my age it is very uncommon to just start having seizures short of a tumor or some diseases.
Avatar f tn The timing and circumstances make a partial complex the most likely of the seizure types. Loss of consciousness without loss of body control or falling. The description of how he was after the event sounds "post-ictal" or "after-seizure." These often occur in the temporal lobe. An aggressive attempt to find out the cause of this is mandatory!
Avatar m tn It IS very scary to watch a beloved pet go through a seizure, particularly a grand mal seizure. At least with you and your husband both being nurses you kind of know what to expect and how to deal with it, so you are a bit ahead of the game there. When or if your Archie has another seizure, talk to him throughout the whole event in a reassuring voice. He WILL hear you even though it may seem like he doesn't.
Avatar f tn I've been a long-time sufferer of migraine with aura, and for a long time the aura was fairly consistent - visual disturbances and nausea mostly, and a headache. Last year, I moved out to a remote town with a different climate, with my partner after finishing uni. It was a stressful time because I didn't know anyone, didn't have an income (except through my partner), and was applying for a lot of graduate jobs without knowing whether I'd ever actually find one.
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 n tn I'm 38 and get "migraines without a headache". The symptoms minus the actual head hurting are called "auras". Aura refers to the symptoms one experiences before or during the migraine. I experienced migraines as early as I can remember or about the age of 4 years old. They always were the head hurting kind until I got into my 30's. I experiece "retinal migraines" where I am blind in about 80% of my field of vision. This usually goes away in a few hours.
Avatar m tn On the other hand complex partial seizure is preceded by an aura which is usually a feeling of déjà vu, euphoria, fear and depersonalization. Other symptoms of aura include tunnel vision (which can be seen in migraine), and change in size of objects followed by loss of consciousness, memory and automatism like lip smacking, chewing and swallowing. MRI may detect focal brain lesions and EEG is diagnostic. Treatment is mainly by anticonvulsants like Valproate and Phenytoin.

1415174 tn?1453246703 I still get migraine headaches occasionally with aura and sometimes aura without migraine or just migraine. But a couple of times a year I get just the shakes (before they diagnosed me I used to get them more). It always happens when I lay down to try to go to sleep and a lot of times after stress. I will shake all over, and am aware of who is there and I can talk but it is harder.
Avatar f tn This lasts anywhere from 5-10 minutes and does not change in duration with or without taking Ativan. It seems to resolve on its own, and I've learned to just wait it out, though it scares me, because I feel very short of breath and unable to move appropriately or relax. This often happens after I've done more than usual -- took a walk or had a busy day -- though lately, it's been happening out of the blue.
