Avatar f tn “It can manifest as an alteration in mental state, tonic or clonic movements, convulsions, and various other psychic symptoms. It is caused by a temporary abnormal electrical activity of a group of brain cells. The medical syndrome of recurrent, unprovoked seizures is termed epilepsy, but some seizures may occur in people who do not have epilepsy”. Taken from What are the symptoms? Have any of you seen the seizures while it is happening?
Avatar f tn For the second episode, this sounds more seizure-like due to you striking your head repeatedly and the confusion. There are many times of seizure, and not all of them involve losing consciousness. Did you bite your tongue or wet yourself (I realise this would be hard to tell since you were in the shower)? If so, this is strongly associated with epilepsy.
401370 tn?1233328282 If you have very few symptoms of a seizure, but didn't endure the full blown effects (silent seizure perhaps?), can an EMG still detect it? Just wondering, because I have Lupus, and sometimes I will notice SEVERE dizzy spells for like 5 seconds,along with numbness or tingling feeling of my teeth WHILE the dizzy spells are taking place, then a weird jolt down my left arm.. (I had tests performed by my doc and they stated it wasn't heart related). Very strange..
Avatar f tn If I were to explain it, I would say I am having symptoms of MS (multiple sclerosis). I had an MRI and it came back clear. I had an EEG and that came back with no abnormalities. I have no idea when my symptoms started but it got extremely worse. My symptoms are as follows: Headache Dizziness Confusion Fatigue Tremors in hands mostly but do happen in legs, arms, shoulder, and neck.Head shakes too.
Avatar n tn What are the causes and symptoms of anhedonia? Background:I have survived two right temporal lobe brain tumor risections, have a controlled seizure disorder, and am being treated for depression.
Avatar n tn Other common symptoms include sensory loss, and weakness and muscle atrophy in the hands along with and neck and arm pain. The examination usually reveals other myelopathic features (such as your Hoffmann's sign). The clinical course and prognosis of cervical spondylotic myelopathy is not well characterized. Patients can deteriorate progressively or in a step-wise fashion with long periods of stability. Some patients may deteriorate abruptly in association with a minor neck injury.
1810724 tn?1316936524 And when people such as yourself start looking for explanations to their symptoms, MS always comes up. It is very common to happen that way and always causes lot of concern. Now that you have this thought, you need to pursue it with the doctors, get any additional testing done, and in the meantime try not to worry too much about the possibility. IF this is MS, then you will have to learn a whole lot more about it and how it can affect your life.
Avatar f tn 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. I was a nurse before I became disabled with RSD and don't trust medical proffesions.
Avatar n tn What causes someone to have a weak leg after having an epileptic seizure (grand mal) for the first time?
Avatar n tn Other causes of erythema nodosum include other medications such as sulfa drugs (like the antibiotic bactrim and certain hormones), viral or bacterial infections, a condition called sarcoidosis, certain autoimmune/rheumatologic causes, and in many cases idiopathic, simply meaning no known cause.
Avatar n tn some people can be incontinent while seizing, and most seizures, even the less severe type.... causes SOME kind of tremor that would be pretty obvious to a bystander. After a seizure, people report feeling very "out of it", and are often very tired, and sleep for a while...of course, you could have similar symptoms after a panic attack as well. We could guess all day, your best bet is the see the Neuro and make sure everything checks out okay. Let us know what he/she says!
Avatar f tn Ive been smoking weed for ages and i always trip out but the other night i think i had a seizure i couldnt move and i felt like my body was on fire and i saw demons and started crying and could move at all, im so scared i just want to no wtf happened now i keep hearing noises and **** ..i didnt tell the people i was with wat i saw and what i felt cause they would just be like wtf and think i was tripping out or something.
Avatar m tn I have a friend who had a random seizure one morning after she had been vomiting and had diarrhea all night before. She also had not been sleeping well or at all some nights the whole month before. I took her to the emergency room and she had blood work done and a CT scan done both came back just fine. The doctor told her it was probably that she was dehydrated, and had lack of sleep that put too much stress on her brain. He also told her to consult a family doctor.
Avatar n tn I feel that an evaluation by a neurologist to confirm it and differentiate it from other causes like herpes zoster,ramsay hunt syndrome and tumors of brain causing such symptoms by pressing on the nerves. Pls consult a neurologist as soon as possible.Hope it helps.Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn I don't want to sound like a downer here, but TN is a permanent and often progessive illness initially with remissions that gradually can last days to years, with the remissions becoming shorter and less frequent, most causes of TN are unknown (idiopathic). Causes can be many, but for most people TN can be "set off" by some initial trigger in people where TN is "hiding".
Avatar n tn Your friend might want to type in google and then type this into the subject. Or also, type in the symptoms. is an excellent search engine for just about every thing you can think of. I hope that your friend finds out the problem and it is resolved. Let us know how it goes~ Hugs to your friend!
Avatar n tn We are evaluating a variety of symptoms that are continuing to worsen. He has an EEG scheduled this Friday and he actually had a seizure in the Neurologist office this week. His most major symptoms are visual hallucinations, pail, tired, expressionless, difficulty breathing, loss of comprehension, pain in the legs, continuous retching. He also suffers from migraine with aura, but all of the symptoms are rapidly increasing over the past six weeks.

Avatar n tn Symtpomatic cysts typically will cause headaches/migraines and an array of other symptoms depending on the areas of the brain they are touching.
2030686 tn?1351692148 Around the same time as the seizure I started a treatment that causes muscle pain/fatigue and flu like symptoms. I contributed the back pain to the treatment as I was told it would probably get worse. Is it possible that all this time I've been dealing with an injury from the fall. Could this shoulder pain be related as well, even though it's been 3 months? The pain wakes me up at night and makes it hard to stand at times.
Avatar f tn This same thing happened for about a week after he had his first seizure and I was told that this sometimes happens. I find myself watching him nonstop. The seizures he did have only lasted approximately 1 - 2 minutes in which he could not speak, stared at the ceiling, chewing or tasting motion to his mouth.
Avatar f tn The movements cause pain over time and if I hold the muscles, so it limits their movement, then that causes them to hurt worse. I am really tired of this and would like answers. I feel my doctors have given up on me and are just trying to find the right mix of meds to control the symptoms.
Avatar n tn (all mild),Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia,Neurocardiogenic Syncope (near fainting),Irritable Bowel Syndrome (constipation),Raynaud's,Costochondritis (about 11 mos.
880221 tn?1240423082 Could the Benaryl have been one of the causes? Can low blood pressure cause a seizure? Since then I have I have been feeling fine. I have had a few minor headaches when something becomes stressful, and lately due to the heat I think. I haven't been back to work and half of my classes ended early, so I am less stressed. I was told by a neurologist that they were more then likely caused by stress and lack of sleep and that it is more then likely just a one time freak incident.
Avatar m tn Toxaemia. Both can bring seizures. Has your vet considered these potential causes and investigated them?
Avatar n tn Lack of glucose energy to the brain can cause symptoms ranging from headache, mild confusion, and abnormal behavior, to loss of consciousness, seizure, and coma. Severe hypoglycemia can cause death. Symptoms of hypoglycemia occur at different levels of blood glucose in different patients. In most healthy individuals, symptoms of hypoglycemia may not occur until the glucose level drops below 45 mg/dl.
