Common Questions and Answers about Seizure causes more


Avatar n tn I was hit by a car when I was 11. This could be a seizure. Just passing out or becoming incoherent can also be a sign of a seizure. If she starts to sleep a lot you may want to see a neurologist, this could be severe.. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been reading and it seems that seizures are more common than I realized. My sister in law who is 25 had a seizure last night. She is in reasonably good health but I suspect that she doesn't always take care of herself. She is some what of a workahaulic. Anyways, I have noticed that sinus infections seem to be one common reason. Is there other types of infections or viruses that can cause this? All her "tests" came back normal. What is it that they test for exactly?
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 Electrical discharges occur throughout the brain. The discharges produce a generalized seizure lasting more than 15 minutes or recurring seizures between which the person does not completely regain consciousness. The person has convulsions with intense muscle contractions and cannot breathe adequately. Without rapid treatment, the heart and brain can become overtaxed and permanently damaged, and the person may die. Seizures may have serious consequences.
Avatar n tn My son has not been well for seveal weeks now and the doctor feels he has Erythema Nodosum. The doc believes it may be a reaction to his seizure med, valproic acid. My son has been on Valproic acid for 9 years now.. Is it possible it is from the valproic? Also has low platelets and has suffered from it for a long while, can this be from the med.?
Avatar n tn I had my first grand mal seizure a few months ago. A couple of days ago, I had a a second grand mal seizure. The first lasted around 4-5 minutes and the second lasted for around 2-3 minutes. I had an EEG, CT Scan, blood work, and a holter monitor for the heart, and all of my results came back normal. My neurological exam was also normal. I had the aforementioned tests 1-2 days after my first grand mal episode. I had several aura episodes, and I had many panic/anxiety attacks.
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 think i flicker my eyes abnormally more at times though this is not noticeable. I almost always feel a little heavyness in my eyes . I do feel that I may turn into a MAD MAN any time ( It makes me laugh at myself & makes me extremely scared also as I have a lovely wife & a 3 old son to take care of ) These attacks are making me more anxious as a person. I am 32 year old man, a professional in the Construction Indusrty.

Avatar f tn I have juvenile diabetes and my blood sugar levels were low both times I had seizures. Is it possible that these were diabetic seizures? What causes a diabetic seizure and how do I know which type of seizure I had? And this is a little bit off topic, but I want to know if I can safely have 1 drink. I haven't had one in 6 months because I don't know if I should.
Avatar n tn Hello, My 2yr (7lbs) chihuahua mix had a seizure. I've think she may have had a simple focal seizure (per websites visited). Molly didn't fall over and seize nor did she expel urine or drool. She was upright with open eyes. My questions: What are the causes? (couldn't get a clear understanding from the websites visited) Can the seizures cause damage to her body? When should I have seen by the vet?
Avatar m tn It is more likely that you have no one specific seizure trigger, which is the case for most seizure disorders. The sleep study should be very revealing. Also useful is a 72-hour ambulatory EEG, or a 24-hour video EEG (performed in a hospital setting). I hope you can find out what is going on and begin effective treatment soon.
5700140 tn?1372655364 Hello, Lamictal causes serious withdrawal reactions. These withdrawal effects are more severe compared to side effects. The common symptoms seen with withdrawal are moodiness, lethargy, headaches, tingling, suicidal tendencies etc.Lamictral should not be stopped abruptly it should be done slowly. It is suggested to report these symptoms to your doctor. If the symptoms are severe or persistent you may need emergency medical help. Keep me posted. Take care and regards!
1810724 tn?1316936524 So I have been diagnosed with a Seizure disorder almost a year ago. Already been through two different seizure medications and now taking the third. I have tried Depakote ER no help (7 months), Topamax (3 months) and now Gabapentin (1 Week) to control my episodes. Tightness in the chest area with warm sensation that would radiate through both sides left more than right with numbness and tingling feeling.
Avatar f tn This causes either headaches or seixures around puberty, and the other appears on or about the time of childbirth. I have tried to contact my previous doctor, but cannot locate. Can you please give me a name for this condition? I now have daughters of my own, and I want to discuss it with their pediatrician. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Hi there. Craniosynostosis is a congenital defect that causes one or more sutures on a baby’s head to close earlier than normal. Sutures separate each individual skull bone and early closing leads to an abnormally shaped head along with increased intracranial pressure, seizures and possible developmental delay.
Avatar n tn Hi SamScott, It is unusual that seizure causes myelopathy. Seizures typically originate from the brain. Myelopathy is problem with your spinal cord. In your case, it is the neck part of the spinal cord. Cervical spondylotic myelopathy is the most common cause of myelopathy (spinal cord dysfunction) in adults over 55 years, causing progressive disability and impairing quality of life.
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 n tn Anything that causes physical and mental stress can lower your threshold for seizure such as infection, sleep deprivation, and dehydration as well as neurological problems such as bleeding around the prior stroke area or syndromes that would cause strokes in younger women like vasculitis. She should have had a proper workup at the time of the stroke, but perhaps a CT scan to make sure everything is ok now would be in order or an EEG.
Avatar f tn Postictal (following seizure) changes can just be part of the effects of the seizure, but these typically last a few hours or at most days. Children with epilepsy can have behavioral changes as a result of their reaction to the diagnosis if they understand it. In addition, patients with epilepsy are at higher risk of developing depression, and in children, this depression may be expressed as behavioral changes and agitation rather than the more typical symptoms of depression.
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 Two days ago my 4 yr old female housecat collapsed to the floor, vomited, and seemed to be having some sort of seizure. There was no muscle spasms or twitching but her eyes were fixed and dilated and she was unresponsive to sound and touch for perhaps one minute. Then she started coming around and responding but was not fully coherent.
Avatar n tn I didn't think much of it. This had been the first episode since a fainting in church in 2nd grade(8 yrs. old). He then fainted again 10 days later and I was not present in church. Again, he knew he felt sick and informed his teacher. He passed out and They said he did not seem to shake however his eyes flutted and rolled around a little. He was able to walk out shortly after with the help of a couple of teachers. I was told it was hot in church.
1285110 tn?1420150978 He had a congenital heart problem which resulted in 3 holes and a ruptured valve being repaired when he was 5 months old - the mitral valve has aupper end of moderate eccentric regurge leak and at some point will need a replacement. Last year he had a grand mal seizure - with no apparent cause - he was put on to phenytoin for 6 months but as it stayed below theraputic levels and he had no sign of further seizures he was weened off it.
Avatar m tn The fact that you had seizures as a child may actually mean that you have epilepsy because to get a diagnosis of epilepsy you need to have more than one seizure. It could also be though that the seizure was an isolated event and that it will never happen again. About 4% of people have a seizure sometime in there life.
2132141 tn?1335681674 But they are often more intense, causing the abnormal muscle contraction described in the above link, including forced turning of the head, affecting one side of the body (one eye twitching) and my neck muscles tense up. Thankfully, I don't notice any other symptoms other than muscle contractions and tingling sensations, and the events last only 2-5 seconds. Another trigger can be changes in temperature.
Avatar f tn Try not to get too worried about any specific condition at this stage, once you've had your neurological assessment you'll have a much better idea if anything is neurologically abnormal or not, if your clinical signs are normal (which they'll more likely be if your MRI didn't find anything) it's more likely something other than a neurological condition and all help your dr's work out whats going on, the working it out can take a long time and a lot of tests, so try to look after your mental h
Avatar n tn I am a 19 year old female who recently experience my first seizure. I have never had seizures before, though I do have basilar migraines (1 yr). About 2 days ago, I felt really weird and decided to sit down on some steps. THe next thing I knew, I had four cops around me, and two were holding me down. I thought they were trying to arrest me, so I tried to get up, but they wouldn't let me up.
