Common Questions and Answers about Seizure disorders exercise

seizure

Avatar n tn Causes of twitching need to be investigated. Causes of generalized muscle twitches could be dehydration, fatigue, exercise, dietary deficiency, overuse of caffeine, drug abuse of steroids, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spinal muscle atrophy, weak muscles or myopathy. Paraesthesia or tingling is caused by nerve damage or disease.
Avatar f tn Symptoms are usually aggravated with exercise in cardiac disorders. Diabetes mellitus and hypertension can cause these symptoms. Again inadequate sleep, hypoglycemia, anemia and vitamin deficiencies can aggravate your symptoms of lightheadedness. You will need to consult your primary care physician for a proper evaluation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Yes, I would keep pursuing this with an Electrophysiologist (cardiologist that specializes in heart rhythm disorders). Fainting with exercise is not normal. Regular cardiologists often overlook electrical heart problems in young healthy people. These diseases can be overlooked on ECGs unless looked at by a specialist. There are several different heart conditions that should be ruled out on your son. Our family has Long QT Syndrome and my son fainted with exercise before we were diagnosed.
Avatar f tn Having headaches that I cannot easily medicate. I am trying to avoid taking any anti-inflammatories and painkillers. I know that anti-seizure medication can affect the blood platelet levels, however I have not taken my Lamictin for nearly two months (cost and unemployed). I have never had an issue with my medication being : Lamictin (200mg d&n) ; Serlife (100mg n) ; Molipaxin (50mg n) ; Wellbutrin XL 300 (m) and Verahexal SR 240.
Avatar n tn My little one had her first seizure last year. It was not a dramatic seizure...she just stared at me with this look like, "help me mom." CT scan and MRI revealed an aranoid cyst. An EEG,done within 24 hrs of this seizure, confirmed that the seizure came from tissue around the cyst. She has been on medication since and has had a couple of breakthrough seizures (lasting only about a minute), but none as bad as the first (over 20 minutes long).

Avatar m tn The neurologist instead prescribed Elavil, which gave me such horrible side effects (including a seizure after I titrated up on it) that I titrated back down off of it and stopped taking it. My neurologist doesn't like the SSRIs because he feels they increase seizure risk. Not trying to contradict the doctor here, but from what I have read, aren't the tricyclic anti-depressants more notorious for lowering seizure threshold?

1402028 tn?1280861935 Hi, Thank you for your update. Zonisimide is indicated for seizure disorders while Amitriptyline is an antidepressant drug. Some of the side effects of Zonisimide include dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting and trouble sleeping. (http://www.medicinenet.com/zonisamide-oral/article.htm).
1326416 tn?1370930601 From: aquaman444 Im a 56 year old man with high blood pressure and seizure disorder thats under control by taking keppra.In spite of my conditions i exercise 5 times a week--biking--walking--mostly cardio Recently i started getting spasms in my right calf while sleeping--very painful--lasts for 4 or 5 minutes The next day there is bruising in that same area as the muscle spasm(charley horse) The bruising has been lasting now for about 2 months.
Avatar f tn I have never once had a seizure or passed out in my life but I am absolutely petrified of both happening to me, I can't handle it when I see either one of those things happening, what are the odds that it could happen (I realize passing out is a lot more likely) and some advice to calm myself down about this as well, it's really getting to me. I move out in two weeks completely by myself, so that has made my anxiety worse lately, and any advice on that would be wonderful as well! Thank you!
1045176 tn?1253407047 Also, it is possible to lower the chances of getting kidney stones by increasing your intake of water while on the seizure medication, especially while taking a dose of the seizure medication (like, drinking 2 cups of water when you take the seizure medication). Now, if someone who had seizures and responded incredibly well to this specific medication took it, the probably would never get kidney stones.
Avatar m tn Another thing is that it doesn't last very long, for seizure and other neuro disorders, the twitching/convulsions would last longer usually. I know that it doesn't help for someone just to tell you not to worry about it, but when I was your age I would have random twitches for weeks-months and they finally went away. But I really don't think it is a fatal disease like ALS! I hope this helps some! Good luck!
Avatar n tn Its course is varied and symptoms fluctuate. They are exacerbated by exercise. Treatment is symptomatic, involving anti-seizure and immunosuppressive treatments. Ask your Neuro about this.
Avatar n tn Other causes physiologic tremor also affect by stress and lack of sleep and vigorous exercise. Less commonly serious diseases can present with Action/intention tremor, these diseases affect the cerebellum and the brain stem centers that control muscle coordination. Such diseases include Wilsons disease, genetic diseases of the cerebellum, and cerebellar degeneration due to drugs (such as anti-seizure medications and Alcohol) or toxins.
Avatar n tn Since you say that your binging seems to go along with depression, heidi, you might want to get assessed to see if you are clinically depressed and if so treat it with medications and therapy. Depression and eating disorders are very often connected and it is hard to treat one without treating the other.
Avatar f tn They found fluid about 3yrs ago. Has intermittent gait issues. Gets dizzy easily w/ exercise, going up or down stairs, tilting head forward or back. This yrs EEG came back abnormal w/ some seizure activity.. New add on is that he has swelling on the top, rear of his head that swells more when the pain is higher and doctors have zero clue what it is.
Avatar f tn Afterwards I feel tired for a few minutes, kind of like after someone feels after a seizure. What could this be?
Avatar m tn I wondered if there was some neurological reason for me getting repeated cramps, and I also understand my symptoms can be linked to anxiety disorders? I am a healthy 33 year old man, good diet, play sports regularly, drink lots of water, but this has been going on for a month and is not getting any better at the moment. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!!
Avatar n tn ) 5, Clonodine (also used for hypertension) 6. Gabapentin ( also used for seizure disorders) 7.
Avatar n tn Yes you will have wd regardless you also may find out when you get down low that you want to jump because its going to going to get more intense .Try to exercise and eat well . BTW I have withdrawal from it by tapering and I got still got major wd .Not to mention its coming off tram is a double whammy its like coming off a pain med and an ssri antidepressant . Good luck let us know how you are doing.
Avatar m tn I should also mention I have been rather anxious today due to an unrelated cause, although I have not any pre-existing anxiety disorders diagnosed. I have taken a number of different supplements and medications today, all of which I have taken in the past with no problems - but perhaps never all the same time. Perhaps someone could suggest a contraindication between them? Any other suggestions would be welcome also.
Avatar m tn I'm 16 years old a female. I sleep a regular amount at night almost always getting 8 or more hours of sleep. Yet the morning after I always still feel tired. Something I've thought about is that I'm currently on an inhaler to help me get more oxygen to my lungs so maybe lack of oxygen? But my levels have gone up so much it doesn't quite make sense. Also I've had two dreams that make me think of apnea. In both dreams I felt like I couldn't breathe.
Avatar f tn Gabitril's original indication was for seizure disorders at a much higher dose than I listed above, numerous post-marketing studies have been done showing benefit for anxiety, migraine prevention, sleep cycle disorders, and panic attacks. You might want to discuss this with your provider on your next visit. I hope this helps...
612876 tn?1355518095 There are a lot of people in the neurology forum who could really use a migraine tracker, to keep track of their symptoms and also how often they are taking their medicines, as overuse of some migraine medicines is a major concern which can lead to worsening of our condition. 2. SEIZURE TRACKER An epilepsy tracker would be great for seizures too, and particularly for keeping track for late/missed doses of medications as well as sleep, as these are major triggers of seizures.
Avatar f tn starting all over the brain simultaneously--a generalized seizure--or starting in one area, a partial seizure. If the seizure activity involves one small area in the brain--enough to cause odd sensations or loss of motor control, but not broad enough to cause loss of consciousness--these are called simple partial seizures. Complex partial seizures involve enough of the brain to cause odd sensations and loss of consciousness.
Avatar m tn The symptoms could be due to compression of multiple spinal nerves, Vit B12 deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, anemia, vaso-vagal attack, low testosterone, lupus and other autoimmune disorders, heavy metal poisoning, multiple sclerosis, hypothyroidism, diabetes and panic attack. It can also be a type of seizure. If there is a headache then it can be benign intracranial hypertension too.
