Common Questions and Answers about Seizure disorders houston


Avatar n tn I am a 43 healthy female. I had a gran mal seizure in 2004 where I fell backwards stiff as a board and cracked my head open on concrete. I lost all consciousness and could not tell where I was when I came to. I do not remember falling. God blessed me that day as I was about to drive my husband and 2 children home from vacation from San Antonio to Houston. I could have killed them and another driver.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if this procedure you are asking about is for seizure disorders or what it might treat?
Avatar n tn “Compared to the patients without migraine (n = 49), the patients with comorbid migraine (n = 53) had a higher frequency of bipolar II disorder (43% vs. 10%), a lower frequency of bipolar I disorder (11% vs. 33%), an approximately equal frequency of unipolar depressive disorder (45% vs. 57%) and a higher frequency of affective temperaments (45% vs. 22%). The migraine patients also had a greater number of anxiety disorders (3.0 vs. 1.9) and a higher frequency of panic disorder and agoraphobia.
Avatar n tn I do know people with seizure disorders can take the ms and the other ones,,but I' don't know if it lowers the threshold any..I can say for sure that ultram does....even if you are not prone to seizures, ultram can quickly cause them..I have to get to work but I just wanted to jump n and say hi and welcome....
Avatar f tn The nausea followed by hallucinations and lip smacking is consistent with a seizure called a complex partial seizure. Occasionally these seizures can develop into grand mals. The most common cause for seizures in his age group are old strokes (may have been very tiny and not ntoiced before). The second most common group is the idiopathic (we don't know what is causing it) group. Other causes such as tumors, and vascular malformations also need to be evaluated.
Avatar n tn Another disorder which can cause a loss of vision and a passing out sensation is a seizure. Although as you describe it, it does not sound like a seizure. You should discuss these possibilities with your neurologist. Good luck.
Avatar f tn My head felt like it was trembling inside I could not hold a pen or a fork. I was like that friday too. I kept telling the nurses I was afraid of a seizure but they said I had no orders for anything other than subutex and I had to talk to the Dr. Well, the Dr. only came every morning for about an hour and I did not get to see him Thurs or Fri. I thought this place is going to kill me and I can't believe they are not going to taper me. Then on Saturday FINALLY the doctor!! Yeah!!
1139187 tn?1355710247 Xanax works much faster and doesn't stay in the body nearly as long. Clonazepam is also used for seizure disorders as well as anxiety/panice, whereas xanax is used for anxiety and panic. Careful Bruce.
748543 tn?1463449675 People who have a poorly aligned bite or missing teeth can have related problems, such as frequent headaches or Sleep disorders, because their Jaw muscles must work harder to bring the teeth together, straining the surrounding muscles." a simple Google search for TMD would have provided this author with a wealth of informative sources regarding her subject. I, as most responsible medical professionals, believe in using the most conservative successful form of treatment.
Avatar f tn After that, Dad and I went to an ENT doctor in Houston, but they only did one scan and found nothing. A nurse told me the only allergy doctors that check for aspergillus are Texas Childrens and UTMB. If they find something hopefully, the "power trippers" in my family will allow Dad to go. From doing research, I've found that fungus can get into the brain through the sphenoid sinus and cause dementia. Will Amphotercin B cross the blood brain barrier?
Avatar f tn Hello sorry it took me so long to write back. My appointment in Houston was well okay. I got a nerve test done where they put needles into your muscle and check your nerves by I guess slightly letting electrical shocks go into them. Idk but it was a little painful. It came back normal. I have been waiting a month to get the mris done that the doc prescribed because of insurance authorization.
Avatar n tn We have been to doctors and hospitals and still have no answer. He has also had febrile seizure with almost every episode. He has had MRI, MRA, CT Scan, many urine tests, ebv/mono, spinal tap and lots of blood work. All has come back clean, with the exception of 2 ear infections. I have been researching everything from PFAPA to cat scratch fever to parasites. If anyone who has been through this has any answers please post!
Avatar f tn Low cortisol levels have been observed in patients with different stress-related disorders such as Panic/Anxiety Disorders, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Low cortisol leads to enhanced stress sensitivity, pain and fatigue. I also have primary hypothyroidism, which I suspected all along, but it took a full review of my medical charts to see the escalating trend in my TSH levels.
387660 tn?1242600342 But this time seemed worse, especially with my kids in the car. I am very healthy, white, 30yrs old, no sleep disorders, exercise, etc.. I am not on any medications. I just dont know what causes this. I noticed a problem when I would fall asleep during lectures in high school then college. I started falling asleep during college when I would drive 2 1/2 hours back and forth to school. Now I can fall asleep within 20 minutes in regular traffic. It doesnt make sense. I know its getting worse.
975514 tn?1325001538 I also have sciatica and scoliosis as well as arthritis and diverticulitis, chronic bronchial-asthma, carpal tunnel, tmj, spurs in both of my feet, a torn rotator cuff probably caused by helping my son through a seizure or two. I have gotten to the point where I can't walk without help when I first wake up and try to get out of bed. I am only 31 years old and have been using a cane occasionally for about 3 years now.
551343 tn?1506834118 This test can be used for diagnostic purposes but is widely been used in research for many disorders so basically I'm being slotted in when they can. Neuro's latest thoughts are leber's hereditary optic neuropathy plus syndrome. This is because of my dad's history and the plus syndrome is like an ms syndrome. Trouble is I know leber's is a mitochondrial disorder so it has be passed down from your mother not your father. My swallowing problems have worsened over the past couple of years.
Avatar f tn My daughter takes it for complicated migraines that lead to seizures and topomax is an anti seizure drug. Her neurologist never mentioned hair loss. I even called to verify. She said that hair loss isn't mentioned. but that everyone's system is different. If extreme weight is involved then that is the culprit not the drug. The drug only helps kill the appetite. YOu still need some will. The weight loss you are taking about is fantastic.
Avatar n tn Right now my 14 year old daughter is being tested for everything from Lupus to Connective Tissue Disorders to Mono. She develops hives when she gets cold. This can be in a restaurant, our finished basement, the swimming pool (when first opened in the season), running her hands in cold water, etc. We have been told that it could be raynauds disease--everything I've read doesn't point to that, no white discoloration, she just goes straight into the hives and once warm they go away?????
Avatar n tn A few notes for those suffering from esophogeal disorders. I was diagnosed with diffuse esophogeal spasm about 6 years ago. It began suddenly one night -- a heart attack like event. The family doctor and GI specialist ran many tests, but I stumped them all for about 2 years. An expert at a major research hospital finally diagnosed it after 2 days of testing. The issue was compounded by rapid stomach emptying.
147426 tn?1317269232 Many of you remember when I was told I had a seizure disorder by the first neuro? And the second? All without an EEG to confirm this. I got the letter the neuro sent to my pcp and he told him he suspected a conversion disorder with myoclonic episodes in my legs and arms. I was SO angry about this, but since that time I was dx'd with the Still's Disease and have been explained that the spasticity and pain with it is sometimes the first symptom of the disease and then the arthritis later.
Avatar n tn maybe your dehydrated.... * Metabolic disorders * Low levels of B=6 * Certain types of neuropathy Sometimes its just gas, especially if you are getting sharp pains in the top of your back, i never thought gas would go there but it does, try a Simethecone tablet, see if it goes away. You can get sharp pains in the bowel if your are constipated. Or if you have been in one position for a long time, then get relaxed, it can happen then.
Avatar f tn Does anyone have a doctor or specialist that really believes that the feelings are real and not just anxiety? I live in Houston,Texas but I am willing to go were ever it takes to find the right doctor that knows how to treat this medical issue. ( its something more than just anxiety ) it has to be: I have heard it and I have seen it on the B/P machine.
Avatar n tn OK I found this forum because I think I am suffering from what you all are suffering while you sleep. This does not happen to me every night but maybe a few times through out the month. I would go to sleep and of course like everyone else dream and than when I want to awake I I feel like I can't move and my eyes can't open. I scream in terror WAKE ME UP hoping my husband can hear me but obviously not it's just in my mind that I am actually screaming.
