Seizure disorders in cats

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure disorders in cats


Avatar m tn Cyclic smell distortions do not happen in your nose. You actually have a sensory seizure disorder, which is caused by a slight chemical imbalance in your brain. Unlike motor seizures, sensory seizures are partial seizures and they don’t manifest in a loss of motor control. Instead they affect how people perceive sounds or images, or in your case, smells. Your seizures are activated when you stimulate the nerves in your nose by laughing or talking.
Avatar f tn to everyone getting the spasms in your head I started getting those when I moved into this house built in 1887, I believe it to be allergies do to molds, also remember cats, etc hive you allegies and do bad things to you. I am moving out because of the illness of molds here, it can kill you.
Avatar n tn Needless to say, doctors are reluctant to perform surgery in the absence of an accepted indication and patients are not interested in surgery when the benefits are explained in the terms. Has your doctor looked for other possible causes e.g. gastroparesis small intestine pathology? Abdominal pain is often a diagnostic dilemna and a multitude of tests may be needed before a diagnosis is made.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
369472 tn?1198749292 My dog, Chica, was diagnosed almost 3 months ago and was already in severe failure. We finally had to help her in the end last Friday. It was a blessing that her misery was finally over. Now, as to what you can do to keep your dog comfy for as long as possible, I want you to print out the following link and really read through the 40 pages. Your dog will need to be on low phosphorus foods, if she'll eat them.
Avatar m tn Do you have any suggestions. I've heard (read) cats w/ seizure disorders tend to have much shorter life-spans? Is there anything else I could be doing for her? Thank you for your time. She is much loved!
Avatar f tn Approx 3 to 4 days after beganingg treatment she began to have twithchs in her arms and now it is in her legs too. Some teacher have reported it being in her face also. This all began Jan 14, 2009. She has had an EEG which is normal and has an appointment with a local neurologist. Does any of this sound fimaliar to you. Of course I have stopped all meds. She did have a fever this weekend and sore throat this week and I think thta the twitching was much worse.
Avatar f tn In July my 15 year female cat started to have seizures. The first night I noticed she said on my lap and started having heavy seizures that were about 2 to 3 minutes apart and lasted for about 30 minutes. The next day I called my vet and she said that those might be epileptic seizures. The reason I still didn't bring her to the vet is that my cat is extremely scared to go to the vet so each time we go it is massive stress for her.
Avatar f tn I have a 19yr old bobtail cat that appears to be having fits or seizure like activities. What could cause this. Also she is a mostly indoor cat. We do have to give her baths every so often because at her age she isn't cleaning herself very good. The last two times I've given her a bath the bath water turns red from something in her fur it isnt from her urine or any kind or sore. I haven't a clue what it could be IT LOOKS LIKE BLOOD!!!
Avatar m tn 4. She could have Cushing's syndrome, which though uncommon can occur in cats. It can also a voracious appetite, and if caused by a pituitary tumor can cause some unusual behaviors. There are other causes also. Daisy really needs to be seen be a vet. Bloodwork and urinalysis, as well as other diagnostic tests should be performed to rule metabolic diseases, diabetes, endocrine disorders and infectious diseases.

Avatar f tn Brain cancers (such as meningioma or lymphoma) can also result in epilepsy but these usually occur in older cats, and are unlikely in a 2-year-old cat. Poisoning is high on my list for a 2-year-old cat. Could your cat have gotten into anything toxic that you are aware of? There are also underlying metabolic diseases (hepatic encephalopathy) that can cause seizures, or heart diseases (syncope) that resemble seizures, but often the cause of the seizure is never discovered.
Avatar f tn No one can hear me, and I feel trapped. Oh, how much I long to run into the creek and jump off a cliff, how much I want to stab myself in the heart. People always have told me that they wanted me to be happy, but how can I be happy if people won't let me do the things I want to do? How can I be happy if I do what makes me happy... but I hurt people even more than I already have? I've been tearing myself apart, thread by thread and I can't put myself back together; no one can.
Avatar n tn I used to have grand mal seizures and in the last few years, I have been having twitching in my face (cheeks) and my eyes, and feel like my eyes are moving back and forth, as well as breathing deeply. These occur only in my sleep. I have not had aspartame since a grand mal seizure in 1985 and I have had an MRI, MRA, video EEG monitoring, a blood workup, and everything is normal. I took Tegretol for a year and was fine, but had to come off of it due to it exacerbating my lupus condition.
2160506 tn?1336939087 Anyway, Epilepsy is a tricky condition, that I do not have to explain to you. Any cat with seizure disorders must be watched and medicated with the utmost care. This surgery and the pros and cons should be weighed by you and your Vet. He knows your kit better than anyone, and will guide you as to what the dangers, if any are. I wish I could answer your questions about the effect of spaying on a kit compromised by a Neurological disorder.

Avatar f tn Long-term “chronic” kidney disease referred to as chronic renal disease is the most common form in dogs and cats. It is usually the result of slow age-related deterioration of the kidneys. Signs of Pet Kidney Disease Initially dogs and cats drink and urinate excessively. The urine produced is dilute so dogs become dehydrated and drink a lot to try to replace the lost fluids. No matter how much they drink; they are unable to maintain normal hydration.
709592 tn?1229153252 I thought it was nothing. Suddenly he was in the hospital for a seizure and things were looking bad. I figured things would be okay... And they did start to get better. The next I'd heard, he relapsed. He was a vegetable, unable to even breathe on his own. The family decided to pull the plug. He died of encephalitis. It started with an ear infection. He was too poor to live on his own... and I know that if he'd have been with us, he would have never gotten that bad. But I never even tried...
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
Avatar n tn It will give you an idea of what goes on in the pet food industry and the repercussions of inferior pet foods.....Seizure disorders are common complaints.....Trust me, the reports are heart breaking, but you need to know......This happens all the time...Mainly to inferior foods purchased at Discount centers & grocery stores......This is an eye opener for those that are unaware.....
544292 tn?1268886268 Theres a lot of conflicting information about seizures on the list. I've never seen anYone have a seizure in tramadol WITHDRAWAL. Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc).
Avatar f tn **It is mainly carried by cats and causes cat-scratch disease, endocarditis, and several other serious diseases in humans.** "Bartonella bacteria are known to be carried by fleas, body lice and ticks. Scientists suspect that ticks are a source of infection in some human cases of bartonellosis. People with tick bites and no known exposure to cats have acquired the disease. People who recall being bitten by ticks have been co-infected with Lyme and Bartonella.
420368 tn?1209075306 We ate some chicken and watch some funny videos of kids laughing or cats thing I know Im in an ambulance being taken to a hospital because I had a seizure. I remember waking up laughing a few times at something I thought was funny. Everyone was gentle with me and I have to admit I got a lot of weird looks and questions thrown at me. The hospital ran the usual test done on determing what kind of seizure it was and if It was lifethreatening or not.

Avatar n tn She even tried to put me on some antipsychotic **** named Olazapine which clearly says, do not give to people with seizure disorders! She was terminated shortly thereafter from that clinic however. Luckily, they knew me well there from detoxing before, and asked if I wanted that and I refused it. They did not force it and said they did not think I needed it anyway. This Doc is still on my list, so to speak.
