seizure

Avatar n tn s seizures are stress related. My father does not have any history of seizure disorders and never had seizures in the past. Additionally, according to my mother, father suffers from some kind of short-term memory lost as well after he had mutiple seizures(about 5 to 6) in the last past 20 days. According to my mother, the doctors had necessary tests done and had ruled out strocks and tumors. My question is, is there such thing as stress induced seizures in a late adulthood?

Avatar f tn Wait, so you have been diagnosed with: PTSD Anxiety Disorder, Bi Polar Schizophrenia "Stress Disorders" and Panic Disorder Have you been diagnosed with Schizo-affective disorder? Sometimes, if bipolar AND schizophrenic, the patient will be diagnosed schizo-affective disorder, because BPD is a mood disorder, while Schizophrenia is an identity disorder- and it has been noted that the two maladies have similar traits as far as dissociation, psychosis, etc.
Avatar m tn I take my meds and still the seizures continue and no doctor has been able to find a cause. They just tell me that i need to manage my stress levels better. After the seizure I am unable to use the left side of my body as well as the right and this last time i had partial paralysis in the left side of my face and issues walking. I have before been paralysed from the waste down for 3 months and many times been forced to wrk with a walker bc my left side is not fully opperational.
3624179 tn?1347735667 One cause of it is depression/anxiety/stress. It is important to realize that production of seizure activity in a nonepileptic event is not intentional. The brain acts through pathways to convert masked stress/anxiety/depression into activity which looks like seizure activity.
Avatar m tn Conversion disorders are disorders in which the patient suffers from symptoms of diseases that he does not actually have. The symptoms of a pseudoseizure are almost same as those of an epileptic seizure, but their origin is psychological, not neurological. One of the characteristic differentiating feature of an epileptic seizure is that there is an abnormal discharge of electricity from the brain during the seizure whereas there is no such electrical discharge during a pseudoseizure.
Avatar f tn ve read that one out of four Asperger diagnosis also suffer with seizure disorders. Are they petit mals or grand mals?
Avatar n tn Make sure you see a neurologist. He specializes in seizure disorders.
Avatar n tn While both disorders involve electrical changes within the brain, diagnosis are not the same. Seizure disorders are often caused by the infection, brain tumor and other organic causes while migraine have no specific cause. People with migraine have an increased incidence of seizure disorders or epilepsy and vice versa. Also, symptoms of particular types of seizure may be the same also as symptoms during a migraine aura. Hope this helps. Take care and best regards.
Avatar f tn Honestly I joined this group to try to find someone with some similar problems as mine. I have been diagnosed with a seizure disorder that affects my ability to speak and reason and leaves me severely disoriented. In minutes I can turn from a normal person to someone who appears mentally retarded. The affects of the so called seizure can last from hours to days and when it wears off I am fine again. It has been happening so frequently it's disrupting my life and my work.
Avatar n tn 16:54: Dear Doctor The diagnosis of epilepsy and seizure disorder are not mutually exclusive. True seizure events are abnormal hypersynchronous firing of cortical neurons. These events are induced by extracellualr IPSPs or EPSPs. These firings would be detected on a brain wave test called EEG. There is a type of seizure disorder that is not epileptic. This type is called pseudoseizures. The seizure event in this case is not induce by abnormal brain hypersynchrony of cortical neurons.
Avatar n tn is it uncommon for a child of her age to develop a seizure disorder and are there specific types of seizure disorders that pop up at her age? I am very worried and a bit short on answers right now. Thanks for any general info you can provide.
Avatar f tn then 5 months ago, my husband died. So...lots of stress. I know the death of my husband started it, the depression is worse around the times I have seizures. Could the depression also be a component of or compounded by the seizures? It is getting worse with the increase in seizure rather than better with time as I would expect. What can I do to stop it? I already tried a grief counselor with no success.
Avatar f tn Felt messed up all day, jerks throughout, resulting in seizure by around 8pm, woke up on the floor under my desk. likely brought on by being late with medicine and poor sleeping habits and perhaps stress due arguments with Paulo for a couple days. Major headached afterwards turning into migraine by Thursday if not earler. HATE THESE THINGS AT MY WITS END DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, I HATE MIGRAINES MORE THAN ANYTHING. MY GOD, WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ME? WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE IT STOP???
Avatar n tn The tongue biting could be due to seizure activity, only an EEG (electroencephalogram) can help confirm this. This is done under the guidance of a neurologist. So, please consult your primary care physician, he may refer you to a neurologist if needed. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar f tn Only your neurologist(most people with seizure disorders have one, if you see another doctor for them, that is who I would talk to) would be able to make the correct decision regarding medication and your seizures. You need to make sure that you are okay and healthy before you worry about carrying a baby and then worrying about their health.
Avatar n tn One possibilitty is a seizure disorder. However, your symptoms might be more likely related to syncope which is temporary loss of consciousness and posture, often described as "fainting" or "passing out." and is usually related to transient insufficient blood flow to the brain. These episodes may be caused by pain, emotional stress, dehydration, pooling of blood in the legs due to sudden changes in body position, overheating, exhaustion or as a side-effect of some drugs.

1584019 tn?1309875083 This past weekend Myah fell down stairs after seizure and has has increased seizures in general.

Avatar n tn Hello, My daughter has febrile seizures. She used to have complex clonic-tonic seizures that would literally turn her whole body blue at even a small spike in fever. Phenobarb did the trick for about two years. Her neuro has discontinued it now in hopes that she has outgrown the seizures. Now it is just a "wait and see" game. we hope that she will not develop anything else, as seizure disorders run on her dad's side of the family.
327385 tn?1378360731 This leads to increased brain’s electrical activity which increases the firing of the neurons and triggers a seizure in someone who is prone for seizures. Stress can indirectly also affect patients with seizure. It causes an increase in cortisol levels which influences seizure activity. Have you been investigated for your seizures? What medicines have you been taking? If you have been taking antiepileptic regularly then seizures should be controlled.
