Common Questions and Answers about Seizure disorders swimming


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 n tn Another way to put this is, I feel 'disconnected' and as though I'm seeing the world from the bottom of a swimming pool. It makes it very hard to focus and leaves me feeling fatigued and disoriented; everything around also seems to be in sharper focus than normal, again, as though everything were magnified through a 'windowpane' of water. I have had several tests done, which have yielded no answers, including an MRI that resulted in my diagnosis with a severe sinus infection.
Avatar f tn How can he be normal? We already keep him from riding bikes, skateboarding and soon swimming, because of his condition. To top all this off, he is also ADHD!! He cannot take his ADHD med because it will interfere with the epilepsy medicine. The Neurologist is doing another 24 EEG on Monday to see what is going on. Will this show Narcolepsy as well? Any help or advise or a friendly shoulder would be great. I am really a mess with all this.
1223598 tn?1289972059 My allergy made me twitch and seizure every time I took a swig. Back in the day, (I’ve been in sobriety for two months, and hell yess I celebrated, the sober way!) I was capable of getting completely smashed off of only two sips of seven percent cider. I used it as a bragging right of course, because I only drank to get drunk, which means completely immobile and walking like a retard and performing embarrassing stunts in which I am surprised I am still alive to this day.
Avatar f tn my daughter went swimming and hit her heard hard enough to black out. Her first seizure happened After playing a video game, second one happened at home in the morning. A full grand mal seizure. Smaller ones later. In Dec the doctors did and MRI,cat scan and a eeg. They found legions on her brain. Eeg was positive also. Meds helped little and cause mood disorders. Also. Her thyroid was affected. Later came chronic stomach pains and eating problems. Jerks and seizures.
Avatar f tn At 18 I was hospitalize with unexplained neck movement they said to be a seizure (unexplained) which lasted 3 days. At 27 Hospitalized with complicated migraines which numbed the right side of my body and face. About 2 years ago I started falling and broke my foot one of the times (I now own my own walker). When I am tired or week I tend to loose my balance. I noticed one day that my left foot was just flipping in on its own (this happens at night when I am asleep, too).
510168 tn?1211331189 org/wiki/Electroencephalography •to distinguish epileptic seizures from other types of spells, such as psychogenic non-epileptic seizures, syncope (fainting), sub-cortical movement disorders and migraine variants.
Avatar n tn Anti-epileptic drugs help protect the brain from seizure spread. I suspect that you are having more of the seizure episodes (in your sleep) than you know. I would restart the Gabitril (if it worked for you in the past), for now. Most improtantly I would recommend that that you get an EEG (electro-encephalogram, or "brain-wave test"). The initial EEG is often 20 minutes. If this is not revealing I would suggest a 2 hour, sleep deprived EEG with sleep.
Avatar n tn The symptoms of repetative blinking and unresponsiveness that is followed by disorientation and memory loss are common in temporal lobe seizures (but can be found in other seizure disorders as well. I share your doctors concern that possible infection in the spinal fluid due to the fevers and mental status changes (that is why they did the lumbar puncture), and I am glad that it did not show anything abnormal. I would recommend that you get an EEG (electroencephalogram-or 'brainwave' test).
1838963 tn?1318500484 I have been having severe headaches since I was 16. Chronic joint pain at 16 as well. I was EXTREMELY active as a child/teenager. (Swimming, Soccer, Cheerleading, Tennis, Track, Volleyball) Pain became worse after I had a child. Now: My headaches don't seem to be triggered by anything in particular that I can find, I can wake up with a headache in the morning, I can get them while reading, while driving and sometimes they wake me up in the middle of the night. But I do get them every day.
Avatar f tn who's life study had been on seizure disorders. Our son was put into a program under this mans guidance and today is fine.... back tracking a bit. When we were at the hospital, Dee Dee was handling everything. I wanted to ball up and cry, take any pain our son was feeling, take all of the tests they were running on him... he was so innocent and didn't need to be going through this, ya know?
Avatar f tn I have 2 lesions in my right temporal lobe, I have been having some type of seizure, a swimming feeling in on the side of my head, there is no telling when it will happen, most times I get a numbness in my foot that seems to spread up to the base of my skull and on from there. When 911 people get here I usually have low blood pressure, once it was high, by the time I get to ER everything is OK.
Avatar m tn The accounts of marijuana related seizures on the net are so similar to what you experienced, that they appear to be the same thing. If you go on any board for seizure disorders, you'll find variations in the duration, recovery and symptoms in what people experience. Seizures are dangerous, and can kill you. I think you should consider this a warning, and curtail or completely quit using marijuana. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn Last week one occurred while in the middle of a practice set but the other two were not while swimming. When swimming she suddenly feels faint and her muscles feel like they are shutting down. She has made it to the side and gotten out with assistance each time. Her coach says her pupils are huge at the time. We got the cardiologist appt. moved up to last Wed. (10/24) since things seemed to be escalating. Her EKG (done with only 2-3 contact points - is that considered a full EKG?
1255530 tn?1269871219 An array of problems are relatively common among autistic people such as seizure disorders, gastrointestinal issues, mental retardation and mental illness. At this point, no one knows why these conditions are so common among people with autism spectrum disorders. It is possible that these additional conditions are indicators of different kinds of autism, each caused by a slightly different set of circumstances.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have fainted several times per year since I was a very little girl. More seizure like than faint, told not epilepsy, but "just phrone to fainting". I learnt to have high salt diet and reads the signs of when one was coming on, often laying down with feet up seemed to help...but not all the time. Was told I'd grow out of it, which seemd to be the case when started to happen less (ie only once a year)....but during my late 20s I started to get them around every 4-6mths.
1349329 tn?1276988802 Risk of convulsions may also increase in patients with epilepsy, those with a history of seizures, or in patients with a recognized risk for seizure (such as head trauma, metabolic disorders, alcohol and drug withdrawal, CNS infections). In tramadol overdose, naloxone administration may increase the risk of seizure. Suicide Risk •Do not prescribe ULTRAM ER for patients who are suicidal or addiction-prone.
Avatar f tn Did they tell you what was the reason for your high blood pressure? High BP in people of your age group can be due to kidney problems, hormonal disorders, some medications like steroids and oral contraceptives, overconsumption of alcohol. You need to take regular medications to control your BP and do regular monitoring of BP.The underlying cause of your high BP at this age has to be identified. Please wait and see if something comes up in your ECG examination.
1415174 tn?1453246703 I have an abnormal EEG that shows a migraine or seizure pattern and it started in my 20's and took about 8 years to diagnose. I have throwing up and abdominal pain and no headache and it occurred only when I tried to go to sleep at night. Later after being on Klonopin for a few years I had no more stomach problems or pain but then I got the migraine aura and headaches. Anyway, I also have low back pain, initially caused by dog injuring me and it is chronic myofascial pain syndrome.
Avatar m tn Previous to this I could swim 20 lengths of our local swimming pool ,no problem. I could not even lower myself under the water after that without all manner of strange chest activity.( Water pressure) Beer is out of the question and anything fizzy ,spicy etc. I did go to the Doctor and was given Tagamet etc. and no use.
Avatar f tn My daughter is a young adult with autism, global delays and a seizure disorder. The seizure disorder started first then brought on the other issues. We have found out that just the smell of smoke or the odor of some who has recently smoked will bring on a seizure by the next morning! this past weekend after recently having a seizure due to hormones ( she is a female) her breath smelled like she was smoking!
1448748 tn?1312959808 a chiarian that powerlifted? I played tennis at the state level and also did varsity volleyball and state diving and swimming!. I was very athletic and energetic. Then I had my son who is now 3. I had a 2 hour labor starting with my first contraction, crazy! I was going to try a natural child birth with no pain medication and was doing well for the first hour and a half..
Avatar f tn This then lead to seizure activity and the Epilepsy diagnosis and then of course on to my original post with the swollen node behind her ear, the blood work and the ultrasound girl comes home from school sleeps straight away, if she runs around for a bit she pays for it straight after and has to lie down and sleep. It's so hard to work out what is the Epilepsy and could be some other disorder........

1268537 tn?1323633089 It is good though that the CT scan result was fine. However, we really need the EEG result to rule out seizure. With your history of car crash, post traumatic headache is a possibility.It would help also to have imaging tests done on your back since there has been symptoms of back pain as well. Try not to be scared. Hang on. Learn more about atypical migraines and have an open communication with your doctor about your management plan. Take care and do keep us posted.
329994 tn?1301666848 I am currently being tested for all kind of muscle disorders and autoimmune disorders so am pretty sure that soon, I will be told to take one of these medications (I already have CFS). I am just wanting some feedback as to how they affected you and the mg that you take. My primary wanted me to try Savella w/o my test results back yet - waiting on the tests from the rheumatologist, but after reading that other post about Savella, that scares me.
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).
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.
544302 tn?1217520684 Dtw vaccine _ had a slight seizure after first vaccine and cried non stop for hours after.

Hair cut - when callum was about 11 months he had his hair cut for the first time and was terrified, to the point that for some reason his face became blisterd where the hairdresser had sprayed water on him.
Avatar m tn If you want to see the diagnostic criteria for autistic spectrum disorders google DSM IV Autism (or Aspergers). He sounds okay to me. Sometimes it is hard when concerns have been raised, but you just have to wait and see how he develops. The main things to look for are difficulties with speech and communication. Is he at the same level as his peers, is he using language to interact or just to get what he wants/needs.
