seizure

401370 tn?1233328282 Status epilepticus is a disorder in and of itself and is very serious. People who do not have seizure disorders (there are many kinds, including absence seizures that are nothing like what's described in status ep. With them, a person will appear almost totally normal and most often they are missed by others as well as the person having them because although they've had one, they simply on the outside may have just stopped talking for a moment, or blinked a couple of times.
Avatar m tn They say you can't die from this but that is bull. There is a lot of potential for death or injury. They just don't tell you that. Hang in there and don't give up the fight. IT sounds like your very positive and are a fighter. im glad of that. There is more and more research being done in this area. Five years ago, you could hardly find anything on the INternet about this disorder. Now there are tons of pages.
Avatar f tn However, electrolyte abnormalities secondary to Addison's disease can disrupt heart function and cause arrhythmia's, which could worsen an existing heart condition. Addison’s disease can also cause seizure and coma due to hypoglycemia. Your dog’s last listed glucose level was 29. A glucose level of 29 is extremely low and is considered to be hypoglycemic. Hypoglycemia by itself can cause seizures and coma. Addison’s disease is not the only cause of sudden hypoglycemia, though.
Avatar f tn The second are temporary movement disorders such as akathesia that many anti-depressents can cause and are not of concern and can be treated with side effect pills. There are of course some movement disorders that are permanent but it depends on the medication (look up the medication website). And then people are describing a diagnosed essential tremor. And in some situations the tremor could have a variety of causes.
1223598 tn?1289972059 I started working on my personality disorders in order to combat the demon as well. And that brought me to Step 4. Most of what I am is mainly habit. So I can change the habit too. The most major progress I have made throughout my life so far: My Anti Social Tendencies have come a long way, and that is a positive. I had many personalities, the most evident was, the extreme sociopath one, and the scared one.
Avatar n tn I certainly understand anyone being skeptical that aspartame is the cause of their problems, but there is an easy way to prove this suggestion wrong. Simply eliminate ALL aspartame from your diet for 60 days, and see if your symptoms improve. If you need artificial sweeteners in your life, there are at least four or five others that are available.
Avatar f tn I went to my GP about 4 weeks ago as I had developed a large hump on my back (it seemed quite sudden). I had googled the possibilities and saw that Cushing’s Disease was a possible cause. My father had a very large pituitary tumor that destroyed his pituitary gland, so I was eager to find out what was going on. On December 23rd my GP called me the results of my MRI, I have a 6mm adenoma on the right side of my pituitary gland.
603015 tn?1329866573 All I can contribute is that I was very much like the child you are describing here. I cycled through depression and elation. I was very sensitive. And I did extremely well in school. I started having hallucinations as early as I can remember - only recently looking back and seeing them as hallucinations. I attempted suicide for the first time when I was seven years old. I have a pretty severe case of Bipolar I Disorder.
Avatar n tn Maybe your dreams are not related to sleep apnea. Who knows? There are other sleep disorders than can cause some of the things you relate, but it's almost as if there's an overlap and sounds like bits of more than one. There are realistic dreams when one is falling asleep. There is sleep paralysis. A good sleep doc could sort thru your description and narrow it down. Are you on any meds that could cause this?
Avatar n tn Epilepsy requires medical treatment to control symptoms and to prevent death from a fatal seizure. See a neurologist. A clinical examination and EEG are mandatory. Anxiety, post traumatic stress disorders are other possibilities if the clinical examination and investigations are normal. Seek medical help. Do keep us posted. Best wishes!
Avatar f tn Do you have allergies to any medication? Prednisone prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. It is also used to treat many different conditions such as allergic disorders, skin conditions, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, or breathing disorders.
1545021 tn?1322481085 it was sleep apnea that actually was the cause of death, but it is related to chiari and we all must be mindful and remember to be checked for it as well. Fatigue is a good indication we may have sleep apnea, but waking gasping for breathe is really the one we fear.... Thanks for reminding us all ....we tend to forget with the newbies they r not aware of many of these things.....
585414 tn?1288944902 now I can say that with the Parkinsonism lifting I can (as I did with the Zofran) say that I stepped out of a world of unreality that was psychotic, depressive and filled with obessions of death. But one entirely differently from schizoaffective. But in the meantime I had (note this was not in the journal entries as its confidential) detailed it in methodical case study fashion as I was instructed to do with the glycine. I can't remember it now and I hope not to experience again.
242516 tn?1368227505 - measles, mumps and rubella, or MMR, vaccine and thimerosal-containing vaccines can combine to cause autism; - thimerosal-containing vaccines alone can cause autism; and - MMR vaccine without thimerosal can cause autism. The U.S. Court of Federal Claims Office of Special Masters ruled out the first and third theories since "the evidence was overwhelmingly contrary to the petitioners' contentions" on each issue, according to Special Master George Hastings.
585414 tn?1288944902 It took the lowered level of appetite, libido and feelings of death that were similar to the Parkinsonism described in "Awakenings" away. The ginkgo which I was allowed to increase today to the final dose did as well.
1045176 tn?1253407047 Yeah... that question really depends on what type of medication you are talking about. The side effect question is something that is not a black and white sort of thing. Side effects can sometimes be minor and sometimes be major... but, if a medication works, sometimes, the benefits of taking a medication can outweigh the cons such as even some terrible-side effects. An example... if someone had Type 1 Diabetes...
585414 tn?1288944902 It is a photo of my grandmother in front of the Buddha statues at Bamiyan that were two decades later destroyed by the Taliban. Anyone can agree that that act was horrific and destructive. But where does that urge come from? And to a far lesser extent can we see it in ourselves? And stop it? When my grandparents visited Afghanistan as part of a global tour in 1973 it was a socialist country. If things had remained as is it might have transitioned into a democracy.
Avatar n tn My son has long chain fatty oxidation disorder. A recent chest x-ray showed a "prominent aortic arch". In research that my wife has done, it is suggested that metabolic disorders can cause an enlargement of the heart which would lead to the aortic arch. Does this sound reasonable? What are the long term ramifications of this condition and are there any treatments?
626605 tn?1302524071 Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it. Tramadol can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Do not stop using tramadol suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, hallucinations, trouble sleeping, or breathing problems.

Avatar n tn She occasionally has loss of vision in one eye that was previously affected by the shingles. She had an undiagnosed dizziness/rocking problem when she was 8 or 9. She also has a history of bulimia (to what extent I do not know), trouble at school including loss of friends, and her father's death. She was admitted to the hospital 4-5 weeks ago for severe abdominal pain, at which time they believed she had a twisted fat pad (?) but they did not find it upon surgery.
Avatar n tn There is a higher incidence of accidental death (bath tub drownings, etc), and the change of injury due to seizures. I would highly recommend that you get your seizures under control. Yes stress can make seizure activity worse. However, many think that uncontrolled seizure activity can make the frequency of seizures worse and the ability to control more difficult.
2106890 tn?1333956788 After that incident, I never had another convulsion or seizure. I am not sure if that is important but I just thought I would add it just in case..... thanks!
Avatar n tn ive been to see a second doctor today because i needed to be signed off from work whilst i get over the tramadol withdrawels and he agreed with me that taking an AD to help is the best thing to do and also agreed that tramadol does cause problems. yet my actual doctor says hes not heard of it before! goes to show how different doctors have different opinions!!
