Avatar f tn my 6 year old lab had a seizure today. his second. he had an episode in nov. i raced him to the vet on that occasion. they charged me 230, and told me he had a tummy ache. he has some lesions on his forelegs, he won't leave them alone, with the licking! they are much better now, but they seem to be holding some fluid. yes, the vet saw those too. seemed to be not concerned. he is a hunting dog, and being a lab, he will go straight through brush and thorns.
Avatar f tn Some kind of lesions in brain can not be clearly defined with CT hence MRI is done to get to the diagnosis. As far as cause of seizure is concerned, there can be some space occupying lesion in brain pressing upon brain structures, cyst, granuloma, tumor etc. Most of these problems are treatable without surgery. Any history of fever, headache, vomiting?
Avatar n tn Hi a Pitbull pup 9 months old we saved last weekend, who was covered in ticks, possibly with tick fever, was put on Doxydog, yesterday he started getting seizures, no matter what medication, no matter what the vet did, it got worse and worse, this morning 4 times in half an hour, we just put him out of his misery.
Avatar m tn I don't think people who have a seizure remember the seizure, but he definitely had something. Maybe it's a thyroid problem. He needs to be seen, but an ER is the slowest, most expensive and least efficient way to do it.
790165 tn?1268840568 I had no fever today i don't think I didn't check though. But I did go into a photo sensitive seizure almost.
Avatar n tn Febrile convulsions are known to occur even with a mild fever, especially once a child has had a seizure earlier. And the EEG does not show any significant change. It is remarkable that he feels better with sugar. But it remains to be seen if low sugar is the real cause of the convulsions. The seizure any ways takes its time and goes in a few minutes. Please try to avoid any further bouts of fever. There are high chances that he will eventually grow out of the febrile convulsions.
790165 tn?1268840568 But it's weird I'm having more problems with my photo-sensitivity problems when I'm running a fever it happens. I had a seizure today. But I have them without the fever.
Avatar f tn Hi Tima- this has not happened to my kids, however hen my 2 yr old niece was smaller she had a few of them. They ran every test imaginable and never did say what it was. The only link they could come up with was that it happened right after she got her shots, and also when she was teething. I know how scary this must be for you and I am so sorry you had to go through that! How is she today?
Avatar m tn my son is now two years and nine months old. he had a seizure at an age of one and a half year which lasts for ten months. he had his second seizure an year after the first one which also lasts for ten minutes.there was a gap of 1 year between the first two seizures but then he had the third seizure just after one month of the second one .about twenty minutes his body was shaking and his eyes were rolled back. we took him to the hospital but he started normal response after two hours.
Avatar f tn We rushed her to emergency, but it took about ten minutes to get there and another ten for them to treat her symptoms before she stopped. She did not have a fever. She was given ativan and dilantin intravenously at this time. A CT scan returned negative. The next morning she was given 150 mg of dilantin and walked like a drunken sailor for the rest of the day (she weighs 20kg). We are waiting for an EEG and, in the meantime she has been prescribed phenobarbitol. This worries me.
Avatar m tn I have a friend who had a random seizure one morning after she had been vomiting and had diarrhea all night before. She also had not been sleeping well or at all some nights the whole month before. I took her to the emergency room and she had blood work done and a CT scan done both came back just fine. The doctor told her it was probably that she was dehydrated, and had lack of sleep that put too much stress on her brain. He also told her to consult a family doctor.
1618865 tn?1321966955 Suddenly he got fits and was OK also without any medicine. At this moment he is having less fever. He is being given treatment of fever. Is that OK?
Avatar n tn A typical complex partial seizure should not result in a fever. However if a seizure has a significant amount of muscle activity or jerking then a fever can occur. Another thought could be that the seizure was secondary to a febrile illness which was just presenting itself. However, you should have seen signs of this after the seizure. Regarding the change in her seizure, you did not state how recent the VNS was placed.
1573842 tn?1295912170 Recurrent or chronic fever is seen in tuberculosis, SLE, rheumatoid arthritis, and other auto immune disorders, UTI, drug fever, sinusitis, glandular fever, otitis media, IBS, endocarditis, parasitic infestations, fungal infections, lymphomas and other cancers etc. It can even be diabetes and hyperthyroidism. Discuss with your son’s pediatrician. Take care!
Avatar n tn He had a very minor seizure. The next fever was 8 weeks later, very mild and manageable with Motrin and no seizure. Then nothing for 3 months. Then a mild fever, but after a visit with the chiropractor, the fever ended after 30 hours. And now we have been fever and seizure free for 5 months! My son is himself again. He only goes to see the chiropractor once a month just to check up and they never adjust him unless there is a need. He loves to visit "Dr.

If anyone has questions please let me know. I hope this brings encouragment!
Avatar f tn My just turned one year old had a fever seizure last night which freaked out.It doesn't run in me or my husband's families.His eyes rolled back,his teeth were clenched,and he was gasping for air.I thought he had swallowed something,so I started hitting him in the back.
Avatar f tn I don't think so. Sorry. I wish you the best.
Avatar m tn Hello Everyone - Background: I have a 3-4 yr old black lab. She had her first seizure about 5 weeks ago (gran mal) - lasted 2 minutes, and she bounced back perfectly fine. We immediately took her to the ER that night, and her vet the following day. All her tests and blood work came back perfect except she has Valley Fever, found out last week (we live in Arizona).
Avatar n tn had what she thought was a seizure. She went immediately to her GP who referred her to a hospitalwith a pediatric neurology dept. Symptoms: arm flailing, back stiffening and grimacing lasting about 10 seconds. He only had this once. My sister called me back today and informed me that the hospital had done an MRI, blood tests. EEG is scheduled today and they want to do a spinal tap. The baby is not febrile nor has he been. No other symptoms have presented.
Avatar n tn i posted the last question and didnt put im 21 and had a seizure while sleeping my buddy saw me from what he said it was a granmal i think maybe this will help with my last question
14829620 tn?1436796984 When I tried to wake her up she seemed real drowsy, but she was responding. She is not sick and doesnt have a fever so I am curious to know if that is the effect of the medicine or just lack of sleep?
Avatar f tn Thank you for your information. I have had one seizure when I was very small due to fever. But my mother died at 43 from massive stroke so I am really worried. I have a phobia of doctors but I know I will end up having to see one. I am uninsured at this time I will see if I can find a clinic that will see me. I have way too many health problems for my age.
Avatar n tn hi, M Rohit wats r the possibilts that the seizure medicine will be stopped ,if the medicine r stoped can seizure will b e oucer with the fever. if its happen wat is the best treatment , how can seizure's stop permanate.
Avatar n tn Chest xray,2 spinal taps, multiple bld, urine and central line cultures all negative.EEG once the 14 hour seizure stopped showed something abnormal but the neurologist said it wasn't seizure activity but unsure what it was.GYN exam unremarkable.She did develop a UTI few days after admission.She also had a fever fluctuating from 99 to 103 degrees on and off the antibiotics. Liver function tests were normal.
Avatar f tn He checked his blood sugar and he said it was 68 which he explained was very low for a dog that age. He also had a fever of 104. The vet decided to keep him and he told me the prognosis was not good, that he believed that he was poisoned. To make a long story short the vet called me Saturday morning and told me that Chewy had a seizure 15 minutes after I left him at the vet. He also told me that he started him on Phenobarbital 3 ml morning and evening.
Avatar n tn Recently ive had what seems like a seizure upon wakening. At the moment of wakening it seems that im still at a very low level conciousness and as i try to move any of my muscles it triggers a huge sensation of vibration at the centre back of my brain which renders me from moving.It seems the more i try to fight it the stronger the vibrations.Im still very aware of and can hear my surroundings.I relax myself as much as possible and after several minutes in this state i try to pop my eyes open.
