Seizure first symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure first symptoms


Avatar n tn Hi, How are you feeling now? Did you have any other symptoms after the first event? If during the seizure, if you have suffered any trauma to nerve supplying the lower limb it can cause weak leg. If during the seizure, you have suffered trauma to part of brain having motor neurons of lower leg, then it can cause weakness. How are the reflexes in that leg? Has it been evaluated by a neurologist? Are you been treated by neurologist? If yes, then what he has to say about this?
Avatar f tn I am 28 years old and I had a seizure for the first time and lost consciousness and stopped breathing. This has never happened to me before and I am terrified. The emergency room Doctor gave me no explination and referred me to a neurologist. I have made the appointment but I was trying to get some information on why this happened to me and what are the chances of it happening again?
Avatar f tn I had all of these symptoms after my first seizure when I was 20, the weakness, tiredness, tingling are all normal, I am afraid. The metallic taste is also normal before you have an episode. As for your MRI scan being abnormal to be honest it will be, your brain has suffered a big shock. As for the result ask your doctor, or even type it in to the internet search box, not only does it explain it but also puts it in normal terms (for us people that aren't doctors). Hope this helps slightly .
Avatar f tn Hi, For the first episode, it could have been a seizure or you could have fainted since showering involves standing in a hot environment for a long period of time. For the second episode, this sounds more seizure-like due to you striking your head repeatedly and the confusion. There are many times of seizure, and not all of them involve losing consciousness. Did you bite your tongue or wet yourself (I realise this would be hard to tell since you were in the shower)?
401370 tn?1233328282 If you have very few symptoms of a seizure, but didn't endure the full blown effects (silent seizure perhaps?), can an EMG still detect it? Just wondering, because I have Lupus, and sometimes I will notice SEVERE dizzy spells for like 5 seconds,along with numbness or tingling feeling of my teeth WHILE the dizzy spells are taking place, then a weird jolt down my left arm.. (I had tests performed by my doc and they stated it wasn't heart related). Very strange..
1653487 tn?1303527762 I just recently had my first (that I am aware of) seizure at 35 years of age... My husband witnessed the episode but I have no memory of it happening. This happened in my sleep this past Sunday night (March 27th)... After two days in the hospital and the plethora of tests, the MRI came back normal but the EEG showed abnormalities in the back right lobe of my brain. I was placed on an anti-seizure medication - Keppra 1000mg and told that I can not drive for at least 6 months...
Avatar f tn my first symptoms were stroke like symptoms. I could not walk the next day. it was hard to lift my legs.
Avatar m tn It is possible that the previous episodes may have been a seizure not picked up in EEG. The symptoms are a bit unusual. The stiffening of the body does hint strongly towards a seizure. Let us wait for this EEG report. I guess you will need some anti seizure medication.
Avatar n tn They did figure out when I had my seizure in 1996 that I was on placwenell (misspelled) that might have caused my seizure to happen.
Avatar m tn This time, I woke up the second day almost positive that I had some type of seizure either the first day I was detoxing or that night. When I woke up my vision seemed changed- it was blurry and I was blinking constantly in order to maintain clear vision. I also can't help but blank stare constantly. Two days later this hadn't changed. It is a constant problem, not something that goes in and out. How long should this last and is there a reason it did or anything I can do to help it?
Avatar n tn He is otherwise healthy with no family history of the symptoms discussed. He also has no history of head trauma. Any guesses?

Avatar n tn What was the result of the MRI ? Are there other symptoms present with the change of seizure? If another seizure attacks, just make sure she has somebody with her all the time and she doesn't hurt herself or hit her head with something hard. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn This morning I awoke with nauesa, which went away after an hour or so and it was replaced with a headache and blurred vision. These were the same symptoms that I had in the hospital shortly after the seizure. All symptoms are gone, other than the blurry vision, which seems worse in my left eye. Should I be concerned about these symptoms? Is it possible that I had another seizure in my sleep and awoke with the normal symptoms?
Avatar n tn and been on Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Cymbalta and now back to Wellbutrin 450 mg. daily. 5 yrs. ago I had my first panic attack, taking .5 mg. Xanax as needed. Didn't have them that often. I work in a very stressfull/hostile workplace (School) it has become this way over a period of about 5 yrs. I am a very passive person and sometimes I feel like the doormat.
Avatar n tn It was abnormal, but I had both children with me when it was discussed so I didn't get to ask too many questions and the doctor doesn't want to see me for 3 months. First, is seizure disorder and epilepsy the same thing? My neurologist is in the process of raising the dose of Topamax to 200 mg, and gave me the precautions to take for seizure disorders, and said see ya in 3 months. And here's the Impression paragraph: This is an abnormal EEG monitoring.
Avatar f tn I am 20 years old. About two years ago I had a seizure in one of my classes at school. It happened again recently. The first time I didnt have anything to eat before hand and it came on suddenly. This past time, I had enough sleep and had eaten breakfast. I was sitting in a chair when I got lightheaded and nauseous. I thought I was going to throw up but quickly realized that I was going to pass out. My dad was there and said I was out for about two minutes and my body was stiff and shaking.
Avatar n tn 00 a.m. every night. Are these symptoms that will help me identify that a seizure might be coming on? Yesterday after the night of the last seizure, I felt completely back to normal. I was tired but was no longer disoriented, I was sleeping and my mood was stabilized. I need help understanding all of this. For those who have had seizures, you understand how terrifying it is to have one and to figure out why????? Why did the Lamictal not work??? Thanks and I look forward to your response.
220917 tn?1309788081 No one has ever seen me have a seizure. I take Topamax, which is an anti-seizure medication, for my migraines, daily. I know I skipped a dose this week. I've done that a kajillion times. I usually go to bed VERY early. 9:00 -10-30 range, because of my fatigue, and I usually nap briefly during the day. I did take my nap, but last night, I was just sick of being sick, and stayed up WAY too late. 1:00. I really was overly tired.
Avatar m tn I looked up the drug and found it was an anti epileptic drug. This was the first seizure she’s ever had with no family history either and she hasn’t had one since (it’s been about a week.) My concern is that this is a highly toxic drug and I wonder if after just one seizure she should be taking it. I told her to get a second opinion. What do you recommend?
Avatar n tn My thoughts are possibly Simple Partial Seizures leading into a Complex Partial Seizure. However; she still has a lot of symptoms of Psychogenic Seizures and somewhat of a Secondary Generalized Seizure. The biggest factor that throws me off is the duration of these “attacks.” Please, what are your thoughts or opinions on this case? If you have any more questions of detail, please let me know, Thank You.
Avatar n tn He had a blood sugar of 73 when the paramedics tested him, but they feel that had risen due to the seizure activity. They felt that his blood sugar had been much lower. He was put on seizure watch for 1 week to make sure it was not a different condition. He hasn't had one since. It is a very scary experience. He does not remember the seizure at all.
207091 tn?1337713093 In the past month or so, after she furballs, which she has always done fairly regularly, she seems almost paralyzed. The first 2 times it happened, it lasted less than 30 seconds, and me petting her seemed to bring her out of it. Today was the third time, and it scared me terribly. She threw up, and immediately went into the paralysis, and it lasted around 30 minutes. I was petting her, and held her (which she normally does NOT tolerate and didn't even move today), and nothing worked.
Avatar m tn Last monday, my nine year old shih tzu, Stitch, had a seizure. First time ever. We took him to the local vet, they did blood work and it only showed that his liver enzymes were higher than normal. Other than that, nothing else showed up. The vet put him on prednisone, a liver pill and an antibiotic, just in case some kind of infection was going on. The first day he didnt eat much, but has steadily eat better and drank.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone! This may sound like an odd question, but I really am trying to figure out what to do. I have an endo. appt. in a couple days, but I want your opinion on what this could be. Now, the reason I'm not posting this in the neuro section is because I have thyroid "issues". My question is, could hypothyroidism cause a seizure-like episode such as described below? Also, is it worth getting an MRI because of the "episode"?
Avatar m tn I hope your feeling better. I'm sure this scared you and I know when I had my first seizure I was scared out of my mind. Came out of the blue at 39 years old. I hope your now having them. I would definately get a check up if you have not had one recently and discuss this with your doctor.
Avatar f tn I was taken to ER and they ran some blood tests, and CT scan that was normal It was my very first seizure at age 25. I have no family history of seizure disorders. I have been a vegetarian all my life. I do have is Vitamin B12 deficiency, severe sleep disturbance, life full of stress and lack of rest. Before this seizure, I had been noticing that I was having sx. of orthostatic hypotension.
