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 Writing and drawing them seems to be the best way to go about that for now. The guy in my avatar is one of my favorite characters. On a sidetrack, if God or a "god" like creature exists, I wonder somtimes if we are like characters in His Story? Interesting thought. Yes it seems like my mind is always busy on some thought process or another, unless I get stressed and in an anxiety attack, then I go into instinct mode.
Avatar n tn He was a nice guy but the situation itself was just too much for me to deal with. While i was up there I stopped taking my medication. With the combination of my anxiety and no meds i started to have severe anxiety attacks at night. I've been back home for two weeks now. I'm still having anxiety attacks and now i'm feeling really depressed. I have tingling in my hands and both my feet. I'm questioning whether i'm having seizures or anxiety.
Avatar f tn my little guy(51,2yrs old) had very large lasting a long time early Saturday morning, unfortunately I wasn't home when it started. I took him to the vets at 7am because he continued to seize. they put him in light weight coma for lack of a better word. He had a very rough time waking up from the drugs, and continues to have small seizures, now that the vet has left for the holiday I cant ask him about this circling he is doing, so far its been 46 minutes.
Avatar n tn also i am having muscle spasms in my upper back and numbness down my arem and into my fingers.was this a seizure or a stroke? i had not had much sleep the day before and some stress. any thought on this?
Avatar f tn Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry that your guy had a seizure plus , right? You must be beside yourself with the stress of it all. Please send me a message if you feel like talking. I'm praying for you both to rise above this new challenge. I guess maybe you take a camera video of your husband with these things starting to happen with his alcoholism, for him to be able to see the reality of his abusing alcohol. I wish I had of had a way to see myself, when I was abusing alcohol.
Avatar f tn There are some that involve staring off and only last a minute or two. Some involved stiffening of the body only. Google seizure types. The only way to tell if it is a true seizures is having an eeg within 24 hours of the seizure, it will show abnormal brain activity. My brothers seizures always show in the right temporal lobe of the brain. His are controlled now with antiseizure meds. If you have seizures pregnancy can make them worse. You need to see a neurologist for proper diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Hi all, this is my first question on this forum. I have a new relationship with a guy who is now 32 years old. We had sex for the first time last week, and it really scared me. When he orgasmed, he started convulsing really violently, lost almost all control of all his muscles. He could barely move (he was kneeing on the floor), though he did try to not hit me by accident or something by turning his torso away from me.
Avatar n tn This is a seizure http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siezure "she gave me a glucose tablet and i felt better" This sounds like what you experienced http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diabetic_coma "I've been fainting A LOT recently, and getting headaches too" Its good you're seeing your doctor tomorrow before things worsen with your well being.
Avatar f tn The yelping before hand might make you wonder if there is something hurting him that could be causing the seizure, something inside him that the approaching seizure triggers causing him pain, or if it just his way of responding to the approaching seizure? In Idiopathic Epilepsy the vocalizations prior to the seizure are said to be involuntary and not painful. http://www.canine-epilepsy-guardian-angels.com/CanineEpil.htm The drinking afterward could possibly be diabetic related.
Avatar f tn Our 4 year old Aussie just had a first seizure this morning. I have dealt with seizures before in another dog, but the aftermath of this is very different and hard. The jerking and then the stiffness lasted about 5 minutes or so, but when he started to come out of it and relax, he jumped up and started barking fiercely at us like he didn't know us. We got the other dogs out of the room in case of agitation or attack. He was backed off and didn't try to attack us, just staring and barking.
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome, Your still in your teens so it's unlikely to be PPMS, the average diagnostic age is in the 40-50 age group because PPMS causes a 'slow' disease progression and it usually takes decades before the accumulative affects become evident. Theoretically for your age you'd still be withing the age range of pediatric MS, even rarer than PPMS but the diagnostic rules of RRMS would still apply....
94007 tn?1224766336 Thats not good. As some of you may remember, he is disabled and on seizure meds which can CAUSE liver damage. How much of that damage comes from the meds its hard to say. He is going to treat in the fall but is switching to another med - Keppra. Is anyone familiar with it? We cant see how he does off the meds because treatment lowers the seizure threshhold. Lots of complications and unanswered questions. That can only be answered by experience - doc is concerned.
Avatar f tn yes depakote is an anti seizure med. there are many anti-seizure meds. could be that one isnt working for her. was one of the charges for selling xanax? jane tell her it is very important that she be honest with you at this point. tell her that nothing will suprise you. going forward you need to know so you will also know how to proceed. she will be calling soon. it is after dinner.
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 n tn My second question is, could the combination of drinking, the abrupt withdrawal from a benzodiazepine, and the Zprexa (which I have read can lower the seizure threshold), have preciptated his seizure. He has never, ever had severe withdrawal symptoms before; it always seemed fairly easy for him to quit. Thank you. B.J.
Avatar n tn Hello. I had a Grand Mal seizure about 4 years ago (I was 25 at the time). Never really went to seek help but I was just wondering if you can get permanent nerve damage from a seizure. The seizure itself was about 2 minutes in length. It was my only one and never had another since then. The doctors believe it was Wellbutrin that caused it. I was extremely weak for about 3 months afterwards and it took me literally 20 minutes to walk upstairs.
Avatar n tn My 7 year old daughter (who will be 8 this month) had her second seizure last month (she had her first when she was almost 5). So far they appear to be fever related, and she will be seeing a neurologist at the end of April. Late last year she told me that she heard me say "I miss you" to her at lunch, and shortly after that, she heard another teacher speak to her that was not at school that day.
486038 tn?1300066967 my little dog died on Christmas Eve and then my Mom and Dad went home a few days later and that night I had my first seizure. I hope if this is a seizure disorder you are dealing with that you are able to get it checked soon. You really shouldn't drive until you know what the heck is going on just in case. I hope you get some answers but you should even let your pcp know the situation because you may need care before you get in to see that new neuro right?
Avatar f tn It sounds like a partial complex seizure, if it is a seizure at all. All the possibilities should be examined from a TIA to a tumor to a seizure. The timing and circumstances make a partial complex the most likely of the seizure types. Loss of consciousness without loss of body control or falling. The description of how he was after the event sounds "post-ictal" or "after-seizure." These often occur in the temporal lobe.
Avatar f tn I am really nervous. Anyone else have a child with a seizure disorder or have a child who's had a seizure? Any advise?
Avatar m tn This said my questions are 1. Could stress lead to seizure activity? 2. Could a body injury lead to seizure activity? 3. Is it possilbe that I hit my head in an accident and not aware of it? I was in a bus crash Dec 21/07 and had bad lower back bruising and rib contusion/bruising as a result. I was unable to take a full breath for 2 weeks after because of the rib pain. I've read that my age it is very uncommon to just start having seizures short of a tumor or some diseases.
Avatar m tn As long as the seizure is very short (less than about a minute), the chances of a permanent post-dicital (means 'after seizure') reaction are very small. The longer the seizure, the worse and more likely the aftermath. Your dog appears to be on the 'better' end of the spectrum, with short seizures and little or no post-dictal reaction. YOU MUST STILL TAKE HER TO THE VET AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Avatar f tn WE believe she had a grand mal seizure and aspirated on vomit because there was fluid in her lungs. She has had 4 seizure episodes in the last 7 months. I feel so guilty we weren't there and we couldn't save her. Our home is still quiet. I can barely sleep. I wake up in the middle of the night because I think I can hear her. I see a black blanket and I think it is her. I can't stop replaying that hour of my life. We released balloons with notes written on them for her to have in heaven.
793973 tn?1237901637 - in his sleep (and yes, he loves me dearly, lol) i dont know if it is a spasm, a seizure. i thought he should go to a neurologist to get it checked, he is not convinced. i think he should especially since he is going into the army now and i know he will be rouging it as much as possible - because he loves it is it the lifestyle of not moving all day and then suddenly lifting very heavy weights/running very fast/rowing very hard for an hour that confuses his muscles?
Avatar n tn My name is Otto and I am almost 20 years old and I am Asian. Im a guy. I am slightly over weight and I do not smoke. The entire thing started when I was heading off to college in the summer of 2007. My mother and I were heading to Washington DC from LA. We were driving across country. one night when we stopped to grab dinner I suddenly experienced difficulty swallowing. Then my head felt really confused and just plain strange. I could not talk properly.
Avatar f tn My 5 year old son just suffered a seizure 2 days ago. His first. It lasted over 30 min. He was given Adavan to stop the seizure. after administered Dilantin and tegretol. after coming out of the seizure he had slight paralasysis on the left side of his mouth. A CAT scan revealed that he had had a stroke. Possibly in infancy due to being 10 weeks premie and APGAR scores were at 0 for 15 min. He also recieved a blood transfusion.(We adopted him from Russia at 11 months.
Avatar m tn Hi, I'm Matt and sometime last year I had a seizure randomly, I don't know what triggered it so I'll post what i was doing when it happened. I'm sitting in my room playing a game on my PC and watching a movie at the same time. It was some sort of horror film and a part were this guy is getting his finger cut off comes on. It made me very squeamish so I got up and went into the kitchen to get a drink.
Avatar f tn Today however something odd happened. I was watching a movie when my little guy starts licking everything under the sun. This is not a normal behaviour. He isn't responding to anything, he doesn't seem to be aware of his surroundings, he's just going around the room licking the floor, furniture and what ever else he can find. I pick him up and his heart is racing a mile a minute.
