Seizure in brain

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure in brain


Avatar n tn her husband going to Iraq, being alone in another county, worrying about her family. The also told her she has brain lesions but the side of the brain the lesions are on will not make her have an epiletic seizure. Is there any info you can give me or I can look up? This is her second one and they have diagnose them as Grandma Seziures. I apprieciate any info. Did I mention she has migraine headaches?? Would this be the cause??
Avatar n tn Lyme disease can cross the blood brain barrier and cause disease in the brain. This is documented in humans but not yet in dogs, but I believe it can occur in dogs also. That may or may not be the cause of seizures in your dog. Seizures in dogs can occur secondary to trauma, metabolic disease, lesions or tumors in the brain, from a variety of infectious causes, toxins, and, ideopathic causes. Ideopathic means of unknown cause.
Avatar f tn 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 f tn Namaste, A seizure is the uncontrolled electrical activity in the brain, which may produce a physical convulsion, minor physical signs, thought disturbances, or a combination of symptoms. The type of symptoms and seizures depend on where the abnormal electrical activity takes place in the brain, what its cause is, and such factors as the patient's age and general state of health.
Avatar m tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. From your post it seems that your mother had a stroke. Stroke patients often suffer from seizures due to brain injury. The prognosis is generally not good for stroke patients who suffer from seizures because the occurrence of seizures usually indicates extensive brain injury. It is a good sign that she is breathing on her own.
Avatar n tn A search for possible congenital cause can be sought, through scans of the brain such as an MRI, but a lot of patients end up with no identifiable cause, and hence are treated as a seizure disorder. An EEG would help localize the source of the seizure as well as narrow down the choice of treament. Other causes would include AV malformation, brain tumors, aneurysms, and these may be evaluated by the MRI. Regards.
Avatar m tn Hi, I think there would have been lightheadedness due to some Cardiac cause like arterial supply compromise, some clot in artery supplying brain or any other lesion like vertigo causing such a symptom. After the event the patient would have fallen down. For want of oxygen he would have suffered seizure and simultaneously went into cardio-pulmonary arrest. Later on within minutes he would have succumbed to death. What was the cause of death on post-mortem analysis? Bye.
Avatar m tn Hi, A seizure occurs when there is a sudden change in behavior due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain. There are a wide variety of possible causes which include developmental problems, genetic conditions present at birth, or injuries near the time of birth.
Avatar f tn My Granddaughter had the seizure. I wasn't there,but my son and daughter-in-law were with her. She hasn't had an injury.She does have low blood sugar.I read on this sight that this can cause seizures.We will have the other things you mentioned checked out. Thanks again.
Avatar f tn My grandson just turned 1 back in Dec. His parents and both sets of grandparents have noticed that several times a day he will just stop what he is doing and his eyes will roll up. This will not last for more than maybe 5-10 seconds. No other symptoms. He has been doing this since he was about 10 months old. Could this be a seizure and should we take him to his doctor?
Avatar f tn my 16 yr old son who suffers from autism cerebral palsey ocd servere to profound hearing loss and epilepsy has suffered 3 seizures in 2 weeks, 1 tonic seizure may 2, 1 grand mal may 7 and 1 grand mal may 17. he is now taking 1000mg depakote. his depakote level is 105 (he weighs 98 lbs) since his last seizure on may 17 he now cries for hours before he falls asleep, and wakes during the night crying. i think his meds r affecting him. can u please give me an idea to help him?
Avatar f tn It is over in a split second but happens several times in a row and many times in a day. I almost could call it a hiccup in consciousness or just a severe distraction--feels almost like a falling back out of consciousness or falling asleep for a second. When I'm walking and it happens I find myself surprised I'm still walking after it passes--almost out of body type experience for a split second. It seems to happen more when I'm extremely stressed and tired.
583587 tn?1221443683 My boyfriend had a seizure this past april. it was a granmal seizure. he was sleeping is he started to get tense and then started to mona. i questioned if he was chocking so i got my aunt to help him. he was forming at the mouth and stiff as a board. we took him to the hospital and there they give me medication. this was his only seizure and has still be his only one. the seizure occured right after finals. he is a college student in his third year of engineering school.
Avatar f tn Had an CT scan while I was in the ER. MRI and EEG also got done. 1 week before my seizure episode I experience a metallic taste which I never had before. being tired all the time is also a concern, I was never tired as I am right know before. According to my primary MD I have an abnormal MRI. Part of my MRI result are "Hyperintense signal foci in bilateral periventricular deep white matter and subcortical white matter".
401370 tn?1233328282 Most people who have a seizure disorder experience dozens or more seizures in their lives without serious brain damage. A single seizure does not impair intelligence, but recurring convulsive seizures may eventually do so. A seizure can cause lack of oxygen, yes, thus causing the heart to endure lack of oxygen as well, and if there are underlying problems due to the fact, than yes- there CAN be damage.. I'd definitely get to the ER or a physician for an EMG...
Avatar f tn I was put on it after having one (believed to be generalized focal seizure??) after a brain aneurysm. To be honest, I chose to take my chances off this medication as I was finding it was making me feel really depressed. Discuss it with yr GP and see if theres any alternative? Or maybe u need the dosage adjusting?
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.
Avatar n tn My sister in law who is 25 had a seizure last night. She is in reasonably good health but I suspect that she doesn't always take care of herself. She is some what of a workahaulic. Anyways, I have noticed that sinus infections seem to be one common reason. Is there other types of infections or viruses that can cause this? All her "tests" came back normal. What is it that they test for exactly? I am worried because they just sent her home.
Avatar n tn I remember about 2 years ago he had this same type of seizure but it only lasted 30 seconds and he remained standing. he is normal in all other areas and is not drinking large amounts of water.
Avatar f tn I am 14 years old and have passed out in the shower one time before, but i could still hear things, my vision just got very blurry. This time i was in the shower in the morning and i began to become very dizzy, and normally when this happens i just put my hands on the walls and close my eyes. Once i did this next thing i knew i woke up sitting on my shower floor with my hair tangled on my shower knob, holding my head up.
Avatar n tn It was his first time. And like 20 min after we did he went into the bathroom and was in there for awhile. I started hearing banging noises. But we live in an apartment so I just thought it was someone downstairs. But then it kept going and I started to realize it was coming from our bathroom. I went in there and he was laying on the floor and his hands where all twisted together and he was shaking and wasn't conscious. His eyes were closed.
Avatar n tn I had one seizure about 3 weeks ago,and so far its unexplained...I just had a eeg done today and are waiting for results...could this possibly never happen again? and are there such things as only one seizure and never having another one?? What could some of the causes be?
963651 tn?1247532514 my mother took me to get an eeg and brain scans when younger with no negative results. i fainted in 03 while driving in 04 when pregnant 05 and 06 didn't faint 07 became very weak lightheaded sick to my stomach felt as tho i was going to faint but laid down quickly 08 fainted and just 3 weeks ago fainted...when i faint it comes with really horrible stomach pains sick to stomach feeling dizziness ringing of the ears pounding of the heart hard to breath and lose of conciousness.
Avatar f tn 12th 2001) untill she had her son in dec.5th,2005,but she didnt have the seizure untill he was 6 months old.she is on the depo shot so she doesnt have a period,cause they said that her having babys could be the reason she was having them and loosing something out of her blood.can she have them cause of her hormones off balance or maybe her reds cells r low and not enough oxygens is getting to her brain.
Avatar m tn You need not feel guilty about your efforts to improve Jack's quality of life and reduce any pain. Twitching may be related to seizure activity in the brain or perhaps a muscle or nerve disorder. It is unlikely to be related to simple arthritis of joints or vertebrae, but may be due to muscle weakness. Meloxydyl contains the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug "meloxicam" and is similar to "Metacam" which is how it is marketed in the US.
Avatar f tn It is important to accurately describe the seizure, timing of the day the seizure occurred and also in what setting. Then the question arises if the seizure should be treated – this is answered by looking at the risk and benefits of having a recurrent seizure and the side effects of the antiepileptics. Ultimately, the workup will need to identify the cause of the seizure. Is it from an intracranial lesion, an epileptic syndrome, stress, etc? You will need to have neuroimaging performed (i.e,.
1563022 tn?1296336199 Either way I would get it checked out. They will do a test called an EEG. They will flash lights in ur face and monitor your brain waves. It is thought flashing lights can induce seizures. Hope the info was helpful. Good luck 2 ya and congrats getting clean. Thats WONDERFUL!
Avatar f tn Mainly genetic Other could be called something like basel migraine(forgot the name), has to do with blood vessels in back/base of brain?
Avatar n tn She was admitted and they found she had such a bad sinus infectin that it began to go into her brain and caused a small absess. Her EEG showed seizure spikes and once she was treated w/ strong antibiotics for 4 days her absess was gone on the MRI. Do you think the absess could have caused the seizures? How much of a brain absess in a 9yo child could have left permanent damage or death? Her mom is trying to play it off like the infection was no big deal.
