8488481 tn?1410329809 is it at all possible the baby can have a seizure in the womb... should I tell my doctor at my next appointment ??? Super freaked out ! HELP ?
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 Our child was diagnosed with ADHD, TS, and Seizure Disorder. Our child does have facial twitching, shoulder shrugs, and various other things, as well as ADD symptoms like daydreaming in class, not completing assignments, being forgetful, etc. I could list them all but I'm sure that's really necessary. They did an EEG and blood work and urine tests to rule out other things such as lead and copper and such.
Avatar n tn She did not have a temperature and was not sick. Although her bcg's had dropped earlier in the day after a dance class-but there she had a juice to stabalize as well as precarbed before the dance class. This is the second time this has happened to her. The first time she woke up in the middle of the night shaking-her bcg was around 130 at that time so she did not have a juice. The shaking lasted quite awhile.
Avatar f tn I currently have a 6 year old student in my class who may be having some type of seizure. These are his symptoms: He crosses his legs and lifts them up. His whole body becomes very stiff and rigid. When I try to get his attention, he is not aware at all. This symptom usually lasts between 30 seconds to a minute. His mom says that at home he does the same thing. Once the episode is over, he continues to do what he was doing. Sometimes he is a little disoriented.
Avatar n tn Generally if a person comes into the emergency room and has had a problem with their seizure drugs, they'll give them a big shot of perhaps Valium or another class of anti-seizure medication, depending on what the situation is. Other alternatives are various herbs that can calm a person, but they are not particularly effective for a full-blown seizure.
Avatar n tn For a more detailed description of such seizures, click on the Search link in this Forum, and type in the words 'temporal lobe seizure'. Is aggressive behavior the symptom that caused you to seek advice? What makes you concerned about your son?
880221 tn?1240423082 Exactly one week after, I had my first migraine and it has been one of the worst experiences of my life. My head hurt even without moving, I was sick to my stomach, and while I was in class taking a test my right arm became numb and I could barely use my fingers to hold the pencil. Could the Benaryl have been one of the causes? Can low blood pressure cause a seizure? Since then I have I have been feeling fine.
Avatar n tn Her regular neuro doc has changed her meds around several times although they always seem to be in the same class type drugs. Thanks again. And please let us know if you have had experiences with these type post stroke episodes.
Avatar f tn Headache Dizziness Confusion Fatigue Tremors in hands mostly but do happen in legs, arms, shoulder, and neck.Head shakes too. Numbness (hands, feet, lower leg) Leg spasms Hard to grip with hands Weakness Difficulty walking Joint pain (hips, knees, ankles, wrists, fingers, toes) Joint instability. Can’t support weight.
Avatar n tn After 3 weeks he had only one absence seizure, but then he had his first gran mal seizure. That was in August 07, he was in the shower. He continued to have some absence seizures, but with exercise and showers he would have a gran mal's. We saw a pattern with the exercise and hot showers, we stopped his sports. Now he just has gran mal in showers or immediatly after . I am a nurse, and I just felt very concerned that this could be something else.
Avatar f tn A significant change in the usual seizure pattern like in terms of seizure type, seizure length, or associated symptoms needs immediate medical attention. A changing pattern of seizures may indicate ineffective control of seizures or ineffectivity of the anticonvulsants. It is best to consult your neurologist about it and get the appropriate treatment. Hope it helps. Best wishes!
Avatar n tn etc, he did bloodwork and found that my TSH level was .002. I have been on seizure meds (clonazepam) for ten years. I have been reading that this class of drugs can cause thyroid damage. Anyone have any comments on this?
Avatar n tn The hospital wrote it off as a mixture of low blood sugar (my blood was never taken) and altitude sickness. Then, in December I began a new circuit training class and the same episodes continued to happen and worsened each time. I had another one last night, at the exercise class, and it was the worst so far! In addition to the symptoms listed above, the tremors, and paralyzation are much more severe and (during the last two episodes) my speech is slurred.
Avatar n tn Since being off the Adderall he's been in so much trouble in school and hasn't completed any school work in the past 3 days. He had another seizure this morning and I'm very worried. His Neurologist put him on a medication Zonisamide not reccommended for children under 12? He also ordered a 48 hr. Video EEG. This is all new and would like to hear if anyone has experienced anything like this?
1303966 tn?1296743610 For a year I've been having episodes that appear to be stroke like or seizure like in nature. My L-vertebral artery and R-cerebellar tonsil are crowding my medulla (spinal cord), so this makes sense because the vertebral arteries branch off from the basilar artery. If I'm remembering correctly from what I learned in college. Is anyone familiar with this type of migraine? And, what sort of symptoms do you experience?
Avatar n tn Good Morning. My 14 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with seizure activity in the left side of her brain after having an EEG. She fainted twice in the spring and after several tests it was determined that she had hypoglycemia. We started feeding her more frequent smaller meals.
Avatar f tn He was also still lethargic and somewhat altered approximately 4 hrs post arrived to the ER. Since, He continued to question whether he had a GM Seizure or not and was still in a "Daze." He was sent for a catscan to rule out head injury and/or a possible brain tumor. Strangely, after so many hours had passed since arriving at the ER, he started throwing PVC clusters. They were occuring approximately every 15 minutes or so and he was oblivious to the alarm.

Avatar f tn She had her last seizure when she was 5 1/2. We had to go pick her up at school because she had a grand mall in the middle of class. She was in the hospital for 2 days and never had one sinse. Her neuro showed us what to do when and after she had one. I would recomend taking a CPR class. That is one of the first things the Dr. told us to do. And always lay your son on his side in case he throws up. And it's very normal for them to be sleepy or out of it afterward.
1152344 tn?1262139604 My 11 yr old daughter was dignosed with seizure activity in the left hemisphere of her brain at 14 months old, this is after she had her first seizure which consisted of eyes rolling back in her head, convalations, and unconsciousness. Triggers then was in a light sleep, drowsy and flashing lights. Second, one that we know of was 1st grade after having a migrain at school most of the day with the school nurse sending her back to class saying nothing was wrong with her.
Avatar f tn and that looks like a seizure.....also I would think the spasming of the diagram would cause the body to move in seizure like motions.....the lack of oxygen can cause an altered mental state. I had a different type of incident when I was 10 and deprived of oxygen, it affects your ability to move you limbs.
486038 tn?1300066967 Elizabeth's best friend was in a bad accident 3 years ago. The driver in the car that hit her head on had a seizure. Elizabeth's friend is doing ok now. She was lucky she didn't get killed, she has a teenage daughter.
Avatar n tn I work at a public scool in an inclusion class that has special ed students. One day after lunch and recess an 8 year old girl became upset and began crying. She was told to sit in her desk. She sat down, put her head down and went to "sleep", began snoring and then stopped snoring. She then was unresponsive to anything. We called the nurse and gave her sugar and eventually woke up. She then was uncontrollably upset.She refused to cooperate with anyone for a while.
631581 tn?1224848261 OTOH I have read that credit cards may not be honored as time passes and that people who expect that they have $4000 available on their credit card might be turned down if they try to use it. I'm taking a trip in 6 weeks to have much needed dental work Costa Rica. I have paid my credit card way down so I could pay for the work by Visa. If I had just made minimum payments, I could have banked the big payments and saved the money, paid in cash.
Avatar f tn She should be in individual psychiatric counseling, aside from the family counseling and aside from what she's getting in the facility. Also, the seizure medicine she's taking is NOT working and most definitely needs to be changed FOR SURE. Also, she should perhaps be on short-term tranquilizers, strictly controlled by a psychiatrist... and don't let them give her SSRIs, they're too strong for a young person.
Avatar m tn If your doctor has decided your dog actually needs seizure medication at all, he/she likely has in mind the goals of preventing these unwanted consequences and the worsening of the seizure condition. 2. A steady state of antiseizure medication in the blood, and at a known level, is required to suppress seizures.
Avatar m tn Then It was again and this time in July while playing in the school playground at 1250 hrs in the noon she had this 'seizure' wherein her friends reported that all of a sudden she sat quite, and was hitting her thighs and head with both of her arms a few times not very hard, was not able to recognize one of her friends and was complaining of headache.
