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".
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 f tn do you suggest he go for an eeg or mri or cat scan? his last mri was in september 2007 after a grand mal. thank you for any information u may be able to give.
Avatar f tn Thanks for your answer. 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 m tn My spacial reference had totally become out of whack. Getting in a car was awful. Since then I have had nothing but visual problems and anxiety. Looking down a road seems as if there is no space. I went to neurologist.Tests are still pending. Had MRI, blood work,eyes are 20/20 unusual for my age. Two EMGs. Now about two to three times a week I have burning and can't sleep and have dry heaves. Any thoughts welcome.
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 n tn My 24 yr old daughter recently had a baby. Since then she has had these pretty violent "twitches". Once, she fell but got right up. She says she just slipped. Had an EEG which showed "epelitical activity" according to whoever read the EEG. Referred to a neurologist who order an MRI. Says no epliepsy. He felt it was possible stress. She continues to have these....sometimes many a day. Does not lose conciuosness and no lapse of memory. Could stress cause this?
Avatar n tn 2 Questions : 1. been having seizures (well not really diagnosed) did MRI and EEG came out clear -What can it be? So, not epilepsy? can there be seizures with no reason? 2. Is Lyrica a good drug for it?
Avatar f tn He couldn't find anything obviously wrong and stated that if an adult has one sezure and doesn't have another seizure within 3 months that there was a good chance they will never have another. It's now been 13 months and no seizure. I went running 2 days after I had my seizure and most days since. With this amount of time passed, the anxiety has lessened considerably.
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 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,.
Avatar n tn She passed out, drool came out of her mouth, began shaking and her eyes rolled back in her head. Was this a seizure? and is there a test for seizures? And, if you think it was a seizure, do you think it was because of the slight concussion?
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.
401370 tn?1233328282 In status epilepticus, the most serious seizure disorder and a medical emergency, the seizure does not stop. Electrical discharges occur throughout the brain. The discharges produce a generalized seizure lasting more than 15 minutes or recurring seizures between which the person does not completely regain consciousness. The person has convulsions with intense muscle contractions and cannot breathe adequately.
Avatar f tn Some institutions can perform EEGs with very good spatial resolution and correlate the origin of spikes (seizure origin) with the region where the abnormality is seen in the MRI. If both abnormalities correlate in space, we can say with more certainty that the lesion can be causing the seizures. In your case, it may be important to determine the cause of the lesion. As I said, sometimes the lesion looks benign, and no further testing may be required.
Avatar n tn In 98 I had what turned out to be a severe retinal migrane (I was functionally blind in both eyes for almost an hour) and an MRI die study was done of my head to look for swelling and other posible abnormalities. In August of this year I had an MRI of my cervical spine to help diagnose worsening symptoms in my left arm. The detail in the pictures was amazing. I had 2 ruptured discs - C5-6 and C7-6 - one of which (6-7) was impacting significantly on my spinal cord.
Avatar n tn She has no other typical seizure characteristics as in the past. We were in the ER twice this week. A cat scan shows MRI today. What is going on?
Avatar f tn I was taking that regimen for about a year and a half. I suffered a grand mal seizure in October 2007 and another one shortly thereafter. I had a MRI and EEG which were conclusive for temporal lobe epilepsy. I have no family history of this. My question is could the drugs I was taking possible caused the seizures? I would appreciate any help. Thank you for your time.
Avatar m tn after EEG report treatment was prednisolon it was ok.again he got myoclonic seizure when he was 6 months old. MRI scan was normal. again the treatment was prednisolone .but he has same jerks after awaking.then treatment was sodium valoporate,conezapam and levator.but still has same attacks.i want to know the condition of the this situation.Is that progressive myoclonic epilepsy ?or Lennox Gaurt Syndrom?
Avatar n tn He should definitely not delay in finding an epileptologist who will follow this and diagnose it properly. Often an MRI will be normal even when someone has epilepsy. My son's first couple of MRIs were normal, but finally he had one which showed epileptic activity which enabled the doctor to more definitively diagnose him. The doctor did not wait for the abnormal MRI however, to start anti-seizure medication. If you don't know where to start, google National Epilepsy Foundation.
Avatar n tn I also just started having seizures way scary, i was in my living room one minute the next i was in the er with tubs in and out of my body. It was crazy, they saw seizure activity and prescribed me dilantin and then my doc gave me phenobarbital which makes me DEPRESSED! I see her in a few weeks and god i hope she helps me. I take xanex and it helps, but there is somthing else to it! I feel your frustration. They are scary but themeds are scarier!
Avatar n tn Thank for the feedback kindd, Kindd I have got an MRI & 2 EEG scans done in the last month. All the reports say that there is no abnormal activity in either of the reports, they are perfectly fine. The neurologist doctor i have been showing to has increased my dosage to 1500 mg Torleva, 10 mg Frisium, Met Neurobion, Melzap MD.
Avatar n tn My niece, in her mid 30's had a seizure today. She had two seizures just after her fifth (5th) birthday which the Dr's could not identify a cause. She was given Phenobarbital for a couple of years, taken off the drug and never had another problem until today. She is healthy, physically active, normal weight and in good physical condition with no known underlying medical issues. She has been on vacation for two (2) weeks and said that she was tired and thinks that she is getting a cold.
Avatar n tn My Husband Has had 4 grand mall seziures in the last 21/2 years with 2 of them occurring in the last 3 months. After the first we did the whole range of tests mri, cat, eeg, sleep deprived eeg, and the neurologist found no cause. My husband is a business owner and the pattern leading up to each seizure has been the same. working extremely long hours(12-16 hours a day 6 days a week) and trying to relax by drinking several 4-6 beers every night.
