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 m tn She just had another seizure about a month ago when she was in the hospital due to a migrane. The neurologist said that he thought that was due to all of her medications that she is on. He put her on Depacot for seizures, we go back to the doctor in a week. He is only going to put her on the medication short term. I would suggest that she go to a neurologist and see what they say. I hope she feels better soon. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn So unsure if this cycle late yet or not. I'm on day 29 right now. I had pms symptoms in the 2 week wait n had some light cramping on day 27 of cycle thought for sure AF had shown up. Now I have no symptoms n still no AF. Took a dollarama test today n it says negative. Ne one else have this happen n end up with a positive a lil later?
Avatar m tn My wife delivered a baby girl on 11th May on Mother's day. During her pregnancy, she was perfectly healthy & normal and all tests conducted during pregnancy were also reported normal. The delivery was a normal vaginal delivery without any epidural or any other medication. Post delivery, after 2 hours, she had a tonic clonic seizure for 30-35 seconds and recovered on her own. Doctors shifted her to recovery room with oxygen mask and loaded her with Phenytoin thru IV.
Avatar n tn Is the seizure itself at all harmful? We plan to contact our doctors (neurologist and obgyn) in the morning to let them know.
Avatar n tn I have seen 2 different doctors for this issues. The first doctor said i had Simple Complex Seizures. The second doctor diagnosed me with Psychogenic NonEplileptic Seizures. I have been through all kinds of tests and noone seems to know what I exactly have. I start to feel a sort of aoura come over my body.My face and fingers will become pale..dead-like looking.i am concious but feel weak.I am aware of whats going on but would rather just not talk until it's over.They last about 5 minutes.
2030686 tn?1351692148 I should add, at the beginning I had severe upper leg pain/fatigue, but this is also a very common side effect of the treatment and seems to have subsided somewhat.
Avatar n tn -How old is she now? -is there any history of seizure disorders or congenital anomalies in the family? -are there any remarkable circumstances surrounding her birth i.e. premature rupture of membrane -any recent infections,head injuries ? -how is your niece's level of development? Are her motor and social skills at par with others of her age? -any muscular spasms or loss of consciousness associated with the episodes?
Avatar n tn My friend is 27 years old, no hx of major illness or trauma, and was in her ninth month of pregnancy when she began having shaking in her arms and hands.She was worked up by her OB with no dx, and sent to a neurologist who stated it was anxiety. the day she went into labor the shaking was all over and she was babbling and disoriented.After the epidural she was oriented and the shaking stopped.She preceded to have an uneventful delivery.
Avatar f tn R.. Lots of tests where done (pregnancy, drug,cat scan) all came back normal. There was talk of seizure. We where there from 10am till 7pm I remember one snapshot of this whole time. most of it I slept through. By that evening the slurred speech and balance was better but I was very slow and seemed confused. The second day I slept all day. The third day I remember some of.
Avatar f tn My dads epilepsy doesn't show in his brain and they said that is a common occurrence in epilepsy patients effecting up to 45% I really hope for yours and the baby's sake they figure things out! Good luck girl my.thoughts are with yu!
Avatar n tn 4th pregnancy.... last pregnancy son born 10 months ago with situs ambiguous..did all the tests including gentetic testing they never found out what caused it. since then about 6 months ago I was in the hospital for one week in and out of ICU because I had siezures bad enough to where I would stop breathing and the first day they told me I was in and out of siezures for the first 16 hours! but I have never had a siezures in my life before or since that incident.
363110 tn?1340924019 I'm pretty knowledgable in alot of areas regarding pregnancy but this is a new one to me. I've done research but just want to hear from real moms, know what I mean? thanks for sharing with me. Keppra was one of the meds that showed up in my research as one of the safer ones. I'm sending you a personal message so please check your inbox.
Avatar n tn as i get closer to my due date i've noticed that my baby girls movements are becoming more frequent and much stronger, however every once in a while there's about a 20 second long "spaz" attack in my belly, the entire thing shakes and moves and although it's not painful i was wondering if anyone else has ever experience this, was it normal? and was your baby healthy? i fear that maybe she's having a seizure or something of that nature, is this possible? HELP!!
1429890 tn?1312389607 Normally I would worry about pre eclampsia but that doesn't show up in the first trimester so it is to early in your pregnancy to be worried about that just yet
161427 tn?1229914882 I had my one in only seizure in 96' school parking lot in my new car. hit two other cars, and ended up in the newspaper. can we say embaressing. to say the least.
Avatar f tn Though, it's still early in pregnancy (7 weeks) and I hear that's pretty normal due to the changes in hormones.
Avatar f tn I hate to sound whiney or over exaggerating but I feel like it's a pretty big deal to have never had a seizure in my life and then out of nowhere need to be rushed to a hospital by ambulance because of one.! Ughh it's just so frustrating and I just don't feel like I'll be satisfied until my son is out and healthy.
Avatar n tn My daughter is 4 and we are just in the beginning stages of epilepsy that began with a seizure in March very similar to what you wrote about. Her first seizure started with vomiting, dazed/disoriented state, urination/bowel movements, unconsciousness, and then convulsions. Our ER visit also resulted in an normal CT, which we were thankful for too!
Avatar n tn At 14 Had a grand mal seizure (in shower). My mother believed it was from not eating. I dropped a lot of weight very quickly, and was not eating properly. CT scans normal, MRI normal (sinus problems though), and EEG's have been normal, BUT I've had some show slowing (whatever that means). Have been on a non-theraputic level of Dilantin for years! Last week started with a new neurologist, and she would like me to try Lexapro; in which I'm very afraid too! She thinks maybe it's JUST anxiety.
Avatar f tn Hi! As with all medications in pregnancy, they are best avoided unless the benefits outweigh the risks. There is not much data available on Seroquel, but what is available suggests that if you can find a safer alternative you would be better off. If you need your medication to be healthy and there aren't any available alternatives, then ( just like people who have seizure disorders) it may be necessary to take the risk. I know this sounds like a wishy washy answer, and it is!
9605375 tn?1404874431 I'm 30 weeks.
Avatar n tn Had a pregnancy stroke (due to toxemia/hypertension) and seizure when I was 18. No effects from either. It is now 17 years later and I had some dizziness so I had an MRI done in March 2008. The findings from the MRI at age 18 (1992): lateral ventricles are slightly large for someone at this age 2 to 2.5 cm wedge shaped area of low density involving the right superolateral frontal cortex consistent with an infarct there.
Avatar f tn I found out yesterday that I'm pregnant. I am soooooo upset right now!! I'm happy about the pregnancy but feeling super depressed and hating myself for the taking the tram. I have no idea what to do. At my high dose, I'm afraid to just quit c/t because I'm afraid of the harm that might do plus I don't know if I could handle the w/d's. Does anyone have any information or suggestions????
