Common Questions and Answers about Seizure jacksonian


Avatar f tn There are myoclonic seizures that are progressive and Jacksonian seizures start in a limb. Sounds like seizure activity, but make a log of the symptoms, activities, food, etc. This can help, MD figure things out. Sleeping alot after a seizure is normal. I have known people who sleep alot during the day to have sleep apnea and develop seizures from lack of oxygen during the night... Important to get a work up in addition to your thyroid workup.
Avatar f tn He has difficulty swallowing, muscle intention tremors with exertion both in his upper and lower extremities. He gets better with rest. He also has a learning disability and seizure like activity when exhausted. His chromosone abnormality is chromosone 5 31-33.1. He had syringomyelia but had a subarachnoid shunt installed in 2004. The doctors seem to think there is a psychological cause. He chokes on his food at times and his saliva.

However, the day of discharge upon my arrival home I had two back to back seizures, no control of my left leg, resulted in falls. My seizure activity has increased, to include urinary and bowel incontinence. ( well,..
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, we have tried anti-seizure medication and they have increased the number of fainting/seizure spells. Paxil has slowed them down because the doctors seem to agree that they are more anxiety related so this is the last medicine they have decided to try for it. Thanks for the information.

Avatar m tn my parents had been to the vet and when I got home I sat with him while he suffered 4 more seizures I decided that I could not see him suffer and we went to vet and tio got the jag to sleep as u can imagine has been upsetting. my question is I found out when he took the first seizure When I was home with himhe struggled to do a poo outside and it looked strange.
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 m tn It does still fit the description of a seizure. Not all seizures involve paddling, slobbering and loss of bladder control. Those are basically what are considered to be grand mal seizures. Petite mal seizures can be anything from a twitching of the head to a state of catatonia for a brief time, which sounds more or less like what your girl had. Please let us know what the vet says when you do get to take her in. Good luck to you!

Avatar f tn Hello. You have done a good job by bringing this to the forum. There is a possibility of a partial seizure. But you should also consider something called as eye tics. These are not so uncommon in infants. You may need to get an EEG done. A video EEG is preferred. It has the advantage of letting us see the brain waves during such an episode or up rolling of eyes. Did he have any significant birth complications?
Avatar m tn my stepdad has been recently diagnosed with a seizure disorder. He feels more sick on the medication than he did beforehand.

Anyone else experience anything like this??

Avatar f tn when i FINALLY got an after hours vet on the phone the advise was that it was probably a seizure and to give her 1/4 of a motrin. does this sound correct and what would cause a seizure in a perfectly healthy dog ?
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 n tn A few minutes later he was throwing up. Then got really tired afterwards. He does have a seizure disorder. And is taking medication 2 times a day. Why did this happen? Im scared and don't really know what to do. Was it the weed that made him do this, or the medication he's taking? I don't want him to do it again but I'm afraid he'll want to and that one of these times he's not gonna gain consciousness....
Avatar f tn she is wding without tapering take her to an er and get her into an addiction program
320944 tn?1245966599 After all this time on tramadol I finally took too much and had a seizure in the middle of Golden Coral. My ex called 911 and I was taken away in an ambulance. I do not remeber having the seizure or anything else in between I woke up in the ambulance when we were almost to the hospital no knowing what was going on. I did not mention a thing about using tramadol. They took my blood and could not understand why it had a high level of PCP in it.
