Common Questions and Answers about Seizure jacksonian


Avatar f tn His father (my son) was diagnosed with Jacksonian Epilepsy when he was 18 months old. He has since grown out of these seizures (he did at 14). Could the staring seizure be hereditary? How is it diagnosed since the individual who informed my daughter in law of this was a social worker?
Avatar n tn From what you have described, I believe she may have a jacksonian progression- type of seizure where the jerking or spasm will start locally and progresses to become more generalized. These may really not show much on the EEG or other tests for seizures but what is important is that these can be controlled with medications directed for seizures.
Avatar f tn If it were a tic you had, I'd also suggest you look into Tourette's syndrome.
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.

Patients may have some symptoms similar to those in simple partial seizures but have some change in their ability to interact with the environment. Generalized seizures involve larger areas of the brain from the onset. They are further divided into many subtypes. The more common include: Tonic-clonic (grand mal): This subtype is mostly associated with seizures.

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.

Everything came back normal except the lyme test. He tested positive for this, despite his lyme vaccine. Could the lyme disease cause this seizure?
Avatar n tn Here's a little background first. When I was 13 I started having seizures (I'm now 26). I had an AVM (arterior venous malformation) in the left frontal lobe. I have your typical seizures.

Avatar n tn There can be a lot of factors regarding the control of seizures. Some seizures can be out-grown, meaning they would usually disappear upon puberty, or as the child gets into adulthood, while some seizures are chronic and long lasting. Withdrawing the drug can cause the seizures to become active and might lead to increased frequency of attacks. I suggest that you continue the medications until advised otherwise by his doctors.
Avatar f tn my 6 year old lab had a seizure today. his second. he had an episode in nov. i raced him to the vet on that occasion. they charged me 230, and told me he had a tummy ache. he has some lesions on his forelegs, he won't leave them alone, with the licking! they are much better now, but they seem to be holding some fluid. yes, the vet saw those too. seemed to be not concerned. he is a hunting dog, and being a lab, he will go straight through brush and thorns.
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?
