Seizure log form

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure log form


Avatar n tn However, when I started to research low-grade gliomas and astrocytomas, I became very concerned about the possibility of this spreading and becoming a more malignant form of cancer. Any thoughts? I appreciate any feedback. This is very frightening.
3187528 tn?1344809110 About two months ago my 3 year old Jack-a-Bee went into a mild seizure. We rushed him to the vet and he couldn't find anything wrong. Said that it's common for dogs to have seizures and to keep a log if he has anymore. Exactly one month after his first he had his second one in the middle of the night. This is when I decided that maybe his weight had something to do with it. So I cut back on the amount of food I gave him and started walking him for 20 minutes every day.
94007 tn?1224766336 Thats not good. As some of you may remember, he is disabled and on seizure meds which can CAUSE liver damage. How much of that damage comes from the meds its hard to say. He is going to treat in the fall but is switching to another med - Keppra. Is anyone familiar with it? We cant see how he does off the meds because treatment lowers the seizure threshhold. Lots of complications and unanswered questions. That can only be answered by experience - doc is concerned.
Avatar f tn yes depakote is an anti seizure med. there are many anti-seizure meds. could be that one isnt working for her. was one of the charges for selling xanax? jane tell her it is very important that she be honest with you at this point. tell her that nothing will suprise you. going forward you need to know so you will also know how to proceed. she will be calling soon. it is after dinner.
1570846 tn?1295833227 When he's having a seizure one side of his mouth rises abnormally. and then he goes into full Tonic Clonic seizure. But as I said.. your DD's could be a once off seizure. I know of so many people that have a seizure and never have another one. You are going through such a tough time and I know exactly how you feel. Last year was like the year from hell for our family. My son's illness and my dear Mother's illness. And I know the feelings of guilt. But you do have to let them go.
1814056 tn?1316742952 The second neuro said PNES which makes no sense because she has had no traumatic events in her life and the seizures only started when her period started. I have kept a log and mentioned this several times and no one seems to make the connection but me. She is still having them every month. Help? Thank you!
Avatar n tn There is no pattern or noticable frequency to these headaches which leads me to believe it is not medicine-related. Could this be another form of seizure or is this common with this type of epilepsy? Could these be some form of migraines? I get migraines and, other than the nausea and vomiting, they didn't really sound like migraines. What could this be?
Avatar n tn I passed out while shopping a couple of weeks ago and one of the bystanders told the paramedics that I had a seizure after I passed out and they wrote in their report that I had a mild seizure. All of my doctors have said that it wasn't a seizure but rather just some twitching which is common when you pass out.
626360 tn?1221958845 My husband is in school to be a nurse and he has learned that these 'episodes' are a mild form of epilepsy which is a form of a seizure. They can range anywhere from mild to severe. It is important to get her in to a neurologist because although they may be mild it could most definitally be causing the damage a severe seizure could cause. I have not yet to take Emma in but I do feel better with that knowledge. If you would like to know more let me know how I can help.
Avatar f tn While there may be an initial drop in blood pressure while standing in P.O.T.S., some people have the hyperadrenergic form, and the blood pressure can actually go high standing. I believe this is the form of P.O.T.S. I have, though I have not been formally diagnosed with this kind, only diagnosed generally with P.O.T.S.. The Mayo clinic had an article stating that those with P.O.T.S.
Avatar f tn I have been taking xanax for 10 years now I take at least 5 2mg a day. I had a seizure once trying to come off and I have no doctor.
Avatar f tn In essence, these cysts are cerebrospinal fluid-filled sacs which form between the brain (or spinal cord) and a layer that surrounds the brain known as the arachnoid membrane. Primary arachnoid cysts are the most common, arising en utero during development. On occasion, these cysts can also form later in life as a result of meningitis, tumor, trauma, or following brain surgery. Many people are asymptomatic, although those who develop symptoms usually do so prior to age 20.

560706 tn?1216018488 I would be interested in some more information about this as well. I am 48 and have used the galvanic spa 3 times so far. Each time I ended up feeling somewhat uncomfortable around my heart afterward, from extra heart beats to increased heart rate, to tingling and light headed feeling all over my body - or a combination of all those symptoms. I would be interested to know if someone had similar experiences and any idea how one can deal with that or prepare oneself ahead of a treatment.
3213101 tn?1397866145 He was on 145 mg of methadone (dispensed in liquid form from a clinic,) for almost 1 yr. Gabapentin 800mgs 3 times a day. He was put in jail for a traffic violation and the judge chose to send him to prison knowing he was on methadone and gabapentin, He will stay there til trail about 2 weeks. He also has hep c. I am worried about him dying there I read stopping Gabapentin abruptly can cause seizure, and double it with the methadone withdrawal. Is he at risk of dying?
Avatar f tn I have a Yorkie who was having mild seizure problems. Have never put him on any seizure meds as yet and hope not to. He had a seizure in the middle of the night and I called an emergency number for a vet and he recommended a few things.... keep him calm, , place a cool wet clothe on him to cool him a bit and the most amazing important part that "to this day" seems to keep his seizure's away is he said give him a teaspoon of "honey".
551343 tn?1506834118 I think if I could work out when I am going to have a good or bad day it might help, but everyday is different. I can have the worse night ever but have a great day, I can sleep like a log without waking up and have the worse day ever its all so confusing. Oh well tomorrow is another day. Perhaps I will not be so self pitying when I get up tomorrow who knows. It almost feels like ground hog day. ..............................
Avatar n tn If I feel REAL tired and have absolutely no thoughts in my head from pure exhaustion, I sleep like a log. And no, I have never had a seizure in my life. And when I'm asleep I breathe fine, never gasp for air, I don't even snore. So I think extreme anxiety may be the culprit. It's bizarre what anxiety can cause. Psychosomatic events are very real and scary. I'll keep the anxiety approach in mind. Thanks for the input people.
Avatar m tn There have been some reports of memory loss and disturbance of other cognitive functions including alertness following Carbamazepine (Tegretol) use. The effect of the seizure focus in the frontal lobe can't be denied. The two combined together may be responsible for the memory loss.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have fainted several times per year since I was a very little girl. More seizure like than faint, told not epilepsy, but "just phrone to fainting". I learnt to have high salt diet and reads the signs of when one was coming on, often laying down with feet up seemed to help...but not all the time. Was told I'd grow out of it, which seemd to be the case when started to happen less (ie only once a year)....but during my late 20s I started to get them around every 4-6mths.
Avatar n tn Last year I suffered my first grand mal seizure. At the time, I was taking Phrenalyn (similar to Fioricet but without the caffeine) for migraines. There was still barbiturates in my blood when I was hospitalized for the seizure. Since then, any time I go for several days without taking Fioricet, which is what I take now, I get a seizure. They're happening about once every two months now. I do take more fioricet than I should. Sometimes fifty tablets in a week.
Avatar f tn His head size has gone up 7 percentile points since his last check up to the 97th percentile. He also had a seizure while there. He did not have tonic-clonic or grand mal seizures but his eyes rolled to the back of his head while we were changing his diaper and he got all floppy. He didn't try fighting us like normal while changing him. He never tried to get up.
Avatar n tn I took Xanax last year I think it was for a year straight and maybe more it was only half a log or maybe sometimes a log and I also would drink on them I was and still am a heavy drinker. I think the Xanax screwed my head up worse because I always been depressed and have disorders, but I never felt like this its insane. I read on the internet that Xanax can increase depression and panic disorder.
Avatar f tn Has he got any characteristics features in body like any cherry red spot mentioned by doctor on Fundoscopy etc.? Dis he have seizure so far? If yes, what type of seizure was it? I would be interested to know about his disease progression and about his health in general. Keep me informed. Bye.
Avatar m tn He had two seizures, one on Sunday and one on Monday, at almost exactly the same time in the evening. After the second seizure, the vet put him on phenobarbital (97 mg/2x per day). He's been on it for five days now and is still pretty out of it. He is extremely lethargic (sleeps most of the day), has coordination problems, and weakness in his hind end. He walks veeery slowly. He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects.
Avatar n tn Her EEG resulted in a diagnosis of Primary Generalized Epilepsy, and her second MRI resulted in a diagnosis of a 10mm (1cm) Chiari I Malformation. She is on Keppra for the Epilepsy, and I am unsure whether there is a correlation b/w the Chiari and her seizure. One well known Ped Neurologist in town defines Epilepsy as: A chronic neurological condition characterized by recurrent seizures that are caused by abnormal cerebral nerve cell activity.
Avatar f tn I am profoundly grateful to have found this site. You are day 7? How have you done it, have you had help in the form of other meds? How do you keep your energy level up, and your mind clear and focussed?
Avatar n tn I had a rather interesting experience as the result of having another benzo-withdrawal seizure. True to form, I went through my Xanax too quickly -- ran out last week (the same week I started a high-pressure tech writing job). My wife takes Xanax from the same doctor and I further screwed myself by assuming I could refill and borrow some of hers.
Avatar n tn In my case, I have chronic moderate to severe pain from neuropathy for which I take 15mg oxycodone and 1200mg neurontin per day. Apparently, both of these are safe for the liver. Neurontin is an anti-seizure drug which is good for neuropathic pain. Oxycodone is a narcotic and avoided by physicians for it's abuse potential. This combo is a godsend for people with neuropathic pain- basically pain from nerve damage.
544292 tn?1268886268 Theres a lot of conflicting information about seizures on the list. I've never seen anYone have a seizure in tramadol WITHDRAWAL. Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc).
