Seizure of the heart

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure of the heart


Avatar f tn I read people can develop post-head injury seizures, but this doesn't seem like any type of seizure I know of. I've just been dismissing it as one of the many wierd things my body does post-accident. Haven't been to the doctor cuz I don't think I could describe it to him & I think he would dismiss it too and therefore would be a waste of money. Does this sound like anything I should be worried about?
Avatar m tn She said play it by ear - it is possible he had a seizure. I feel guilty that I let the hydrotherapist do so much to him. I have let him down. The palpitations are slightly milder now. Will they go away with rest or should I take him back to the vet thanks a million.
Avatar f tn You need to investigate these symptoms for as to whether this is a syncope, vasovagal attack , transient ischemic attack, dehydration, anemia, hypoglycemic episodes, hypothyroidism, hypo or hypertension, heart rhythm abnormalities etc. The second episode appears to be seizure related since there is an aura and a post ictal phase of confusion and tonic clonic involuntary limb movement including heavy head hitting against the wall.
963651 tn?1247532514 when i faint it comes with really horrible stomach pains sick to stomach feeling dizziness ringing of the ears pounding of the heart hard to breath and lose of conciousness. usually i come to and feel fine.
401370 tn?1233328282 A seizure can cause lack of oxygen, yes, thus causing the heart to endure lack of oxygen as well, and if there are underlying problems due to the fact, than yes- there CAN be damage.. I'd definitely get to the ER or a physician for an EMG...
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.
1563022 tn?1296336199 Went to listen to live music at 7. Thought it would b nice to remember a weekend nite. Sat down and WHAM like I got smacked in the back of the head with a hammer. Was texting, started shaking REAL bad. Dropped phone. Lost it for 1-2 minutes. Acutuley aware of what was going on but was paralyzed. Is this a seizure? Spoke to a friend who has an epileptic friend and he said spots in front of your eyes is a good indicator one is coming. Had that at 5:30 or so. Worst in my life.
Avatar n tn she was taken off of the seizure medication and placed on inderol to control her heart. The seizures subsided, going from 2-3 a week to 2-3 per month, then slowing to 5 a year. Her doctor said she may outgrow them, or they could get worse during puberty. She will be 15 in June this year, and she has had 2 seizures in the last week. Her symptoms are first a severe sudden headache to the side of the head, and the feeling that someone is sitting on her chest and putting a pillow over her face.
393986 tn?1303829575 Hello. A seizure is defined as an episode of central nervous system dysfunction. A seizure may or may not be accompanied by convulsions. Your seizures are unusual. Do you lose consciousness when you have the episode? usually convulsions are tonic (only spasms) or tonic - clonic (spasms followed by repeated contractions). An EEG confirms a seizure. Has it been done?
Avatar n tn What was the result of the MRI ? Are there other symptoms present with the change of seizure? If another seizure attacks, just make sure she has somebody with her all the time and she doesn't hurt herself or hit her head with something hard. Take care and keep us posted.
5466288 tn?1410488785 I was taken by ambulance to the ER.Every test done to check blood sugar,the heart,and for possible stroke,turned out normal.So I was diagnosed with vertigo,given a prescription for Antivert and rehydrated by IV since I was a little dehydrated.I forgot to mention that my blood pressure was VERY HIGH,although just two weeks prior it was very good.My question is could I have had some sort of seizure while sleeping,that left me with the vertigo and HBP? FYI,I have grand mal epilepsy.
Avatar f tn Just as the doctor left the room after shooting him up with the novacaine on both sides of his mouth top and bottom he went unconsious and had a seizure. The doctor stated it was because he fasted and was nervous. He has never had a seizure before but it was deffinately not just passing out. What should I watch for as future side effects of this treatment?
Avatar n tn I had an EEG, CT Scan, blood work, and a holter monitor for the heart, and all of my results came back normal. My neurological exam was also normal. I had the aforementioned tests 1-2 days after my first grand mal episode. I had several aura episodes, and I had many panic/anxiety attacks. I am almost 20 years old, and I live in Canada. What do you recommend I do at this stage? Do I need anymore investigations, or should I be treated for epilepsy?
Avatar f tn when this change in mental status happened, he had had a mild heart attack and was fighting some sort of infection. it has been 2 weeks. the course of antibiotics is over. he is still in same mental state. cat scan showed no bleed or mass on brain. do you have any ideas or suggestions?
Avatar n tn Dear spindoc88, I am so sorry to hear of your recent hospitalization due to a hypoglycemic seizure. This is a great fear of many diabetics and their families. I know this because my daughter experienced one 14 years ago, during the first year after her diagnosis at 21 months of age. She has not experienced any seizures since that time. Any information I pass on to you is based on my own personal experience and knowledge of diabetes, as I am not a medical professional.
1413227 tn?1281798777 The meningioma was on top of one of the dural sinuses but does not significantly compress the dural sinus. No other abnormalities. EEG performed which demonstrated occasional left-sided slow wave activity but not epileptic discharges. 50mg BID of Topiramate prescribed for potential seizures. July 2010 Admitted to South Shore Hospital for 4 days for episodes of nausea, light headedness, limp body, and ability to hear what is going on but not able to speak or move.
207091 tn?1337713093 Oh awesome suggestion about the food. I hadn't even thought of that, but what a smart idea. During the episode, for lack of a better word, I did think stroke, but I keep going back to the recovery being so fast. Thanks for the suggestions, and I will certainly let you know.
Avatar f tn I had an episode of SVT's 2-1/2 years ago. I subsequently posted a question to Dr. MacWilliams concerning ablation. I opted not to have one at the time. I have since had very mild tachycardia events that usually subside quickly, but in March had one that was about 100BPM (my HR is generally 60BPM) which lasted about 20 minutes. The significance of these frequent tachycardia events is that they are always at night. I am awakened with rapid breathing, high BPM out of a sound sleep.
Avatar n tn My husband was to have elective surgery today on his shoulder, while being given an IV of "saline solution", he had a seizure. The nurse could not get the bag to begin dripping, so she continued to inject the syringe into the line to flush it. After about 3 or 4 times, my husband said he was feeling lightheaded and was experiencing nausea. He then got white as a ghost, his eyes rolled back in his head and stopped breathing for a second or two. The Dr.
Avatar n tn ( Head turning towards the right side smaking of lips and eyes shut, i am conscious of the seizure when it happens and can comprehend as to what is happening to me) I have 2000 mg Torleva, Frisium 10 mg, Deanxit 1 1/2 tablets daily. I continue to have these partial seizures at the interval of 2 weeks, the pattern has changes now as i get these seizures only in my sleep which was not the case earlier.
Avatar n tn I have checked the prescription and medical bills which show the same. He still has giddiness after two weeks of the seizure attack and sometimes feels as if the nerves are being pulled in the face, chest, legs, arms, etc. We are very much worried. When will he be able to overcome the giddiness and such nerve pulling. Please enlighten of the side effects of the Eptoin. Is this causing all this or the frisium which he took for five days upto 13.2.08.
Avatar f tn the dog happy to see you when you get home, jumping, laughing,,,we'll thats good stress and brings seizure on too...the calmer the life the less your chances are of, the medicines are some good some bad some side effects tolerable some not...its a hard thing..
Avatar m tn These may include conditions such as the following abnormalities in the blood vessels of the brain, atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries supplying the brain, bleeding into the brain, such as a subarachnoid hemorrhage , brain tumors, chromosomal abnormalities, congenital diseases or conditions, high blood pressure, pregnancy and problems associated with pregnancy, stroke, transient ischemic attack, which is also called a mini-stroke.
Avatar f tn It was then at ninety four (94) but I felt able to drive to the store and shop for the few items I needed. Of course I went to Wal-Mart and after entering the store realized I could not focus on anything and my eyesight streadily became worse. That is all I remember until I heard my name called and found out I had been transported to the hospital by ambulance and was in the ER. I was diagnosed with low blood sugar.
220917 tn?1309788081 And I could feel the 'jolt' in my left foot, too. That was the oddest. And, the jolt HURT the back of my head. It hurt. It lasted a very short time. When I woke, the clock said 2:11. When I looked again--2:16. As long as I could feel it in my head, I could almost feel it in my left foot. I felt stages just like I did with other seizures I have had. I don't think I was 'exhausted' like I have been with seizures, but I think I was kind of shocked.
Avatar n tn some people can be incontinent while seizing, and most seizures, even the less severe type.... causes SOME kind of tremor that would be pretty obvious to a bystander. After a seizure, people report feeling very "out of it", and are often very tired, and sleep for a while...of course, you could have similar symptoms after a panic attack as well. We could guess all day, your best bet is the see the Neuro and make sure everything checks out okay. Let us know what he/she says!
Avatar n tn You failed to report if the medication was working. The repeat EEg's are to see the progress of the medication, a holter monitor is used for the heart and the only other option would be a long term ambulatory EEg. These are hard to find in many areas. It hardly seems necessary if the neurologist if doing serial EEg's. It would not show anything different. If the medication isn't working then the neurologist should be told and a medication adjustment can be made.
Avatar n tn Usually if someone has seizures from hypoxia, it's from a very very severe episode such as people who have big heart attacks and lack complete oxygen to the brain for prolonged periods of time. That's not to say that the pulmonary problem isn't making things worse for your epilepsy. WHenever you;re under physical or emotional stress, that leads to a lowered threshold for seizures.
Avatar n tn Emboli can also travel to the heart, so heart attack is also possible. I am certain that you did not do the damage by lifting him.
Avatar f tn Also my stomach stayed locking up heart rate went up to 130 which is very high, after iv of Ativan and regular iv my seizure stopped maybe lashed 10 minutes, I was scared it was going to happen again, they put me in the ICU and kept me on Ativan and ivs and I never had another seizure but was fighting them off. I got out of the ICU after refusal of heart diagnostics (my heart supposedly stopped 5 times) maybe due to atavan idk.
