Seizure precautions and first aid

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure precautions and first aid


Avatar f tn I went to the hospital, had the LP, lay there afterwards for an hour or two. Then got up, drove myself home, and resumed my life. No special precautions at all, and no caffeine. A lot of this depends on the skill of the doctor doing the procedure, and thhe use of flouroscopy for t Anyway, welcome to the club! I'm glad your PCP is taking such an interest.
Avatar n tn Then, just two days ago, another episode and fainting spell. Unfortunately, I went head first and split open my nose, and now have a puffy lip and somewhat of black eyes. But, I do find that it may be after a stressful event and I was probably constipated and finally relaxed and/or I have eaten some rich foods. My husband suggested to take deep breaths more, and not hold my breath. I just don't want it to happen where I hurt myself again, more serious, and no one is around.

It has since progressed to where I can feel it all day... but night is the worst. Not as bad as yours, but enough to affect my sleep - and is now having a definite affect on the strength in my left arm. And no, it is not the "shooting pain" associated with a heart attach... nor does it start in the shoulder as in the case of bursitis mentioned above.

544292 tn?1268886268 It makes me very angry that these Doctors know and aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant. I've been over and over it again and again. It makes no sense that I would know more as a user of the drug than they would. There's so little on Tramadol or Ultram on the web. Tons on other drugs. Ok so the most alarming part of the Tramadol we would think would be the fact that it is a synthetic opiate. It's a Narcotic. It's just been slipped thru the schedule.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
266539 tn?1281405752 I don't think there is anything wrong with that and I actually think it is good, espesually if they are going to have a new brother or sister and using a doll as a teaching aid. What do you ladies think? Is there anything wrong with little your little girls play with dolls?
Avatar n tn I was very well satisfied with this medicine for the first 2 weeks of taking it. No side effects and no siezures. But, last week I felt bad that afternoon and went to bed very early. I woke up the next morning and my bed was covered with my blood. I had chewed a hole in my tongue. I could barely move for my aching muscles, but I made my way to the bathroom. I looked in the mirror and my face and chest were just covered with little reddish purple spots.
Avatar m tn I am aware of the precautions with Trazodone. I currently take 50mg at night to help sleep (and to try and help with depression, but it doesn't seem to). Like so many others here, I try to rationalize my problem by searching for ways to mitigate my upcoming discomfort before I stop taking opiates. I sit and count the remaining pills to determine when I have to start weaning (a point which I have probably passed already).
Avatar f tn for the record I am on 300mgs a day I do not experience the first two (i.e. no loss of hair and no loss of appetite) and inexplicably, I think the "dopamax" has helped me with my FOCUS and with my studying (I used to take Adderall but that road was a little tricky for this recovery addict).

Avatar n tn You know with all the burocracy here in the states regarding health and medical it won't get any green light so you decide to try it and it helps please let us know. Just make sure you take precautions I mentioned above first before trying things out and know whats in it and what your taking and that it poses no harm or known side effects. I hope this helps. Check back in and let us know. -Rich P.
162948 tn?1205256292 Some women will spot throughout the first year with it, but most will see that drop off and will see lighter periods as well. I was nursing for the first full year I had my IUD in, which helped contribute to not having an af. Once I weaned, my period returned, but was extremely light, literally a few days of spotting. When I got it removed, my cycle stayed the same.
Avatar n tn Hi,Suri Okay so you asked how often do they occur-They are on and of so in other words it doesnt happen everytime im asleep.Maybe like every other night.And like I said before it lasts like 10 sec. with no pause in between.
