An EEG to ensure that there are no structural abnormalities in brain. Normal EEG and MRI brain are encouraging though this does not rule out a future episode.

Avatar m tn I absolutely have no sweets and switched to sprouted grain bread (no flour and has a low GI) and high fiber carbs which are better for your blood sugars. I gave up sweets, junk food, crackers/cookies/chips, ice cream for the most part with an occasional indulgance of 1/2 cup serving, and gave up rice and have only whole grain pasta. So, if he's serious like that, maybe he can avoid the medication entirely. But, you have to run everything by the doctors.

Avatar f tn Blue Buffalo dog food and many pet foods others have been recalled for various reasons. The blue dog food could have caused this if your dog is on this type of pet food. In most cases, all lab tests come back normal and no underlying problem is detected, then for example phenobarbital is started.

Avatar m tn My 16 yr old daughter recently had a seizure post local anaethesia for dental extractions, it lasted less than a minute and she was concious afterwards, but tired and nausious. It was a an early morning appointment and she never ate breakfast, so I was thinking maybe her blood sugars were low, they went ahead with the extractions anyway. she has to return for more extractions shortly and we are all very anxious this will happen again. Any advice would be useful?
Avatar m tn Do you feed him his food fast, can he catch his breath between mouthfuls ? If you think you maybe take it slowly and let him digest each mouthful doesnt sound like a seizure ..

Avatar n tn 3 weeks ago, after a prolonged seizure, my 16-month old daughter came into a deep sedation status. After the anti-seizure medications were reduced and eventually stopped, she is still in a deep sedation (or light coma) mode as of today (Aug 10). She is responding to pain by withdrawing her legs or arms, and her eyes do move from side to side when they are open. However, she has no reaction to stimulus such as light, sound, moving objects, etc.

Avatar n tn Soy is bad for the thyroid. So if you drink soy milk to avoid dairy (rise in popularity), ditch and get almond milk. Keep calcium and vitamins 4 hour from taking thyroid meds. More questions? Be a little more specific and someone will be glad to help you!
Avatar n tn 4) If you agree to take ALL seizure precautions during a possible trial of stopping or tapering down your seizure medications (that means, living with someone; possibly refraining from driving and using heavy machinery.) Prior to all of this however, you should undergo a routine EEG. If you are not already seeing a neurolgist, please do so -- preferably an epileptologist (seizure specialist.) Neurologist are trained to deal with complicated cases such as yours.

Avatar f tn It sounds like a possible seizure. They can manifest in many different ways and it's not uncommon to see that head tilting behavior. It's also typical to that they need to sleep quite a while after having a seizure. Since he's had two episodes that you know of, it's definitely time to see your vet. Try not to panic. I know seeing a seizure of any kind is extremely scary, but epilepsy in dogs can usually be well-managed with medications.
