Avatar n tn Was this a seizure? I would never have even thought it would be possible for a cat to flip completely end over end like that! What is going on? My boyfriend said he thought the cat has worms but that wouldnt cause this bizarre flip would it???
Avatar f tn My vet says at her age we should wait and see if another seizure occurs. In his opinion if it only happens every six months then theres no need for her to be medicated 365 days a year. I miss her. This dog was overly alert, excellent sight, radar, never missed anything, Could jumb and scale our 6 ft privacy fence, loved to play, ran with my husband, etc....
Avatar n tn He had a blood sugar of 73 when the paramedics tested him, but they feel that had risen due to the seizure activity. They felt that his blood sugar had been much lower. He was put on seizure watch for 1 week to make sure it was not a different condition. He hasn't had one since. It is a very scary experience. He does not remember the seizure at all.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if a dog (like a human) is aware when having a grand mal seizure?
220917 tn?1309788081 No one has ever seen me have a seizure. I take Topamax, which is an anti-seizure medication, for my migraines, daily. I know I skipped a dose this week. I've done that a kajillion times. I usually go to bed VERY early. 9:00 -10-30 range, because of my fatigue, and I usually nap briefly during the day. I did take my nap, but last night, I was just sick of being sick, and stayed up WAY too late. 1:00. I really was overly tired.
Avatar n tn Yes the sleep disturbance and clumsiness may well be subtle signs of a seizure disorder. The loose stools are nonspecific and should be looked at separately, Possiblilities for the loose stools include lactose intolerance or food allergies, parasites, certain genetic disorders, and many other things. Follow up witht the neurologist on the abnormal EEG.
Avatar n tn I must say, though, I have seen DVT's without those signs. In any case, a DVT is a medical emergency....just so you know.
Avatar f tn My sister had her first seizure last night. She is obese, hypertension and RA. She is on multiple meds for each condition with a new one added in the last three weeks. Enbrel. She was diagnosed years ago with pseudotumor cerebri, but has not had any trouble with it as far as anyone knows. Could this new seizure be due to a recurrence of PTC? She does have an appt. with a neurologist tomorrow, but am just curious. Thank you for your quick response.
Avatar f tn They last about 20 minutes. Blood tests, CT scans, and mri/mra showed no signs of a stroke. Experts said these episodes could have been mini strokes. The neurologists said they could have been seizures. Every time I sneeze I'm so afraid that it will happen again. Does any one have any idea of what is causing this problem?
Avatar n tn Thank you for your information on Temporal Lobe Seizure. My son does show some signs of internal anger and does not know how to get it out. Therefore he does at times lash out at others. His memory is bad and he is not focused. I did send him immediately to his pediatrician and he has been diagnosed with ADD and has been put on Adderall. He shows absolutely no signs of hyper activity though. This should take care of the class and memory part.
Avatar f tn At that point, you can ask how to monitor your children for signs of the condition should they follow in your footsteps.
209227 tn?1242350345 It did affect my memory and was put on seizure medication for 6 months. In you're opinion was this a seizure? Because I feel it was not. Opinions are greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn yes those or all signs of a seizure it sounds like a partial focal seizure to me but thats just my opion
Avatar n tn hi, one rule of thumb to think about, is that anything the body can do normally, it can do abnormaly in the form of a seizure. I would like to encourage you to educate yourself on seizures. Check in your area, there may be a Epilpesy Foundation in your area, that can assist you in understanding seizures. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
Avatar n tn 's are in disagreement with one another (ER dr. and primary say syncope and 2 cardios say seizure). I supposingly have NCS, but my new cardio says in his opinion the TTT was negative even though my heart rate and blood pressure dropped and I collapsed. He says I didn't faint so it's negative. Now, that I've cleared that up. :) I have recently been having this buzzing in my head. The 1st time it was quick and I felt like I was blacking out and falling (I was sitting down).
Avatar n tn 6 days after being put on the risperdal, however, I had a grand mal seizure at work whilst teaching. I had taken 25mg of adderall that day. The night before I had taken 15mg restoril, 30mg lexapro and 0.25mg risperdal. MY stress level was extremely high that day with general feelings of being out of control and unable to keep up during the general time frame of a few weeks. I have quit work for 3 months to lower my stress and reduced adderall to 15mg a day.
Avatar n tn ) 5 days ago my son, who is now 7 years and 4 months had a complex febrile seizure at school. My son has not had a seizure for at least 2 1/2 years. (He is scheduled to see a pediatric neorologist. Have you ever seen any correlation between a similiar problem like this? They are 2 different areas of medicine, I know...I just don't know what to think.
Avatar f tn My 7 year old son was resently diagnosed with Complex partial seizure disorder. This weekend, my husband was home with him and said my son called out to him. When my husband went to him, my son said daddy I feel funny. My husband seems to think it was nothing, I on the other hand have doubts. Since this episode, he has been very aggitated at school and at home, very short tempered, tired, just not acting like himself.
Avatar n tn I work in a boarding school and we currently have a 15 year old boarder having some sort of nocturnal seizure. They happen on average about once a week - occur mostly about 4 to 5 am in the morning. Signs and symptoms are: unconscous for at least 5 mins, slight jerking of leg, arms generally above the head with one hand gripping the other arm tightly, moaning and a small amount of grunting - also some picking of clothing or constantly picking of duvet. Issuing words that do not mean anything.
Avatar m tn My name is Joseph, im 18 and just started college in carlow.. Last Saturday, at around lunch time, I had, what I believe to be, a seizure of some kind.. My vision began to jump, prior to the attack.. Basically I would look at something, say a tree, and when I looked away, I would still see the tree.. As my vision began to jump around, I began shaking.. I lost contentiousness and collapsed.. The attack lasted a few minutes.
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome, Your still in your teens so it's unlikely to be PPMS, the average diagnostic age is in the 40-50 age group because PPMS causes a 'slow' disease progression and it usually takes decades before the accumulative affects become evident. Theoretically for your age you'd still be withing the age range of pediatric MS, even rarer than PPMS but the diagnostic rules of RRMS would still apply....
Avatar n tn Hi My niece has developed a sleeping disorder of laughing seizure like she laughs while i sleep for 3-4 seconds and then stare and then sleep and this pattern at times is also during day time when she is awake. We did EEG and MRI and nothing came out from them.Follwoing is the report of both. EEG It is a wake reord.patient was fairly cooperative. Artifacts are minimal. Photic stimulation from 3 hz to 21 hrtz was given for 45 seconds.At an interval of 5 secs inclose eye state.
Avatar n tn my 17 yr old daughter has in the past 2 months "passed out" during routing medical procedures. The first time the eye doctor put drops in her eyes to dialte them. The second time she received a vaccine injection. Both times her eyes were open and she lost sense of sight and hearing. She dreamed of fairys and ponys she said. She got really hot and sweatty both times and turned a sickley greenish white after her blackouts.
Avatar n tn I am a 35 yr old female that 2 yrs ago starting having seizure like activity I have had several EEG's and did a 5 day EEG video monitoring. Apparently I was physically having seizures but EEG did not show one. I still physically have seizures or something that looks like a seizure. Mostly I do not loose contiousness however I am not always able to communicate depending on what part of my body is seizing.
Avatar f tn // I s it a seizure...psuedoseizure? She has no memory of event and every time it happens...she loses cognition and motor skills. Her abilities have dramatically reduced. AND the worst thing she knows she's different.
Avatar m tn She is extremely skittish now when we do get home from work. I am wondering if she is having a panic attack or some type of seizure. Any insight is appreciated.
Avatar n tn I'm thrilled to read your post! I'm looking for a cause for my problem, and while doctors are currently contemplating a possible heart-related cause, a friend (a doctor) recently suggested "focal seizure" or partial seizure. In the typical list of symptoms of partial seizure, the sufferer is said to be unable to speak or has involuntary movements. That is not me. I remain able to take my pulse and take stock of other symptoms, plus describe what's happening, as it's happening.
Avatar f tn To make a long story short the vet called me Saturday morning and told me that Chewy had a seizure 15 minutes after I left him at the vet. He also told me that he started him on Phenobarbital 3 ml morning and evening. He said that if he was better Sunday morning I could pick him up, which I did. Today Monday, I brought him back to the vet for blood work. The vet said his kidney function was a little elevated so he could not rule out poisoning.
