Seizure symptoms care

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms care


Avatar f tn i had a clonic-tonic seizure about 3 weeks ago. i was put on keppra and now am having a lot of confusion and am very tired and extremely moody. is this related to the seizure and or the medication?
Avatar m tn Hi, How are you? Are there other symptoms present? What were the results of the MRI, EMG and blood tests? Was there a history of trauma to the head or neck? It is good that eye issues are ruled out already. This could be due to primary headaches which are usually managed with prescription medications. Anxiety as well as depression can also be managed with medications prescribed by your doctor and also with medical therapy.
Avatar f tn Once i did this next thing i knew i woke up sitting on my shower floor with my hair tangled on my shower knob, holding my head up. The only reason for me to believe it was a seizure is because i woke up to a loud banging noise, which happened to be my head hitting the wall continuously, but i didnt feel it and couldnt control it. once i stood up i was still very dizzy, confused and scared because i ended up completely turned around and on the ground of my shower.
401370 tn?1233328282 If you have very few symptoms of a seizure, but didn't endure the full blown effects (silent seizure perhaps?), can an EMG still detect it? Just wondering, because I have Lupus, and sometimes I will notice SEVERE dizzy spells for like 5 seconds,along with numbness or tingling feeling of my teeth WHILE the dizzy spells are taking place, then a weird jolt down my left arm.. (I had tests performed by my doc and they stated it wasn't heart related). Very strange..
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.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms highly suggestive a neurological cause. I recommend that you have this evaluated by a neurologist for proper management. An EEG and complete medical history and direct clinical examination are important. Take care an do keep us posted.

1559533 tn?1308952161 Do the use of these medications help with MS symptoms. If so could taking these type of meds make it more difficult to get a diagnosis.
486038 tn?1300066967 Do I need to seek testing? I have had several possible seizure last fall, they ranged from several seconds (were I would just stare in space and not speak) to several minutes (where I had an aura before had that felt like something washed over me and then I was seperated or a bit detached and I could not speak and afterwards had a terrible headache) and these were witnessed by my mom.
Avatar n tn When I was in my neurologist's office for these results she mentioned that she felt I might be depressed and that this might be causing these symptoms. Less than week later I had a petimal seizure in my sleep that required emergency care. I go back to the neurologist in a few days but am stir crazy about what could be going on inside my head. I am taking Topamax to help. I was taking Ativan but could not deal with how "slow" it made me feel.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been getting this strange feeling since last 2 months. Suddenly I feel a flickering sensation above my right eyelid and my both eyes would start rapidly flickering, the neck becomes stiff & i am not able to speak. This sensation remains for 5-7 seconds and then i am normal again. During this whole process i am conscious & able to walk, move my limbs & able to hear & respond with bodily gestures to ppl around.
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.
207091 tn?1337713093 Hi, I'm not really sure what the symptoms could be, but I honestly don't think it's seizures or a stroke. Seizures you would've noticed twitching and loss of bowel or urinary control. A stroke would've affected one side of the body only, and she wouldn't have recovered so quickly. This could be a thyroid problem, or diabetes. You can try taking her food away for 6-8 hrs so she'll be ready to get tested for diabetes as soon as you get to the vet's office.
5700140 tn?1372655364 The common symptoms seen with withdrawal are moodiness, lethargy, headaches, tingling, suicidal tendencies etc.Lamictral should not be stopped abruptly it should be done slowly.

Avatar m tn You had 3 concussions in 2005. Symptoms may start years later also. Though there is no treatment for PCS itself, symptoms can be treated; medications and physical and behavioral therapy may be used, and patients can be educated about symptoms and their usual prognosis. The majority of PCS cases disappear after a period of time.Please consult a neurologist for the symptomatic treatment.Hope this helps you.Take care!

Avatar n tn Aura, metallic taste in mouth, tongue feels swollen (though it is not) loss of verbal vocabulary... finding basic words, spelling, etc. light and noise sensitivity, forgetfulness during episodes of migraine symtpoms and short-term confusion, for example; washing face with shampoo due to temporary loss of basic focus, coordination and sometimes balance. Staring off into space, blank spots for a few moments and then snapping back out...
Avatar n tn Too much stressed body and mind do not get proper rest and may be a triggering factor. You need to see a neurologist if symptoms worsens further. Keep posting your thoughts. Take care.
2030686 tn?1351692148 Around the same time as the seizure I started a treatment that causes muscle pain/fatigue and flu like symptoms. I contributed the back pain to the treatment as I was told it would probably get worse. Is it possible that all this time I've been dealing with an injury from the fall. Could this shoulder pain be related as well, even though it's been 3 months? The pain wakes me up at night and makes it hard to stand at times.
1745492 tn?1320201940 Psychiatric illness, gastrointestinal conditions or pinched nerves can all cause seizure-like symptoms. Seek professional help. I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and good luck!
Avatar n tn Because he had a seizure almost an hour after the accident, how likely is he to have a subsequent seizure, and during what time frame would it most likely occur? Thank you for this service.
Avatar f tn She used to never have headaches, but it is increasingly becoming a common occurance. Today she was having pre-seizure symptoms, so I gave her Lorazapam and was able to successfully stop a full-blown seizure. She is 20 and not able to tell when she is going to have a seizure. She never remembers having seizures either. I have two questions. Is it safe to stop a seizure when you know one is emminent, or is it better to let it run its course??
1810724 tn?1316936524 So I have been diagnosed with a Seizure disorder almost a year ago. Already been through two different seizure medications and now taking the third. I have tried Depakote ER no help (7 months), Topamax (3 months) and now Gabapentin (1 Week) to control my episodes. Tightness in the chest area with warm sensation that would radiate through both sides left more than right with numbness and tingling feeling.
Avatar f tn None of my doctors know what is going on or why they are happening. All the tests are negative, yet the symptoms are very real. The only time I do not have symptoms is while I am asleep or if I am intently concentrating on a task. So none of this makes any sense. The doctors say they do not even think it is dystonia, nothing totally fits. I am completely concious during an attack and aware of my surroundings, I am just unable to control my body.
Avatar n tn I have a 10 year old son who has never had a seizure. I have very briefly spoke with a Psychiatrist from UVA. who advised me to send my son to his Pediatrician or a Neurologist. Would you please give me a description of the symptoms a child would suffer if this was the case.Of course I have already made an appointment but would like to know the symptons.
Avatar f tn hi,were EEG and MRI were done?.Are you presently on some medications?.Your symptoms suggest absence seizure but this has to be corroborated by EEG findings.Were any blood tests were undertaken?

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.
