Seizure symptoms headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms headaches


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 Ictal headaches are headaches associated with seizure activity. They may occur either before or after a seizure. It may be centrally situated or cover the entirety of the head. Severity can vary from a slight pressure to an intensity far beyond migraine. Many cases of ictal headache may be misdiagnosed as migraine with aura or cluster headache. Ictal headaches can often be controlled with anti-convulsants.
Avatar f tn It is possible that you suffered from a non epileptic seizure since your EEG was normal but your symptoms were those of seizures. This type of seizures can occur due to hypoglycemia, migraine, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and syncope and tics. One sided throbbing headache seems to indicate migraine. Migraines can cause blackouts also. I would suggest you to consult your treating doctor and discuss these possibilities as soon as possible. Take care!
Avatar f tn There are medications available which can be used on a daily basis to prevent headaches. These include antidepressants like Elavil, anti seizure medications like Topamax and Depakote to name a few. A neurologist would be able to prescribe the appropriate medications depending on the characteristics of your headache. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Avatar m tn One of the most common causes of headaches in people with chronic headaches is called medication rebound or medication overuse headache, such as from tylenol or advil. If this develops, the treatment is difficult, but basically it involves weaning off the offending agent and replacing it with another that is later weaned off, combined with a more long-term solution.
Avatar f tn I've been diagnosed with occipital headaches, cervicogenic headaches, and migraine type 1 headaches. I have the classic migraine symptoms of visual disturbances, light and smell sensitivity, nausea, and upset stomach. I have multiple back problems along with fibromyalgia that kind of make a bad situation worse.

Avatar n tn I have recently (over the past 2 months) been having many neurological problems such as headache, dizziness, and eye changes. My headaches are almost daily but don't last very long and my right pupil is larger then the left one when dilated. These symptoms all just started a couple months ago. All of them seem to get much worse when I get hot, including the pupil difference.

Avatar f tn I am 20 years old. About two years ago I had a seizure in one of my classes at school. It happened again recently. The first time I didnt have anything to eat before hand and it came on suddenly. This past time, I had enough sleep and had eaten breakfast. I was sitting in a chair when I got lightheaded and nauseous. I thought I was going to throw up but quickly realized that I was going to pass out. My dad was there and said I was out for about two minutes and my body was stiff and shaking.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure if seizure disorder and epilepsy are the same these days? I'm a 43 year old female, no history of seizures, 2 year survivor of breast cancer, which made the discovery of benign cysts in my left temporal lobe. 6 months ago I started having severe headaches with almost stroke like symptoms with neurological deficits associated with them as well as an elevation in my stress levels. All my doctors tell me I have more stress in my life than they've seen in a while.
220917 tn?1309788081 headaches - 30 per day - they come and go quickly; goosebump like bumps going down my legs from time to time; lighheadedness; numb face arms, legs from time to time. I also have a tendency to have low blood pressure. I had a 24 hour EEG done 3 days ago. I had an EEG done 18 months ago - and surprise, no one told me the results. The tech said I had a "spike" which is seizure related. I have another MRI scheduled next week and had 4 done 18 months ago.

Avatar m tn I had been prescribed Topomax 100 mg as a preventative for headaches in the past and since it is an anti seizure med, I took one on a whim. This is the first time an anti-seizure med actually did anything for these. I have been prescribed Depakoate, Propanolol, Atenolol, Neurontin in the past. Have had CATscans and MRI's of my spine and skull. Have seen three general practitioners and two neurologists regarding this.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Are there other symptoms present? If you have episode of seizure in the past, it is best that you have this checked and evaluated by your doctor or be referred to a neurologist for proper evaluation. Diagnostic tests such as EEG and MRI may be done to help with the diagnosis. Aside from ordinary pain medications, stronger prescription medicines and complementary and alternative medicine such as biofeedback therapy and acupuncture may help. Take care and do keep us posted.
880221 tn?1240423082 I was tired a lot but couldn't fall asleep so I started taking Benadryl to fall asleep and that is when my headaches started. My diet wasn't the greatest either, now that I think about it. I was also dealing with a full-time job and going to school full-time. Exactly one week after, I had my first migraine and it has been one of the worst experiences of my life.
Avatar n tn I get this weird feeling come over me for no reason with the symptoms of tunnel vision, blurred vision.
Avatar n tn I loose my vision almost daily, and have focal seizures about 2 times per month. And we not to mention the headaches themselves. According to my doctor these sypmtoms are extreme, but related to the hemiplegic migraines. There isn't alot of information out there on these types of migraines so I just wondered if someone else experiences the same symptoms. I have suffered from headaches since I was a kid, and I am now 31.
Avatar n tn This is a seizure "she gave me a glucose tablet and i felt better" This sounds like what you experienced "I've been fainting A LOT recently, and getting headaches too" Its good you're seeing your doctor tomorrow before things worsen with your well being.
Avatar f tn I have bad headaches and have no appetite. Sometimes I will be talking and it feels like I'm not talking I feel like I went unconscious but I'm not because I'm not at the emergency room or no one is freaking out. Basically it's not visible. I feel like I'm having a seizure or mini ones. I don't have epilepsy and I've never had a seizure before this but think I'm going crazy. The only time I'm not feeling this way is when I'm asleep. Nothing around me seems real. I feel like I'm in a dream.
Avatar n tn I'm 31 yrs old and took seizure meds for over 10 yrs due to 2 grand mal seizures many yrs ago. I had about a 1 year history of petit mal seizures when I started meds. I discontinued my meds (phenobarbitol, 90mg/day) about 7 mos ago. My MRI was completely normal. No problems till now. On Sat. I had some neurological problems that were very different from my past experiences.
Avatar f tn Most cases when you have pretty severe symptoms like this it turns out it is nothing dangerous in the end but you should definitely check this up as soon as possible. You have some red flag symptoms like fast coming intense headaches, fever, and possibly seizures. I don't want to scare you but check this up immediately because if you don't and it actually would be something serious and progressive then you want it treated before it causes any irreversible damage.
Avatar m tn Now I'm getting them at least three times a Week, and now they almost like a Seizure I want to say. I also am left with Major headaches afterwards. However, I am very aware of what's going on when this happens and I know b/c my brother-in law has Epileptic Seizures and he don't know what's going on when he gets a Seizure. Also with me, my bottom Jaw starts shaking uncontrollable right before it happens and some times I can sit up and avoid having one.
Avatar m tn Not sure if I fainted or had some form of a Seizure as I understand there are several types of Seizures. If anyone could give me their opinion, that would be greatly appreciated. I was laying down on couch watching tv. I was doing nothing abnormal or different throughout the day. I got up from couch walked in the kitchen and collapsed on floor face first, with a slight cut above my eyebrow with my right cheek pressed against floor. I was unconscious for approx 1 minute.
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.
