Seizure symptoms hypoglycemia

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms hypoglycemia


Avatar n tn All her symptoms point to it being a hypoglycemia attack. The vets in my area, will not see me unless I can pay the entire bill at the time of the visit, which is impossible. Are there any organizations that would see her, and let me make payments on the bill? I was also wondering if anyone else has had their puppy have a hypoglycemia attack and would let me talk with them to so I can better understand this, if it's what is is. Any and all advice is appreciated. Thank you .
Avatar n tn In some patients, symptoms of hypoglycemia occur during fasting (fasting hypoglycemia). In others, symptoms of hypoglycemia occur after meals (reactive hypoglycemia). Drug-induced hypoglycemia is seen with the inadvertent or intentional overdose of insulin or oral medications used to lower blood glucose. Blood glucose-lowering pills and insulin are medications used to lower the abnormally high blood glucose levels in patients with diabetes mellitus.
Avatar n tn but will hypoglycemia always show up on a blood test? because when she has had her blood tested, it has been at times when she feels fine. no docto has even brought up a the possibility of hypoglycemia or diabeties or anything. but I just have this feeling the seizures are from her sugar or salt levels spiking sometimes. she often complains of feeling dizzy and gets headaches.
Avatar f tn t find any epileptic tenancies and since it was only one seizure to not worry about it. I know hypoglycemia can cause seizures, but is it likely and what tests can we request from the doctors to try to confirm this (he has tried a fasting blood test of 12 hours and it came back fine)?
Avatar n tn Also have you ever heard of having a seizure and then the BS registers 130 after the seizure. No one was here with him the other day when this happened and when my daughter in law came in she took his BS and it was 130. He was talking but was very sore muscles and a headache, so we assumed it was a seizure because he had not been ansxering the phone. Also after this one he was very confused for 5 or 6 hours. I was two hours away and was frantic.
Avatar n tn Hello. I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes. Your son's symptoms sound more like hypoglycemia than diabetes. That is a condition where someone's blood sugars drop too low for whatever reason, and it's different from diabetes in both cause and treatment. I would request to your doctor to get a hypoglycemia check done. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Hello, I hope you'll find this information useful... If you would like to know more on this subject you could join the Forum,.where I have already responded to you on the link below. While there is some degree of variability among people, most will usually develop symptoms suggestive of hypoglycemia when blood glucose levels are lowered to the mid 60's.
Avatar n tn Woke up this morning after getting a great nights sleep, but when I awoke I was seeing spots ,, and my left hand went numb.. Took oxy and valium and seemed to help ,, Finnally went to Beckys took 2 more oxys and another valium, layed down with Becky for about an hour felt much better ,, took too many pain pills today not sure why..
Avatar n tn s all in my head, but these are real physical symptoms. Now I have heard that Hypoglycemia is linked to panic attacks, and eating a non- sugary snack while panicing will help this. This works for me, that's why I think i may have hypoglycemia. I think my fear of seizures while having my panic attacks comes from me knowing that hypoglycemia can cause seizures.
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!
543578 tn?1214412007 It definitely sounds like some sort of seizure activity. I would have him checked out by a vet. It doesn't necessarily mean that he is epileptic, since chihuahuas are VERY prone to hypoglycemia, which can cause seizures. It might not amount to you having to give him an anti-seizure drug every day, if it's caused by hypoglycemia you can combat the seizures by giving her several small meals a day instead of feeding her once a day as you would an adult dog.
Avatar n tn The diagnosis for both the hypoglycemia and seizure was a medication reaction. I had received a local anesthetic and a single tablet of Percocet earlier in the day for a uterine biopsy. In the days following I felt fatigue and a number of neurological problems such as disassociation, deja-vu, and a distorted sense of time. In the year since, I have recognized language deficits such as transposing and substituting letters when I write and continuing to misperceive time.
320576 tn?1204083693 He has some other symptoms as well that I am concerned about. He had a seizure (one and only one) about a month ago. After 3 days in the hospital they sent him home with instructions to visits PCP for liver function test.....long story short, is Hep C positive. We dont know geno yet, but his viral load was 2,810,000 and has elevated ALT and AST, but according to others here (thanks merryBe and others) they seem to feel his numbers are not "real high".
Avatar n tn My husband has had diabetes for 10 years and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital for severe hypoglycemia with a seizure. This is the first time this has ever happened to him. It has now been 5 days since the seizure and he still can barely get around due to extremely sore back muscles. I'm assuming this is due to the muscle spasms that occured during the seizure. He's taking ibuprofin and a muscle relaxant prescribed by the doctor.
Avatar n tn Please don't be scared for diabetes is not life threatening unless you ignore how to control it. And controlling/managing diabetes is piece of cake but you and you alone must take action. Go see your doctor today, don't wait, run. In the meantime go to your local drug store and pick up some glucose tablets. Read this web page and learn to recognize low blood sugar [glucose] symptoms and learn when to use the glucose tablets to raise your glucose levels back to normal.
4569058 tn?1356624189 Symptoms you may have when your blood sugar gets too low include: *Double vision or blurry vision *Fast or pounding heartbeat *Feeling cranky or acting aggressive *Feeling nervous *Headache *Hunger *Shaking or trembling *Sleeping trouble *Sweating *Tingling or numbness of the skin *Tiredness or weakness *Trouble sleeping *Unclear thinking Sometimes your blood sugar may be too low, even if you do not have symptoms.
Avatar f tn I had a complete histerectomy 2 years ago and was doing fine until this and i was diagnosed with severe hypoglycemia which i am managing great but i truly need help i fell down my steps this morning and i am becoming scared because of the toll on my nervous system.
Avatar n tn m being told there is NO WAY POSSIBLE that hypoglycemia can cause a seizure. I need real advice from someone. They want to lable him as epiletic. Can someone give me advice!
Avatar f tn The yelping before hand might make you wonder if there is something hurting him that could be causing the seizure, something inside him that the approaching seizure triggers causing him pain, or if it just his way of responding to the approaching seizure? In Idiopathic Epilepsy the vocalizations prior to the seizure are said to be involuntary and not painful. The drinking afterward could possibly be diabetic related.
Avatar n tn t had a seizure since I was 6. I was diagnosed with Partial Complex Seizure Disorder (Left Temporal Lobe). I have cut 90% of the caffeine out of my diet and refrained from eating too much sugar, this helps some but I am still having them. Thank you and I hope to hear from you.
Avatar f tn t sure if I was going to have another seizure--fortunately I am on Keppra for this, so that gave me a little relief. I did not have anything to eat to start the day. Just 2 cups of coffee. Is hypoglycemia a big problem for those with MS? I ate a little and started to feel a bit better. It is not usual for me to start the day with coffee and wait a couple of hours for food.
2150896 tn?1337513198 The condition affects the gastrointestinal, nervous and cardiovascular systems, and people with post-exercise hypoglycemia may exhibit a range of symptoms. Anyone experiencing post-exercise hypoglycemia should consume some form of sugar, such as candy, juice or glucose tablets. Neurological Symptoms The brain needs sugar to function and, for this reason, hypoglycemia affects the nervous system more than any other part of the body, according to MedlinePlus.
Avatar f tn These are vague symptoms for hypoglycemia. I would see an Endocrinologist and have some bloodwork done.
Avatar m tn He even has had a seizure before. He gets migranes out of no where and sometimes he forgets things that has happened, he has been to the doctor but they cant find anything wrong with him. What is happening?
Avatar m tn I have been having these "Seizure Like Activities". This only happens when I take catnaps. My body goes paralyzed, I can't talk, so I will moan very loud so somebody could help/hear me. My husband witnessed it for the 1st time on October 31, 2009. What he witnessed was my eyes rolling in the back of my head, he states my eyes were blood-shot, I was me moaning very loud in hopes to get his attention. He came home from work around 2:00am on 10/31/09.
