Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms mayo


627388 tn?1222201812 Has anyone from the MS forum ever seek treatment for their MS at the Mayo Clinic? If so, how was your as your experience with physicians from the clinic? I am considering driving up to Mayo at some point if my neurologist in town can't definatively diagnosis me.
1303966 tn?1296743610 It's hard to determine what my Chiari symptoms are until my seizure symptoms are under control. This has been misdiagnosed and poorly treated for so long. I'm told the balance, vertigo, vision, tingling, and other problems can be from the seizure disorder. My headaches are complicated migraines.
1303966 tn?1296743610 I will be going to Mayo in a few weeks. Does anyone have any experience with Mayo Clinic? I'm going because my seizure disorder is out of control, but they know I have Chiari and I will be having an updated MRI. I'm on the highest dose Zonegran and an add on seizure medication and the discharges just keep on coming.............. I just lost a friend. She was so beautiful, only 41 with a husband and and three gorgeous children. She had Chiari Malformation 1.
1653487 tn?1303527762 I just recently had my first (that I am aware of) seizure at 35 years of age... My husband witnessed the episode but I have no memory of it happening. This happened in my sleep this past Sunday night (March 27th)... After two days in the hospital and the plethora of tests, the MRI came back normal but the EEG showed abnormalities in the back right lobe of my brain. I was placed on an anti-seizure medication - Keppra 1000mg and told that I can not drive for at least 6 months...
Avatar n tn // I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes, and I don't know all the specific of your son's case, so I'm resisting saying exactly what happened to him. But that site does describe the condition pretty well. Again, I'm very sorry for your loss.
Avatar n tn If you didn't have the spine imaged, you should talk to your doc as MS can show up there too. Hypothyroidism can certainly be a cause of your symptoms. Once treated adequately, your symptoms may improve. Another test that may be helpful is an EMG to see if this a problem of your peripheral nerves. Laboratory workup such as ANA, sed rate, blood count and electrolye profile can also help rule out other potential problems such as lupus and other rheumatological disorders.
Avatar n tn I am a 31 year old male and have had undiagnosed symptoms off and on for 5 years. The symptoms were fatigue, tingling in my limbs, a feeling of loss of dexterity in my hands, trouble taking a deep breath, and chest pain. I had an MRI and countless blood and urine tests, but nothing was found. About three months ago I started feeling the lack of dexterity again along with a feeling as if something was stuck in my throat.
Avatar f tn I have been having an onset of new symptoms in the last 4-6 months that I have not had any resolve to. I am a 31 yrs old and just can't seem to get answers to become well again. My GP sent me to a new Neurologist last week who ordered an MRI of my brain to check for lesions (MS) and tumors due to severe migraines, loss of balance and muscle related issues. Everything came back clear. I have been having a dull, uncomfortable pain under my right and left ribcage and also right shoulder.
Avatar n tn I was only out of work for 2 weeks and during that time was somewhat out and about. Symptoms of a new illness presented in March, starting with a canker sore, and progressing to flu like symptoms. I noticed greenish/brown mucus and tooth pain and went to doctor for an anti-biotic (I think Bactrim). I took the antibiotic which seemed to clear up what I thought was a sinus infection but I still wasn't feeling better and my glands were very swollen (they still are too a degree).
Avatar n tn Hi Sag77, My comments are just patient to patient but might help you research a little. There are complications that can off-spring so-to-speak, from autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's). Diabetes is one of them but patients practically are never informed about this. Some of the diseases that can develop are "Poloyglandular Autoimmune Diseases".

Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
3054080 tn?1358726456 Or, maybe there isn't any connection at all So, I was wondering, do any of you all have things that happened back during childhood that you believe was a precursor to your MS? If I recall correctly, HVAC had symptoms from childhood. Anyone else? And again, would it be worth mentioning to my neurologist?
Avatar n tn Hospitalized for 2 weeks, could not walk, talk, seizure type symptoms. I have elevated liver enzymes, slightly enlarged liver and spleen, fluid around my heart. I have rashes that come and go. Suffer from extreme fatique and neurological problems as well. I have been to 15 doctors and still have not answer. I am on a waiting a list for the Mayo Clinic, but that could take months. I turn jaundice, have Reynauds syndrome, and ITP.
Avatar n tn Is your specialist considering a pacemaker to help control your symptoms? Depending upon the exact mechanism of the patients symptoms, a pacemaker may help to eliminate some fainting episodes. Though, I wouldn't expect it to eliminate all symptoms. It could, but it won't necessarily because the patients blood pressure could still crash. Dysautonomia Specialists:
Avatar f tn Hello I posted in Neurology before about some symptoms I had that didnt seem right, but I didnt have many tests seeing as doctors wouldnt do too much. Now I have a little more to go on. I had two abormal EEGs, along with the nerve conducitons and muscle tests both showing full body neuropathy. I had blood work that got me referred back to my PCP by my neurologist that apparently had CPK, and ASMA levels that were abormal. What could all this mean?
Avatar f tn We DID get a report from the Mayo Clinic's Neuropathologist. Basically, it mirrored the HUMC Neuropathologist's report, which confirmed abnormal cells; however, no definite diagnosis. There was no fever following the seizure or during the 11 days in the hospital, or since. Also, I have been tested twice (once in Nov 07 and once in Feb 08) and both were negative. I have been told that there is no tumor and no cancer!!!
Avatar m tn Hello, I had a seizure in January and one in February, these were the first times I ever had a seizure. They were Grand Mal seizures. I have been on Phenytoin Sodium Extended 300 mg a day since. I experienced an "aura" before the seizure, which I had the feeling before. At Mayo Clinic, they diagnosed me with Complex Partial Seizures with Secondary Generalized Seizures. Recently I have a muscle twitching in my back--it was going on for 4 days now may have subsided.
Avatar m tn My dad has had two very lengthy hospital stays in a neurology floor of a Level 3 Texas Hospital. They ran multiple CT's, MRI's, Spinal Taps, Blood Work and EEG's to name a few. There was seizure activity though my dad has never had a "shaking kind of seizure". His symptoms include confusion, tremors, shuffling of the feet, a quivering sensation that starts "inside and works it's way up his chest and into an arm" he says...
Avatar n tn It caused permanent nerve cell damage, resulting in excruciating pain. I have seen numerous doctors (Mayo Clinic)and specialists; trying numerous drugs. I am allergic to most narcotics. except codeine contin; 50 mg-2-3 times daily. EMLA cream has been a godsend. The numbing agent allows me to drive short distances and to socialize. I have spent $30,000 on alternatives with litttle success. Any new ideas? THANKS!
15908041 tn?1443885758 I have hashimotos thyroiditis and have been put on levothyroxine 50mcg and just came back from the mayo clinic a month ago bc they though these sensations could be simple partial seizures and they did MRI's and SPECT scans with nothing to find but still are not ruling out the seizure aspect. I am also on 400mg of Lamictal and 1200mg of gabapentin and they have helped a little but not enough to be satisfies at all bc I am still getting these sensations regardless.
Avatar f tn Old chronic persisting symptoms: Severe abdominal pain )every day) made worse when having a bowel movement Nausea (every day) Vomiting Migraines (since I was 14 years old) Acid reflux ( diagnosed 9 years old) Stomach upset feeling Anxiety (however currently on cipralex as they thought migraine was tension headache) New symptoms (popped up 1-2 months ago) Whooshing, ringing in my ear Dizziness, lightheadedness, faint feeling Seizure (happened once so far) Left side pain Sha
Avatar m tn The demands of being in school may lower seizure threshold. There's no easy way to identify the cause of a seizure disorder. The MMR and other vaccines haven't been found to be associated with the development of seizure disorders, at least not so far. Unfortunately achieving 100% certainty in medicine is virtually impossible. I live with this myself and have seen it many times.
Avatar m tn What if a tumor is causing this acceleration of symptoms? And since three anti- seizure meds have failed – well, I am deeply concerned! If either “Mary” or Doctor Deshmukh Senior are reading this then I need some advice – these episodes as Mary said = “horror” and Doctor Deshmukh put her on Tegretol which almost made me seizure – and Lamictal put me in bed with a body tremor, suggesting a seizure.
620251 tn?1221447442 My condition went undetected for many years until I went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, and it wasn't until I suffered from a Gran Mal seizure in front of witnesses that someone finally took my seizure symptoms seriously. Don't wait to seek treatment. Tell your neurologist about your family's history with migraines and be sure to have your children treated early also. They may be suffering from partial seizures even now and not know it.
Avatar n tn Without the ability to examine your niece and obtain a history, I can not tell you what the exact cause of her symptoms is or how to treat them. However I will try to provide you with some useful information. It is very difficult to put all her symptoms together, and is difficult to tell you what she can have specially without knowing what types of tests she had, and their results.
Avatar n tn LOOK WHAT I FOUND ON THE MAYO CLINIC ******* SITE!!! A temporal lobe seizure starts in the part of the brain that processes emotions. Many people who have these seizures experience odd feelings — ranging from euphoria to fear — at the onset of their seizures. Because it's typically localized to one part of the brain, temporal lobe seizure is classified as a type of complex partial seizure. The temporal lobes lie along the sides of your head, just above your ears.
764912 tn?1322715443 Hi tracy sounds like a seizure doesnt it. Are you still in the Mayo? So your symptoms are not stroke related which I suppose is something but if not a stroke then what is the question. I was worried about you but glad you have posted.
620877 tn?1282767697 My journey began about 5 years ago with intermittent muscle stiffness in my left hip. Doctors didn't know what was causing it - so off to PT I went. The PT made it worse, although the stretching seemed to help. After 3 months of PT I was frustrated by no progress/more pain. I went to a low force chiropractor, who after about 6 visits gave me some relief.
