Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms ms


Avatar f tn Your clear MRI and entire list of symptoms is suggesting that its unlikely to be due to a neurological condition like MS, MS literally means many scars and the symptoms are caused by those brain and or spinal cord lesions (scars). RRMS doesn't typically 'present' with so many different types of issues, your symptoms are generally all over, in all peripherals, unrelated to MS etc and when there isn't any lesions, understandably conditions like MS become very unlikely.....
1810724 tn?1316936524 ) I have always had this problem with motion sickness growing up but notice that it's getting worst. I keep looking up my symptoms and everything points towards the MS and it worrying me. But I don't know much about it. Other issues I have are eye pain, been to the doctor to rule things with my eye out (they found nothing other than my prescriptions keep getting worst), and leg twitching usually as I am trying to get controllable. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have spent the last few days reading everything I could about MS on the net. After familiarizing myself with the symptoms of MS I have two questions. First, what percent of MS patients initially exhibit urinary problems as the first sign or one of the first signs of MS? I ask this because, with two possible exceptions, I don't seem to exhbit any of the typical MS onset symptoms (at least the ones I as a layperson can determine). A quick run down of what I have: 1.
911669 tn?1294102788 I bite my tongue and cheek and break teeth as part of the wrong signals of the MS. My dentists said it is common in MS patients and a mouth guard will help. I am having a molar fixed next week.
Avatar n tn Sometimes when I stand up and begin walking or start walking after standing still my arms and legs will become uncontrollable and twitch very similarly to that of someone with MS. It makes it difficult to walk without falling down, and also causes my mouth to move in ways that make my speech slurred. This only last for a few seconds, then I can walk perfectly fine and talk regularly.
5206664 tn?1365116076 Idiopathic in reference to any condition means the cause isn't apparent. Are you asking for opinions about your symptoms being from MS? Not to be rude..... I'm just not sure.
Avatar f tn LOL Everything I'm experiencing, I took to my doctors BEFORE I knew they were symptoms of ms. I wrote down everything and then organized it and re wrote it, and then wrote it so the doctor could read it. He photocopied it and I kept my copy. It's what I keep to remind myself that, no, I didn't see these things somewhere and then make my mind make my body create those things, somatization disorder. They were there before I knew what they were.
Avatar f tn I was having seizures when I was referred to an MS Specialist and I was diagnosed with MS so even if the GP is concerned that your symptoms may be related to a seizure disorder it is not out of the question for you to be referred to an MS Specialist rather than a Neurologist. This will give you the added comfort in knowing that your MRI is being read by a doctor with the education and experience to possibly see something that a Neurologist wouldn't.
Avatar n tn I am really confused with my ongoing symptoms and would like any advice or direction. These last few weeks have seemed like an eternity and I am still awaiting answers. A few weeks ago I started having some visual changes and felt a little "out of body" while sitting on the couch. I awoke to my husband hovering over me telling me I just had a seizure.
5466288 tn?1410488785 After doing more research,it seems those symptoms can also be caused by MS and other conditions.
220917 tn?1309788081 and a person can still be diagnosed with MS based on other test results and/or history of symptoms. I have already been diagnosed with MS based on my test results and I am posting the results of my CSF tests in a new thread along with the reference ranges so people with MS that have already had their LP.CSF results (or still waiting for a dx) can compare if they want or it can even help in understanding their own results if no reference ranges were given.

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.
Avatar f tn Was your MRI with and without contrast (in other words, using MS protocol?) Your symptoms certainly sound neurological, but without clinical signs of lesion formation, a neuro won't diagnose you. MS protocol includes an MRI done at 1.5 Tesla or better, and gadolinium contrast administered during the process to pick up active lesions. I always think the anxiety/stress diagnosis is a copout - don't give up! A diagnosis is out there.
Avatar f tn are you saying your coat was already on the floor OR that you actually knew the seizure was coming and placed your coat on the floor before it hit? MS is a disease of the central nervous system, theoretically MS can cause symptoms to develop anywhere and whilst MS is unique to the individual, there is still a pattern of symptom development and what you've described doesn't sound consistent with MS.
Avatar n tn EEG only detects seizures if you have one while connected to the EEG, or if you have inter-ictal(between seizure) spikes). The symptoms of Right sode of the body paresthesias (weird feelings/often tingly) with a subjective feeling of weakness can be a sign of Left parietal dysfunction. The feeling of random pains and headaches could be related to tension, migraine, tumor (although your previous negative MRI makes this less likely), or other stucutral abnormality.
Avatar f tn For MS to be on your list of possible causes, you'd need to have some neurologically abnormal clinical signs that corroborate some of your symptoms being suggestive or consistent of a neurological condition like MS, MS suggestive-consistent brain and or spinal MRI's, and or any additional diagnostic evidence eg LP, VEP etc suggestive or consistent with MS.
Avatar n tn They do other tests to rule out other illnesses which have the same symptoms of MS and there are many. MS is a diagnosis of excluding every other possibility. Also Neurologists Specialize. I had to go to a Neurologist who was an MS Specialist. The other Neurologists did not know how to interpret the tests and symptoms. I am glad you are back on the Trileptal. I know if I miss one dose.
Avatar f tn It has really grown since your last visit in 2007, and the people here are just the greatest group around. Your symptoms do sound a lot like MS, but as Lulu states, there are many mimics out here that show some of the same symptoms. I'm glad to hear the drs are doing an MRI. What is most recommended is an MRI with and with contrast done with MS protocol. Most preferrably on a 3T machine, as this machine is stronger and able to pick up better images.
393986 tn?1303829575 Hello. A seizure is defined as an episode of central nervous system dysfunction. A seizure may or may not be accompanied by convulsions. Your seizures are unusual. Do you lose consciousness when you have the episode? usually convulsions are tonic (only spasms) or tonic - clonic (spasms followed by repeated contractions). An EEG confirms a seizure. Has it been done?
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 n tn My neurolgist diagnosed me with a stroke-related seizure (since the symptoms were coming from the same area of the brain as where I had my stroke) and gave me Depakote which stopped the symptoms almost immediately. I didn't tolerate the Depakote (many side effects) and eventually switched to Neurontin which I have happily taken for 6 months, three times a day. I have no side effects and the Neurontin keeps the symptoms completely in check unless I accidently skip doses.
1448748 tn?1312959808 Im taking lamictal to try and see if it helps with neuropathic pain, I am not diagnosed with ms,actually just started to look at the possibility last week due to vision issues and normal eye exam. Well my doc said to stop taking my lamictal to see if it helped with my vision issues and if vision issues persist then test for ms.
Avatar f tn How can this come up at age 34? Also. I had originally thought my symptoms were hormal. Hotflashes, warm tingling feelings, wave sensations. I was on the pill for several years. I stopped the pill and the symptoms seemed to become less. How could the pill hormones contribute to the seizure symtpoms? Thanks for your help!
Avatar n tn Yeah... I get so........ tired of this merry-go-round too sometimes.. (as you can tell by my last post!) I too am laying low for awhile... Thanks again & Hang in there -- this is coming from someone who really empathizes...
Avatar n tn Afterwards I feel shaky and my toes and left arm a re usually a little tingly. All of my other symptoms have gotten worse as well since the seizure. The insides of my calves often have a tearing/pinching like feeling. My heels are tingly a lot, joints hurt, headaches (sometimes just my eyeballs hurt-it's weird), I could go on. My doctor said she doesn't know why I had a grand-mal seizure. She says some of these symptoms can be brought on my "stress". I am not a depressed person.
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...
