Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms of


Avatar n tn Did you have any symptoms before that? Any history of seizures? Please ask for MRI too. Please keep me updated.
Avatar f tn Namaste, A seizure is the uncontrolled electrical activity in the brain, which may produce a physical convulsion, minor physical signs, thought disturbances, or a combination of symptoms. The type of symptoms and seizures depend on where the abnormal electrical activity takes place in the brain, what its cause is, and such factors as the patient's age and general state of health.
Avatar f tn // What are the symptoms? Have any of you seen the seizures while it is happening? In young patients one should rule out history of injury, neurocystecercosis (tape worm infestation), electrolyte imbalance, tuberculosis, lymphoma etc. Investigations like MRI and EEG are useful in diagnosis.
Avatar m tn Vertigo is the sensation that the room is moving or spinning, or that the person is moving or spinning within the environment. Symptoms are Sensation of spinning, room spinning sensation, Balance problems, Nausea. Any ear disorder or eye disorder can also cause balance instability. There can be cardiac cause to dizziness too and may be he would have suffered a Cardio-pulmonary arrest following an episode of dizziness. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Docorate is a medication approved for treatment of psychiatric symptoms, and not generally used to treat siezures. In many U.S. practices the drill is only to prescribe medications to control siezures after the third documented siezure. That is not to say the medication is innapropriate. There are many unanswered questions regarding the patient's symptoms and general medical status.
Avatar n tn Took her to a doctor and the doctor said it was ways of self pleasure I was like WHAT; things symptons sounds like signs of a seizure. Her hands are not between her legs its just her leg is moving back and forth stiffening up. In need a better answer someone please help me on this.
Avatar f tn Hello. You have done a good job by bringing this to the forum. There is a possibility of a partial seizure. But you should also consider something called as eye tics. These are not so uncommon in infants. You may need to get an EEG done. A video EEG is preferred. It has the advantage of letting us see the brain waves during such an episode or up rolling of eyes. Did he have any significant birth complications?
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 n tn Yes, and they may be more likely to occur during a panic attack if the symptoms of the panic attack (eg. stress) are one of your triggers for a seizure.
Avatar f tn It is important to accurately describe the seizure, timing of the day the seizure occurred and also in what setting. Then the question arises if the seizure should be treated – this is answered by looking at the risk and benefits of having a recurrent seizure and the side effects of the antiepileptics. Ultimately, the workup will need to identify the cause of the seizure. Is it from an intracranial lesion, an epileptic syndrome, stress, etc? You will need to have neuroimaging performed (i.e,.
Avatar m tn If the seizures are not controlled on carbamezapine your patient may need an add on drug for control of his symptoms. I will advise you to seek the opinion of an expert neurologist. If that doesn’t help seek second opinion from an expert on epilepsy at a medical centre. Do keep us posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn There are many times of seizure, and not all of them involve losing consciousness. Did you bite your tongue or wet yourself (I realise this would be hard to tell since you were in the shower)? If so, this is strongly associated with epilepsy. My advice would be to speak to your doctor, get your blood pressure checked and he or she might arrange an EEG (a trace which monitors the electrical activity of the brain) to see if there are any abnormalities. Hope this helped.
Avatar f tn Hi, If you suspect that he had any form of trauma during seizure attack then its better to go for CT/MRI brain.You can consult your pediatrician for adding of phenytoin or phenobarbitone.
Avatar f tn I had all of these symptoms after my first seizure when I was 20, the weakness, tiredness, tingling are all normal, I am afraid. The metallic taste is also normal before you have an episode. As for your MRI scan being abnormal to be honest it will be, your brain has suffered a big shock. As for the result ask your doctor, or even type it in to the internet search box, not only does it explain it but also puts it in normal terms (for us people that aren't doctors). Hope this helps slightly .
Avatar f tn 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?
963651 tn?1247532514 I do not have any of the other symptoms of epilepsy (rigidness, shaking body while passed out, biting of the tongue) so I do not think that I have epilepsy.
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 Call your vet and have him make a note of the episode in your dogs's chart. Make sure you tell him the time of day the seizure happened as well. It may be a one-time occurrence - or not. If the seizures become more commonplace, phenobarbitol is one medication that most vets start with to control them. The key is to document the timing when they happen. I had an old dog who had one known seizure when he turned 12, and that was it.
Avatar n tn Causes of generalized muscle twitches could be dehydration, fatigue, exercise, dietary deficiency, overuse of caffeine, drug abuse of steroids, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spinal muscle atrophy, weak muscles or myopathy. Paraesthesia or tingling is caused by nerve damage or disease.
Avatar f tn Theoretically for your age you'd still be withing the age range of pediatric MS, even rarer than PPMS but the diagnostic rules of RRMS would still apply.... 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).
Avatar f tn There are some that involve staring off and only last a minute or two. Some involved stiffening of the body only. Google seizure types. The only way to tell if it is a true seizures is having an eeg within 24 hours of the seizure, it will show abnormal brain activity. My brothers seizures always show in the right temporal lobe of the brain. His are controlled now with antiseizure meds. If you have seizures pregnancy can make them worse. You need to see a neurologist for proper diagnosis.
Avatar m tn It is possible that the previous episodes may have been a seizure not picked up in EEG. The symptoms are a bit unusual. The stiffening of the body does hint strongly towards a seizure. Let us wait for this EEG report. I guess you will need some anti seizure medication.
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 f tn Does this sound like a symptom of somebody that may be having some type of seizure? Or perhaps the symptoms are for something else? His mother and I are desperate for help and answers. Please let me know what you think about this, and is there something else the mother can do to get help for her son.
Avatar n tn MD states that it is most definitely seizure activity/disorder. His symptoms are so vague, though, that we often don't know when he is having a seizure, or what to do. We only seem to know for sure that he had a seizure after the fact, because he sleeps 3-7 hours. He will sometimes complain of crushing headache, frequently nauseated, sometimes vomit, sometimes blurry vision (?), but never are the symptoms the same from time to time.
Avatar m tn This time, I woke up the second day almost positive that I had some type of seizure either the first day I was detoxing or that night. When I woke up my vision seemed changed- it was blurry and I was blinking constantly in order to maintain clear vision. I also can't help but blank stare constantly. Two days later this hadn't changed. It is a constant problem, not something that goes in and out. How long should this last and is there a reason it did or anything I can do to help it?
3547166 tn?1347817600 A tracker for seizures that can track the times of day episodes occur and how bad the episodes are. Also the type of seizure, seizure clusters, hospital visits, before and after symptoms like sleepiness and headache. Plus medications and changes to medication.
