Avatar n tn My 9 yr old was diagnosed with seizure disorder last week after stress EEG showed multiple abnormal firings in left parietal lobe. 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.

Avatar n tn She was having a MRI during the seizure and the doctors said thet they noticed sme changes but they are not sure what are they. Her condition is rapidly getting worse for last three week's. The symptoms are: muscle spasms choking hand spasms unable to talk sweating during the seizure she doesn't recognize people around her and also during the seizures she writes notes with her left hand (she is right-handed) and all the words are written backwards (but correct).
422425 tn?1307992990 I have never posted in this forum, but I have been having a period of strange seizure like symptoms. Just wondering if anyone on this board has the same thing. I starts out with a pressure in the back of my head, and something like chills. I get really nauseated, and my throat start to gag, and I feel like I am going to pee my pants. It lasts for a minute or two. It happens all the time, I could be reading or lying down and it happens or driving which scares me.

Avatar f tn Since they start off as complex partial then they are treated as a complex partial seizure disorder. Almost every eplileptic with nocurtnal seizures have 'secondary genralized seizures'. Keppra well controls most epileptics with complex partial seizures. I transitioned from Tegretol to Keppra this past Spring and have not had a seizure since then.
Avatar f tn My wife had partial-seizure normally occuring in every 26-28 days once. She is in treatment for almost 2 years now. But not much improvement. Earlier she was on Keppra 500 and now she is in Oxetol150 and for the last 2 months Oxetol 300 twice in a day. She is having headache every day and always sleepy. She got a rash on neck also after some 10 days taking Oxetol (not sure is it due to Oxetol).
Avatar n tn Partial seizures are subdivided into simple partial seizure (in which consciousness is retained); and complex partial seizure (in which consciousness is impaired or lost). Virtually any movement, sensory, or emotional symptom can occur as part of a partial seizure, including complex visual or auditory hallucinations.

Avatar f tn Ten years later in 1985, I went to the Western Neurology Group for special test for Seizures and it came back possitive for Complex Partial Seizures. Complex Partial Seizures and Simply Partial Seizures can act like the Anxiety Disorder as well. So, if a neurologist does not do special test he or she will simply diagnose it as comon Anxiety Disorder instead of what it really is, Epilepsy.
Avatar n tn Since she has urinary incontinence during some episodes, the seizure may have spread to become generalized. But over all it appears to be a complex partial seizure of the right temporo-parietal region .
1745492 tn?1320198340 Psychiatric illness, gastrointestinal conditions or pinched nerves can all cause seizure-like symptoms. Seek professional help. I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and good luck!
Avatar m tn My question lies in the possibility of diagnosing me with a partial simple seizure. 39yr old male in excellent shape with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and mother who died of a stroke as a result of heart disease. My symptoms where involuntary movement in lower left arm in a rotating fashion lasting up to 30 seconds. Then for approx. 5 secs I couldn't move my fingers. Then I got a numb spot in left corner of mouth and tingle on left said of tongue.
Avatar m tn Hello, The partial seizure that you described is a Petit Mal seizure. Go here to read about it: http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone, I am new here, I have been on the MS and Lyme forum but have had some questions regarding the type of seizures that I have. I was dx'd with simple partial seizures after having 5 abnormal EEG's. According to my Neuro. .. the slurred speech that I have had that would last up to two weeks long are a seizure, and that my brain is misfiring and getting stuck for two weeks. Just wondering if any of you have ever heard of that?
Avatar n tn If the symptom is constant it is hard to believe that these symptoms are due to a seizure. However, if it is intermittent it is possible this could represent an aura (or warning sign). You should discuss this with your neurologist and perhaps a repeat EEG (brain wave test) should be performed. If there are still doubts, then consulting an epilepsy specialist is recommended. Good luck.
Avatar f tn This happen when there is an electrical disturbance in a specific area of the brain. Partial seizures are subdivided into simple partial seizure (in which consciousness is retained); and complex partial seizure (in which consciousness is impaired or lost). Virtually any movement, sensory, or emotional symptom can occur as part of a partial seizure, including complex visual or auditory hallucinations.

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 m tn ) I think it worries me a bit as last year I had partial seizure where my leg started failing and collapsing and then my whole left side sort of curled up like a bug over that leg and I couldn’t move. I also had a huge disconnect with that leg. I could see it stumbling and failing but I had no idea why. Like the feedback loop was gone. It lasted a few minutes. I went to the hospital and two neurologists later it was diagnosed as a partial seizure.
Avatar n tn The symptoms upon awakening due not sound like a seizure. If you have concerns perhaps seeing a specialist at an academic center would be reasonable. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Hello and thank-you for taking the time to adress my question. Over the past few months I've been experiencing mood swings. For a week/ 10 days I'll be in a great mood and be very productive and getting mu work done and then suddenly I'll be mooddy and asocial for a week or so and do things like getting drunk and I'll take up smoking again. This pattern has happened about two (maybe three times) in the past few months.
Avatar n tn At the start of January I had a seizure that my sister witnessed which resulted in duel incontinence but she said it had only been a partial seizure. I had one this morning that also resulted in duel incontinence. I have told by my neurologist to keep a seizure diary and have been recording when I've had seizures and what type of seizure I've had.
