Avatar n tn Since he doesn't loose consciousness then it is most likely a 'Partial' seizure disorder. Partial seizures only occurr in a section of the brain. 'Complex Partial' seizures also only occurr in a section of the brain but eplipetics loose consciousness during these seizures. A nuerologists can treat your son for this and prescibe medications that could possibly control his partial seizures. Have your MD refer you to a local nuerologist.

Avatar n tn Hi, I sincerely feel that the symptoms which you’ve described are suggestive of partial seizures and levetiracetam(torleva) is the right drug for the same but I feel that you may not be getting adequate dosage of the same and hence there’s incomplete cure of the symptoms. I think you should discuss with your neurologist regarding increasing the dosage of Torleva which may result in an improvement of your symptoms.
Avatar f tn People with a generalized seizure disorder are usually born with it, while people with partial or complex partial get it sometime during thier life. Generlaized seizures occurr over the entire brain, while complex partial only occurr in a section of the brain. I have complex partial seizures that occurr in my right temporal lobe. They started from a head injury I got when I was three. They occurr only while I'm sleeping.
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 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.
1745492 tn?1320198340 Based on the symptoms shared by you it is possible that you are suffering from simple partial seizures. During simple partial seizures a person is usually wake and full aware about his involuntary movement, there is no loss of consciousness. It usually lasts for a few seconds to a few minutes. They can be caused due to congenital abnormalities, any space occupying lesion, tumor or stroke. I will advise you to schedule an appointment with a neurologist.

Avatar n tn I'm 19 and was diagnosed with epilepsy in September, with complex-partial seizures in the temporal and frontal lobes and also tonic-clonic seizures. I am currently on 1500mg bd Keppra (Levetiracetam). Since November I have had 3 seizures which I had no awareness of that have resulted in incontinence. This had never happened before then.
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 m tn Facial twitching and tics that involve just the face and do not lead to any other seizure behavior are known as partial seizures. They affect only a very isolated region of the face, often just the muzzle, jaw or ear area. Facial seizures can also occur in conjunction with grand mal seizures. Facial seizures during the aura, or earliest, phase of a full body episode are often more severe than a partial seizure episode and gradually increase in intensity.
Avatar f tn I started out a two years ago with having tonic clonic like seizures. I went to a neurologist who tried me on Keppra which worked but I had a bad reaction to it so he took me off of it. Then he tried Dilantin which I was on for a week, but he took me off of it after having one seizure. He did a long term video eeg, but I had no seizures. My eeg was normal so he diagnosed me with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.
Avatar n tn Now Im not a doctor, but from what I understand, partial seizures (those that affect only a part of brain) can cause a multitude of symptoms, ranging from a twitching finger, an odd sensation anywhere, or upset stomach, or deja vu, or blinking lights in peripheral vision, Just depends where seizure originates from in brain and what function of body that part of brain is responsible for.

Avatar m tn what is the difference between a partial seizure (staring/blinking/lip smacking) compared to when it is just normal behavior for a child??? i know what full blown seizures are, the whole body jerky movements, but what about the more simple seizures, how can an observer tell the difference??? also, what about the difference between sleep seizures and just normal sleep twitches??? thanks!!!
Avatar m tn I had a reoccurrence of epilepsy in 1995 after being seizure free after 1962. That is, after 1962 the seizures went away! I suffered a right side brain injury when I was two years old. (I was born in 1951.) Prior to 1962 I would have grand mal seizures and the seizures were controlled by Phenobarbital. The seizures came back in 1995 and I would suffer both grand mal and partial-complex seizures. The seizures were not able to be controlled with medications.
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 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.
