seizure

2108301 tn?1334038850 Although it started out almost like a small seizure, I heard that conscious seizures like the one I think I may have experienced are called simple partial seizures, but it turned out to be more of a panic attack eventually. I had felt slight derealization (or maybe depersonalization, I can never tell the difference) on and off all day, then eventually it hit me hard.
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 I'm not sure if seizure disorder and epilepsy are the same these days? I'm a 43 year old female, no history of seizures, 2 year survivor of breast cancer, which made the discovery of benign cysts in my left temporal lobe. 6 months ago I started having severe headaches with almost stroke like symptoms with neurological deficits associated with them as well as an elevation in my stress levels. All my doctors tell me I have more stress in my life than they've seen in a while.
Avatar n tn When I was in my neurologist's office for these results she mentioned that she felt I might be depressed and that this might be causing these symptoms. Less than week later I had a petimal seizure in my sleep that required emergency care. I go back to the neurologist in a few days but am stir crazy about what could be going on inside my head. I am taking Topamax to help. I was taking Ativan but could not deal with how "slow" it made me feel.
Avatar n tn My thoughts are possibly Simple Partial Seizures leading into a Complex Partial Seizure. However; she still has a lot of symptoms of Psychogenic Seizures and somewhat of a Secondary Generalized Seizure. The biggest factor that throws me off is the duration of these “attacks.” Please, what are your thoughts or opinions on this case? If you have any more questions of detail, please let me know, Thank You.
Avatar n tn 00 a.m. every night. Are these symptoms that will help me identify that a seizure might be coming on? Yesterday after the night of the last seizure, I felt completely back to normal. I was tired but was no longer disoriented, I was sleeping and my mood was stabilized. I need help understanding all of this. For those who have had seizures, you understand how terrifying it is to have one and to figure out why????? Why did the Lamictal not work??? Thanks and I look forward to your response.
220917 tn?1309788081 No one has ever seen me have a seizure. I take Topamax, which is an anti-seizure medication, for my migraines, daily. I know I skipped a dose this week. I've done that a kajillion times. I usually go to bed VERY early. 9:00 -10-30 range, because of my fatigue, and I usually nap briefly during the day. I did take my nap, but last night, I was just sick of being sick, and stayed up WAY too late. 1:00. I really was overly tired.
Avatar m tn Last monday, my nine year old shih tzu, Stitch, had a seizure. First time ever. We took him to the local vet, they did blood work and it only showed that his liver enzymes were higher than normal. Other than that, nothing else showed up. The vet put him on prednisone, a liver pill and an antibiotic, just in case some kind of infection was going on. The first day he didnt eat much, but has steadily eat better and drank.
Avatar f tn Hello thank -you for reading. In december 08 I had a seizure, i guess what would be considered a tonic clonic kind. I experienced another one Feb 12 09. I was sent to a neurologist. I had eeg, sleep eeg and mri. All turned out "normal". From Dec until now I am also having these wierd sensations which are hard to describe..please bear with me. It happens most frequently at night, or im already in bed, although on occasion they happen during the day if im very tired.
Avatar n tn I've written before explaining that my 12yrold started to experience something that could only be explained as "psychic seizures" they last about 5-7 seconds, cause no motor symptoms and she doesn't lose consciousness. She can talk, continue a task and keep walking. She holds her head and says, "here is comes!" To anyone else it just looks like a person with a brief headache. They occur anywhere from 0 to 3 times a day. Her contrast MRI was normal.
Avatar n tn she has no other seizure symptoms and she has no other OCD symptoms. Last month, at the time she had these thoughts at the most, she had trouble falling asleep and when she did, her dreams were vivid. Her menses was off too. I don't know what your OCD is like or if your partials were of a sensory type, but did you ever experience these thoughts? Had your partials ever spread to a complex seizure or grand mal before meds?
Avatar n tn My otherwise healthy 12yrold daughter complained last month of silly memories or flashbacks intruding on her. She would be doing anything, and these thoughts were brief, irrelevant and were recognizable as past events. She was conscious and had no other sensory or motor symptoms. The only other thing going on at that time was that she had trouble falling asleep and her dreams were vivid (not scary). Her menses was late and was strong when it finally came.
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.
1745492 tn?1320201940 Hi there! 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 f tn On the ther hand, patients with complex partial seizures will have abnormal consciousness and may or may not remember any or all of the symptoms or events surrounding the seizure.
Avatar n tn I'm thrilled to read your post! I'm looking for a cause for my problem, and while doctors are currently contemplating a possible heart-related cause, a friend (a doctor) recently suggested "focal seizure" or partial seizure. In the typical list of symptoms of partial seizure, the sufferer is said to be unable to speak or has involuntary movements. That is not me. I remain able to take my pulse and take stock of other symptoms, plus describe what's happening, as it's happening.
1810724 tn?1316936524 So I have been diagnosed with a Seizure disorder almost a year ago. Already been through two different seizure medications and now taking the third. I have tried Depakote ER no help (7 months), Topamax (3 months) and now Gabapentin (1 Week) to control my episodes. Tightness in the chest area with warm sensation that would radiate through both sides left more than right with numbness and tingling feeling.
Avatar m tn One is a simple partial seizure. A simple seizure is the one in which the patient is aware throughout. And partial means, only some body parts show movements. The second one is Sleep paralysis. I was wondering if you have got your EEG done. EEG is a good test to show epileptic discharges in the brain.
594907 tn?1227312764 Well per my own research, per epilepsy.com, an aura is a simple partial seizure. I can't believe how long my question has been posted on this site without a response, Over two months. I do enjoy reading this forum though. I find it interesting and can relate to some of the other symptoms that others go through. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
Avatar f tn I am a 23-year-old female. I think I may have experienced a seizure yesterday for the first time. My symptoms were severe, but not painful, tingling in my arms, legs, and face; and near-inability to open my hands from a semi-clenched position. At one point, just after sitting up from a reclined position, my thighs also shook for a few seconds. While experiencing these symptoms, my emotions were severely heightened, as well--naturally, I was terrified, but I was also crying uncontrollably.
Avatar m tn I didnt have any other pain relief except this lidocaine injection so my reaction was certainly from that. It caused me to have a near seizure or a seizure. My legs started majorly jerking, I started twitching all over. I was left so bad that I couldnt walk after the procedure due to all developing neurological issues. I was stuck in the dentist clinic for up to an hour until I was was able to walk to my car just outside the door.
Avatar n tn There isn't alot of information out there on these types of migraines so I just wondered if someone else experiences the same symptoms. I have suffered from headaches since I was a kid, and I am now 31. The seizures didn't start till 5 years ago though, and it is getting progressively worse. My MRI's have been normal, as well as my EEG's, and the spinal tap results got lost and i refuse to have another one.
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 f tn yes depakote is an anti seizure med. there are many anti-seizure meds. could be that one isnt working for her. was one of the charges for selling xanax? jane tell her it is very important that she be honest with you at this point. tell her that nothing will suprise you. going forward you need to know so you will also know how to proceed. she will be calling soon. it is after dinner.
Avatar n tn says when a h/a occurs with these other symptoms it is a migraine, not a seizure. I am reluctant to accept that, as she looks the same to me-seizure like, whether she has a h/a or not. How do we sort this out?
Avatar m tn I am an EMT, so I strongly believe we are dealing with some sort of seizure activity, and here is why I say this...during the 'episode' he does not respond to ANYTHING you say to him, he justs does what I listed above. Then when the 'episode' ends he gets very confused sometimes (can we say POST ICHTAL?) for up to an hour.
Avatar m tn I felt so strange and still cannot explain it. A lil over a week of being off these meds I had a full blown seizure. I was outside and fell face first on concrete, busting up the left side of my face, convulsing, foaming at the mouth and was clueless as to why I was on the ground. I am still waiting for answers on to why this happened. I have got through the hardest part of getting off the meds, but I am still feeling off. I can't explain the feeling I have in my head/brain.
Avatar m tn hi, what kind of things make seizures worse and more specifically (simple partial seizures). for example computer screen, thirsty, lack of quality sleep, concentrating for periods of time, heat etc and what people feel before they have a seizure like an hour or two before , if anything??
Avatar n tn How can you tell the difference between simple partial seizure (sensory ones) and Alice in Wonderlnd Syndrome the discriptions are so similar???? Please Help with any info I feel so sorry for the little guy!!
Avatar n tn Please find another doctor!!! Not all seizures make you lose conciousness!!! I have had a number of the odd feelings you speak of. I was dx'd with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy; I have simple partial seizures. I never lose conciousness (so far). Find a good neurologist have a EEG done. Keep us posted on what happens.
