Seizure symptoms tests

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms tests


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.
963651 tn?1247532514 however this last time i had the usual symptoms fainted and when i came to i couldn't move my body and didn't remember anything or able to recognize my husband finally i was able to move got up and laid on the couch felt extremely tired and finally remembered things one by one i then got up to walk had to sit back down because i was staggering i then relized i was having a hard time breathing this only lasted maybe a minute then i could breath...
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 f tn They should have done the eeg then tho! My dads epilepsy doesn't show in his brain and they said that is a common occurrence in epilepsy patients effecting up to 45% I really hope for yours and the baby's sake they figure things out! Good luck girl my.thoughts are with yu!
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.
Avatar f tn he hasn't seen a neuro in over a year because of frail condition. it will be difficult to have tests done because they will be done in hospital and we can't get him admitted for this alone. he doesn't have a local neuro so we would have to make multiple trips in order to get tests done. when this change in mental status happened, he had had a mild heart attack and was fighting some sort of infection. it has been 2 weeks. the course of antibiotics is over.
1413227 tn?1281798777 Admitted for 3 days, and a series of heart related tests were performed. All tests reflected good health. Follow-up visit with PCP. PCP referred her to oncologist because MGUS protein found in the blood, and also requested MRI of brain. She was prescribed 25mg of Zoloft for anxiety. MRI of brain shows 1 cm right parafalcine meningioma. The meningioma was on top of one of the dural sinuses but does not significantly compress the dural sinus. No other abnormalities.

Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Were you able to have this checked by your doctor? What tests were one? Your symptoms highly suggestive a neurological cause. I recommend that you have this evaluated by a neurologist for proper management. An EEG and complete medical history and direct clinical examination are important. Take care an do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn This morning I awoke with nauesa, which went away after an hour or so and it was replaced with a headache and blurred vision. These were the same symptoms that I had in the hospital shortly after the seizure. All symptoms are gone, other than the blurry vision, which seems worse in my left eye. Should I be concerned about these symptoms? Is it possible that I had another seizure in my sleep and awoke with the normal symptoms?
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 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.
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.
207091 tn?1337713093 Yes, diabetes is one of the tests - there's about 20 tests that she is running. My kitty was totally fine with the fasting - didn't even act hungry, nor did my other cat who also had to fast. I gave them canned food last night, and since I didn't get to vet until 12:30, it was fine. As soon as I put the food back down though - they ate like it had been 3 days lol. Thanks for the help and support - I really, really appreciate it.
Avatar f tn Hello there, Infants may not present with the classical symptoms of seizures. They may manifest with gagging, lip smacking, running, screaming, cycling movements of limbs etc..A physical examination, comprehensive medical evaluation and diagnostic testing are essential for correct diagnosis and management. Diagnostic tests are blood tests, EEG, CT scan etc.Only a Pediatric neurologist ca n help in diagnosing your child’s problem. See an experienced neurologist and discuss your concerns.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms suggest absence seizure but this has to be corroborated by EEG findings.Were any blood tests were undertaken?
Avatar n tn Spinal x-ray, blood tests and urine tests are normal. Tested negative for lymes disease. The two vets I've taken him to are stumped. They've tired anti-inflammatory, steroids and antibiotics. Nothing has helped. He seemed to get very sick from the steriod until its effects wore off. My husband is extremely ill with a terminal illness and I cannot leave him to run this dog from vet to vet, nor spend the money right now on extra tests. Could these be petit mal seizures?
Avatar n tn Our child was diagnosed with ADHD, TS, and Seizure Disorder. Our child does have facial twitching, shoulder shrugs, and various other things, as well as ADD symptoms like daydreaming in class, not completing assignments, being forgetful, etc. I could list them all but I'm sure that's really necessary. They did an EEG and blood work and urine tests to rule out other things such as lead and copper and such.
Avatar n tn had what she thought was a seizure. She went immediately to her GP who referred her to a hospitalwith a pediatric neurology dept. Symptoms: arm flailing, back stiffening and grimacing lasting about 10 seconds. He only had this once. My sister called me back today and informed me that the hospital had done an MRI, blood tests. EEG is scheduled today and they want to do a spinal tap. The baby is not febrile nor has he been. No other symptoms have presented.
1745492 tn?1320201940 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 n tn Because he had a seizure almost an hour after the accident, how likely is he to have a subsequent seizure, and during what time frame would it most likely occur? Thank you for this service.
Avatar f tn I have been having a seizure like problem. It only happens when I walk or run. I had it once in a while in high school, never got it checked out. But it has gotten worse after the 4th of july 2010. I suffered heat exhaustion was rushed to the ER by ambulance, took me over three weeks to recover from that. But since then my seizure like problems have happened more and more. I haven't the seizure thing since about 9th grade, I have been out of school for over 5years now.
Avatar n tn My question is multi, does this sound like a seizure? No one so far is is familiar with these symptoms. We are following up with a flight physician and I would like to know what to expect. Also could this be a one-time thing? With his career he will never fly again as a pilot if this is seizures. I'm trying to prepare and educate myself so I can be strong for him.
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.
Avatar f tn None of my doctors know what is going on or why they are happening. All the tests are negative, yet the symptoms are very real. The only time I do not have symptoms is while I am asleep or if I am intently concentrating on a task. So none of this makes any sense. The doctors say they do not even think it is dystonia, nothing totally fits. I am completely concious during an attack and aware of my surroundings, I am just unable to control my body.
Avatar f tn My sister had her first seizure last night. She is obese, hypertension and RA. She is on multiple meds for each condition with a new one added in the last three weeks. Enbrel. She was diagnosed years ago with pseudotumor cerebri, but has not had any trouble with it as far as anyone knows. Could this new seizure be due to a recurrence of PTC? She does have an appt. with a neurologist tomorrow, but am just curious. Thank you for your quick response.
Avatar m tn It doesn't sound like a generalized seizure, you would have lost consciousness. SVT would not cause a seizure either. There is probably important information in the EKG strips in how your SVT responded to adenosine. That will help determine if this was sinus tachycardia (normal tachycardia) versus some other mechanism of SVT. Adenosine is known to transiently make you feel terrible with chest pains and shortness of breath.
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.
