Seizure symptoms warning signs

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms warning signs


Avatar n tn Since you are new to this, the best advise I can give you is to learn the warning signs of when his glucose level is getting low. That way, you will be able to recognize it in time to get him food/drink. It takes a lot of practice and it's definitely a scary thing because it's horrible to watch someone having a seizure. Anyway, my opinion is that your husband didn't get to the point of actually having a seizure but rather the stages leading up to it. I hope this helps!
Avatar n tn Then, about 6 weeks ago, I woke up staring into the faces of about 8 paramedics. I had a grand mal seizure in my sleep with absolutely no warning. So---please be careful. I am just glad it did not happen while I was driving my kids down the road. Now, I can't drive for 6 months. Better safe than sorry.
Avatar n tn Lack of glucose energy to the brain can cause symptoms ranging from headache, mild confusion, and abnormal behavior, to loss of consciousness, seizure, and coma. Severe hypoglycemia can cause death. Symptoms of hypoglycemia occur at different levels of blood glucose in different patients. In most healthy individuals, symptoms of hypoglycemia may not occur until the glucose level drops below 45 mg/dl.
Avatar f tn They go their whole lives with no symptoms and then one day the heart can suddenly fail,without any warning at all,no prior symptoms. While it may be no comfort to you if this was what happened to your beloved boy he had no pain and it was all over before he even knew anything was wrong...snap your fingers and for him it would've been this quick. RUN FREE LITTLE MAN....
Avatar m tn She gets a feeling about 30 seconds to 2 minutes before she becomes unconscious and unresponsive. These warning signs before hand are lightheadedness, dizziness and blurred vision. When she becomes unconscious she is unresponsive for anywhere from 15- 22 minutes. During this time her eyes are rolled back in her head, her face becomes bright red, her hands are ice cold and her body is twitching. She has had some cardiology work ups, including ecg and echocardiogram all came back clear.
Avatar f tn There are myoclonic seizures that are progressive and Jacksonian seizures start in a limb. Sounds like seizure activity, but make a log of the symptoms, activities, food, etc. This can help, MD figure things out. Sleeping alot after a seizure is normal. I have known people who sleep alot during the day to have sleep apnea and develop seizures from lack of oxygen during the night... Important to get a work up in addition to your thyroid workup.
Avatar f tn what are the symptoms of epilepsy and are there any warning signs? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/894351'>EEG</a>.
Avatar m tn * The symptoms and early warning signs to prevent a diabetic seizure? * Does your BF have a home glucose test meter? Know the proper testing times? Know the normal test values? * When feeling the onset of a seizure has he/you tested his blood sugar levels? * Does he understand and follow a strict diabetes control and management - diet, weight, exercise? These are items an Endo can go over with him and you to help get his diabetes under better control.
Avatar n tn I agree with scarlet; all those symptoms sound like classic signs of epileptic seizures. Vertigo is simply severe dizziness and is usually inner-ear based. I've never heard of vertigo causing the neurological symptoms your child seems to suffer from.
Avatar f tn Unfortunatelt some lows do come without warning. last week dropped to 39. i have been that low beefore with no signs or symptoms. last week i did have related seizure. first time ever in my hx that a seizure was observed. is there something that would have added to that. now i am terrified of having hypo related seizure activity. any input?
Avatar n tn I had a traumatic head injury in 2001. I had a seizure that brought me back to life and I was paralyzed for a short time. Since then, I have gotten these cold shivers that start at the base of my neck. The shivers have an icy hot sensation and my whole body shakes, primarily on the right side where I was paralyzed. Could these shivers be a warning sign of MS? My grandmother had MS as well.

Avatar f tn My mother didn't believe it because our dog was absolutely fine all day and showed no symptoms/signs at any point. She thought my father was joking which was not a normal joke for him to say. He repeated our dog's passing after touching him. Our dog was still warm and felt life-like but he was limp with no breathing. My father believes it was a heart-attack.
Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar m tn Alcohol withdrawal, excess caffeine, THC for some people, and a variety of medications can lower seizure threshold.... Warning signs for seizures... fear/panic, tingling, strange feelings, etc.. So, no need to panic, just back off the questionable stuff you don't have to take and learn about the way your body works. Better to know ahead of time than be caught thinking "oops, I wish I had known....
677292 tn?1226291236 At the time she exhibited some signs and symptoms that pointed towards stroke, but her story just didn't necessarily gel altogether (I'm an ex Paramedic). Unfortunately my Daughter at times struggles with the truth, she lives with my ex wife in another State. The end result that time after a battery of tests, including CT's and MRI's was that nothing showed up, my Daughter's symptoms resolved after 2-3 weeks and life progressed.
Avatar n tn Some of what I have read here leads me to believe that a TIA is a stroke that totally reverses itself and all symptoms go away within 24 hrs. Other postings indicate that if symptoms continue or periodically return, then that is an indication that it was more than just a TIA or that there are continuing problems.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn How likely is it that he is in bad danger of having a seizure when something comes up and he can't get drunk 1 night? Will warning signs preceed the seizure? For instance will he be jittering and shaking, sweating all the stuff you read about before this comes on, or can he just instantly have a seizure? I thought the seizure and DT thing was more for people who have been drinking daily all throughout their 20's and 30's decide to stop in their 40's without help.
Avatar n tn I do not know if low blood pressure can cause them I would suggest that you contact your PCP and ask him /her to do tests to find out what is wrong.
327385 tn?1378364331 he dont have any signs of epilesy , other than the nose bleed and blacking out. i do have warning signs, i have really learned mine. i can perdict my seizures 80% of the time.i have them in my sleep sometimes . i will have him checked out by a neuro. i have a question about my last seizure,i posted last week it got lost. my seizures has changed after my crainotomy. i was asleep on the couch and i had one , my husband said it lasted about 5min and i was out for about 15min.
Avatar n tn Anyone who has experienced an episode of hypoglycemia describes a sense of urgency to eat and resolve the symptoms. And, that's exactly the point of these symptoms. They act as warning signs. At this level, the brain still can access circulating blood glucose for fuel. The symptoms provide a person the opportunity to raise blood glucose levels before the brain is affected.
Avatar n tn Also some people have warning signs before they have a seizure, letting them know that something is up. So that maybe what your son's tummy aches are, his warning. My dad rolls his eyes to the top of the lid, not all the way back but as far up as they can get without being rolled back. Good luck, that is horrible for a two year old to go through. I am the mother of a 4 year old, and I have a lot of sympathy for you and him. Hopefully they aren't seizures and he will be fine. Good luck!
Avatar m tn now if i get deja vu i know its a warning sign a seizure is comming. i get the tengling feeling something like cold chills under my scalp. sometimes i get so sick to my stomach it feels so real. i just wanted to share my symptoms as someone with epilepsy. i use to have all my seizures while i was sleeping , now i have them while im awake. have you ever woke up sore and so tired you just cant hardley move? deja vu is just 1 of my warning signs. im not saying you have epilepsy ,just my experance.
Avatar n tn Smelling a certain smell prior to an event of 'death stare' is a common description of a complex partial seizure (a seizure that starts focally in the brain). Other things that suggest seizures is that you were tired and had trouble walking after the event, and the fact that the spells were apparently treated with topamax. I would suggest a 2 hour sleep deprived EEG (electro-encephalogram-brain wave test) to look for signs that would suggest a focal epilepsy.
2030686 tn?1351692148 The eye dr also said that my eye symptoms were probably signs of blood pressure issues. My biggest fear is the long term sx. I took Lupron shots for 6 months in 1995(?) and still have issues. My husband is not gonna tested until he has insurance because he doesn't want to have a pre-existing condition. What if I achieve SVR and he has it and gives it back to me? Then it was all for nothing. At the same time, what if he is clear now, and I give it to him later?
Avatar n tn and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. TIAs are often warning signs that a person is at risk for a more serious and debilitating stroke. About one-third of those who have a TIA will have an acute stroke some time in the future. Many strokes can be prevented by heeding the warning signs of TIAs and treating underlying risk factors.
Avatar n tn This cannot substitute for a formal neurological evaluation but the episode sounds suspicious for a 'TIA' - transient ischemic attack', in reality, a mini-stroke. We are recognising that TIAs now can be warning signs for a bigger, permament stroke - hence there is now a reconiseg need to TIAs to be evaluated as soon as possible - MRI, blood brain and neck vessel evaluation, and evaluation of stroke risk factors, and need for blood thinners to prevent blood clots in someone who is at risk.
82861 tn?1333457511 My nephew Alex is 6 years old and has suffered terribly with epilepsy since before two years of age. There were some odd signs that something was amiss since the day he was born. He would occasionally "space out" for a few seconds and then go back to being his typically curious and active self. No harm done. The pediatrician thought nothing of it so life went on. Just before he turned 2, a rash of grand mal seizures struck.
Avatar n tn They act as warning signs. At this level, the brain still can access circulating blood glucose for fuel. The symptoms provide a person the opportunity to raise blood glucose levels before the brain is affected. If a person does not or cannot respond by eating something to raise blood glucose, the levels of glucose continue to drop. Somewhere in the 50 mg/dl range, most patients progress to neuro-glyco-penic ranges (the brain is not getting enough glucose).
