Common Questions and Answers about Seizure symptoms wikipedia


Avatar n tn After complaining to my doctor of my symptoms - tremors, vision blurred, muscle cramps, sweating....etc, he did bloodwork and found that my TSH level was .002. I have been on seizure meds (clonazepam) for ten years. I have been reading that this class of drugs can cause thyroid damage. Anyone have any comments on this?
486038 tn?1300066967 I think a lot of people don't report the simple partial seizure (which is what Elizabeth is having) because it feels so weird. We have so many weird symptoms that the SPS is just another one on the pile. Basically, a simple partial seizure starts with an awareness that something is wrong. The light might look weird, or everything looks too bright. Sometimes the light feels like it's leaking into my brain! Then this weird, tight feeling starts in the abdomen.

Avatar m tn 45 days and still not ok????!!!!! Please somebody tell me that this is not true, I can't stand these symptoms that long!!!
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 f tn So sorry you have these migraines. I seem to have them before a seizure. This is one of the things I found..From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The postictal state is the altered state of consciousness that a person enters after experiencing an epileptic seizure, such as those occurring with frontal lobe epilepsy.
Avatar m tn hello dear and welcome to the medhelp forum. I understand your anxiety about the muscle twitching. Clonazepam is known to cause drowsiness and lack of muscle coordination as side effect. There are some rare effects also like uncontrolled body movement and twitching which can be distressful. this is a anti anxiety/anti convulsant of benzodiazepine group and your doctor prescribed you once he deemed that the beneficial effect dominates the anticipated and possible side effects.
Avatar f tn From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Transient ischemic attack A transient ischemic attack (TIA, often colloquially referred to as “mini stroke”) is caused by the changes in the blood supply to a particular area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that persists, by definition, for less than 24 hours; if symptoms persist then it is categorized as a stroke.[1] Symptoms vary widely from person to person, depending on the area of the brain involved.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your reply. I will compile all the answers to your questions & reply again. I can't remember the dimensions of the cyst on each MRI nor what was reported last. I was due for another MRI past October but my family Dr. has yet to send me -due to the fact he does not believe cysts can cause any problems. Why he has sent me for the follow-up MRI's, I do not know if he doesn not believe there's a problem. However, he did not send me in 2007.
Avatar m tn Could be episodic nystagmus, could be a migraine or seizure variant. It's potentially serious symptoms that needs a serious evaluation.
Avatar f tn This cannot be cured; only the symptoms can be treated. I will be ill for the rest of my life. Also, my memory is still very foggy(short-term and long).I was wondering if anyone else had these, or any other, permanent side-effects from the ECTs. I must add that one needs to research(at length) and discuss with their doctors the pros and cons of ECTs before getting them. I, personally, know they are necessary in some cases. I am just saying explore all other options first.
Avatar f tn I've never had this symptom but I found a condition online called Transient epileptic amnesia on Wikipedia. "During an attack, the person is usually unable to remember things that have happened over the past days or weeks. Sometimes, the memory loss may affect events from much further back in the past. In addition, the individual often finds it difficult to retain new information and may ask the same question, such as "What day is it?
Avatar f tn The pain went away and i felt normal again. 1 month ago i started having a seizure in my sleep and was hospitalized 2 times in one week. They said they were PNES seizures and all my tests came back normal. Since then ive bad seizures every other day that last 2 minutes but im aware of whats going on and i cant speak. Its hard to speak and i start coughing to where i want to throw up.
Avatar f tn I looked up this unique disease on Wikipedia and on it is a link to an article that describes the condition and how it presents, etc. It was published in a neurology journal years ago. Just google the title: The migrant sensory neuritis of Wartenberg. It can also be found on PubMed by entering the above title or just the disease name.
Avatar m tn The treatment is a mix and match of analgesics, anti depressants, anti seizure medications, physical therapy and counseling. You can check this out at the Wikipedia. Consult an internal medicine specialist. The other possibility is severe anemia putting strain on the sternum and ribs to produce more red blood cells. Get your PCP to run tests. If this is the case you would need to consult a hematologist.
Avatar f tn I had just about EVERY symptom on Wikipedia all at one time. now the symptoms are lesser just more annoying if anything. I seriously went loony!
585414 tn?1288944902 Its good to get out and about but regardless of traveling by Access A Ride my physical disability is still severe and it doesn't appear physical but a person is not rational during a seizure either. That is physical. The Vimpat is a good medication for tardive dyskinesia and what they are identifying as tardive psychosis, tardive dysphrenia and tardive dysmentia. I want to be helped. I want to recover. I want others to. That is the right motive.
Avatar n tn Did the headaches occur simultaneously with the other symptoms you experienced? How often do you get these episodes? A seizure disorder is a possibility, especially with this clinical presentation. A vestibular, ocular, or cerebrovascular disorder cannot also be ruled out at this time. It would be advisable to consult a physician as soon as possible for a complete evaluation of your symptoms. Good luck.
Avatar n tn In addition I seem to be going though some UNEXPLAINABLE PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS as well. The only way I can explain what is going on with me is that I periodically experience brief seizures. My ***** nervious system seems to shutdown reading me unable to feel things. It lasts for only a few seconds Then I see flashes of light experience de'ja vu. I know it sounds extreme, but it's not that bad. I'm not imagining it though.
Avatar f tn But I also had what they think was partial seizures and a full seizure - the seizures only occurred only when I slept. I only got the MRI after I had a full grand mal seizure (the seizure was unusual as I can remember most of it ). From the first MRI I had, I was told that I had Chiari and that this condition does not cause any symptoms. Well we all know the answer to that! The theory about my seizures at night was the my CSF was increasing to such a high level at night that I had seizures.
Avatar n tn Without the ability to obtain a history from you and examine you, I cannot comment on a formal diagnosis or treatment plan for your symptoms. However, I will try to provide you with some information regarding this matter. Your boyfriend's clinical history is suggestive of syncope (passing out). There are many different reasons for syncope. Differentials include, Transient Ischemic attacks (TIA), which is a warning sign of a stroke, a stroke itself, or cardiac arrhythmias.
Avatar f tn While on tramadol I experienced two spontaneous shoulder dislocations, a and one grand-mal seizure.....;;;;and the WORST a complete trimalleolar fracture of my ankle doing a relatively simple jump from less than a foot ( Im a prior marathoner and not some uncooordinated type) . I didn't put it all together...because this had never been mentioned and I told all my docs, orthopaedist,, surgeon. I had to have surgery on the ankle...15 screws and three plates, spent a month in the hospital....

886824 tn?1253740254 This attack damages the myelin, which in turn slows down or blocks messages between your brain and the body causing the symptoms of MS. The causes of MS are largely unknown. MS is most likely a multifactorial condition, which means that it involves a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors. It is currently well established that MS also runs in some families.
Avatar f tn can I take something like advil for it...does anyone know? My boys are 11yrs and 6yrs and I am SO afraid of having a just them and I here. So do you think what I am doing is okay and what I am feeling is normal??
413157 tn?1230741605 this is what I read on wikipedia about tramadol as it would pretain to my situation......
Avatar n tn Hi Patti, This has been one of my symptoms for over 10 years. There are alot of medications that the doctor's will try to help relieve these kinds of spasms...and yeah...they HURT. Alot of doctor's use the anti-seizure medicines on the market, because they feel that these are like "muscle seizures." I have a large lesion in my spinal cord and my doctor's feel that this is the cause of my daily leg pain and spasms.
544292 tn?1268886268 Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
1689801 tn?1333986916 Wikipedia does a pretty good job of explaining the technicalities of the terms. I'll give a shot at how I'd explain them. 1. Depends on the person. Some folks loose all sense of touch. Some sense a vibration. I get itching that turns into burning. They are all types of paresthesia (abnormal or altered sensation.) 2. Twitches, tics and myclonus seem to all fall into the same "contract a large group of muscle fibers" type of symptom.
