401370 tn?1233328282 However, you are still here, and thank GOD! Go to a physician and get his opinion on the matter- when someone is having a seizure, you are to NOT try and shake them or anything else that could promote injury.. instead, you are to turn them to their side, place something soft by their teeth so they don't break their teeth nor bite their tongue, etc etc etc.. What are those guards, retards or what?? Don't get ME started!
Avatar n tn Depakote (causes weight gain),Dilantin (gum, liver problems) Lamictal (rare severe rash), and Topamax (kidney stones)are meds that can possibly help depending on what kind of seizure you have. At this age, we would think of a condition called juvenile myoclonic epilepsy which is a syndrome composed of grand mal, absence (brief sparing spells), and myoclonic (jerks especially in the morning on waking) seizures.
Avatar n tn Your seizure looks like a simple partial seizure. The second seizure was probably an absence seizure. And this latest incidence can very well be an absence seizure. Did you fall on the sofa ? But it is uncommon to have absence seizures at this age. A syncope may be brought on by a sudden intense pain. But you will not have the various dream like experiences during a syncope (fainting). I would say this was an absence seizure.
316350 tn?1193628295 it took me 5 years o get someoneto listen to me. the de a vu part of your seizure is seizure actiity, not just an aura. i had a normal MRI and an abnormal EEG. you need to have a video EEG in the WORST WAY! go to an epileptologist. i vented to mine about how long it took me to get a diagnosis even after i'd told many doctors.. he said "well if all you have in your toolbox is a screwdriver..." look up 'temporal lobe seizures and de ja vu' on the internet.
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome, Your still in your teens so it's unlikely to be PPMS, the average diagnostic age is in the 40-50 age group because PPMS causes a 'slow' disease progression and it usually takes decades before the accumulative affects become evident. Theoretically for your age you'd still be withing the age range of pediatric MS, even rarer than PPMS but the diagnostic rules of RRMS would still apply....
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 I didn't watch the video, but by reading your description, what I can say is that often seizures or other conditions can be shown differently in children so young, and 6 months would be around the age you might start to notice something abnormal. Types of epilepsy can be described as the description you gave, but keep in mind, no one here can diagnose as we cannot do a physical exam on your son or order necessary tests.
Avatar f tn It has been two days since his last seizure but he still hasn't fully recovered, he doesn't know his commands, the people in the house ( including me ), or the other dogs and cats in the house. I want to know if he will even recover from this or if there is something I can do to help. He keeps pacing and whining, even in the middle of the night. Should I bring him in again? Could there be something more serious going on?
Avatar n tn Convulsions in your son do not look like as febrile seizures, but EEG is reported normal which goes with diagnosis of febrile seizure. Febrile seizure is uncommon after 6 years of age, but not absolute. Video EEG precise characterization of seizure types, which allows for specific medical or surgical management. In addition, the physician is more accurately able to differentiate epileptic seizures from paroxysmal events that mimic seizures, including pseudo seizures.
Avatar n tn Migraine headaches can be associated with epilepsy. They can either come before or after the seizure event. These types of headaches are temporally related to the seizure event and for the most part do not occur without the seizure event.
Avatar n tn Right now I am running to so many different types of dr.'s in a quest to find out why I am having syncope. I have been diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope (2yrs. ago) and I am being treated for that with beta blocker and salt tabs, but the fainting is still occurring and in a seated position and one had the appearance of a seizure. They have found evidence of a stroke on 2 MRI's (the 1st being 2 yrs.
328328 tn?1261682204 I don't do any drugs, just a drink once in a blue moon. My son is 2 now and has had a seizure type attack. He has had them off and on (about 4) since the about 9m old. The first was a vaccume started it. The second was he got in the tub. Nothing sets if off (noise,bang head, etc.) Hes awake and standing, he first screams like he got hurt, he has little control of his body. I hold him his heart is racing to fast, his eyes move back and forth, (both at the same time).
Avatar n tn I had one additional seizure a month later - I had allergic reactions to the medication and they believe the withdrawl from the medicine caused the seizure. I haven't had a seizure since then. I just stopped taking my anti-seizure medicine this past January and haven't had any problems. My dr.told me that it wasn't that I just all of a sudden got epilepsy, but that the conditions were "right" at that time. I was stressed, working long hours and even drinking occasionally.
Avatar n tn is it uncommon for a child of her age to develop a seizure disorder and are there specific types of seizure disorders that pop up at her age? I am very worried and a bit short on answers right now. Thanks for any general info you can provide.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with complicated migraine at the Cleveland Clinic at age 34. My best friend also has the condition, diagnosed in her 30s. I am now age 53 and have been on a variety of medications over the years. It is a very REAL condition which does cause TIA and stroke. Australia has studied it more than US doctors. I also have vasospasm disease which causes angina (since my 40s) which Dr. Eric Topel Cleveland Clinic believes is related to the migraines.
Avatar f tn This type of seizure usually lasts 2-4 minutes and involves the temporal lobes of the brain, but may also affect the frontal and parietal lobes. If either of these types of seizure spreads to involve the whole brain, your seizure is called a secondarily generalized seizure. The more I looked over the artical - my gut says to get an MRI. If you looked over your TSH readings and they seem to be irratic - definately a check on the pitutiary would be good.
Avatar n tn Thanks for both your responses! I spoke with his neurologist and he is now convinced that it was a seizure brought on by a change in his blood sugars. While 75 WAS NOT typically low for him, since the day following this he has needed an additional 5-10 units in insulin in the morning and evening. I originally thought that the higher blood sugar was because he was stuck in a bed and tried to get his excersise and what not.
Avatar f tn What is the type of seizures, focal or generalized? How long was the seizure and was there loss of consciousness during seizure? How was his behavior during and after seizure? What all investigation has been done? What is the level of Serum. Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorous and Serum. Sodium in his body? What is the level of sugars? There are seizures which are focal in origin; hence they occur in particular part of body. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
Avatar f tn Someone would definitely notice with seizures whether you (most types) or someone else (again most types, but also the absence seizure, which you yourself might not). You could also bring up the bipolar disorder in a visit with your general practitioner, and he or she could help you discuss it with the adoptive parent who is there.
Avatar n tn (maybe cause was fell down of bicycle and to be so naughty child).no one had szr in my family before. i tried many types of drugs recommended by my dr. for my epilepsy. but even by drugs seizure happens to me from time to time ,approximately every 3 month (or every 6 months)and specially in my period time it occurs.but it is about 1 year i kept myself out of stress (take rest at home,no work outside)and about 1 year no seizure. (explaining no work cause no concentration and loss of memory!
Avatar m tn These are the only types of tests that can absolutely show if you have epilepsy or not. You may have had a seizure just from smoking drugs. But you'd better have it checked out to be sure. My 7.5 yr old son takes seizures and has a rare form of epilepsy. It is not a fun way to live your life. If you value your life at all, then you need to stop drinking and smoking all together. Go to school and become a doctor, lawyer, or whatever you want to be. Drugs will screw up your entire life.
Avatar m tn She is also of the same age (9 years and 10 months) and has been diagnosed with 's/o genralised epilepsy' by her neuro who did a hour long sleep deprived VEEG on her only this month. Her brain MRI with Contrast is absolutely normal.
Avatar n tn medical history--had a very high fever and vomiting for many days at about age 3(?), tonsils out at age 7, a car accident w/a major blow to the head at age 17 (10/79--concussion, loss of consciousness for an unknown amount of time, 1 hour?), lots of parental physical abuse that included contact with the head and shaking-- from toddler age (or younger?

Avatar n tn but one day i got drunk and blacked-out and woke up with a terrible hangover, and i had what i believe now was a mild seizure. Basically every time after that, that i drank i would black out and not remember really anything from that night and i would wake up to a hangover and seizure. during the black-outs i behave like a normal person, but not like myself. I would be more aggressive, angry and i would have bad judgment (i would be very gullible), then i would pass out and go to sleep.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor The diagnosis of epilepsy and seizure disorder are not mutually exclusive. True seizure events are abnormal hypersynchronous firing of cortical neurons. These events are induced by extracellualr IPSPs or EPSPs. These firings would be detected on a brain wave test called EEG. There is a type of seizure disorder that is not epileptic. This type is called pseudoseizures. The seizure event in this case is not induce by abnormal brain hypersynchrony of cortical neurons.

1098760 tn?1266451497 there are also many different types of seizures (see below). Those affected may have one or more types of seizures, which may vary in severity and frequency. * "Generalized seizures" affect both sides of the brain. * "Localized seizures" or "partial seizures" affect one part of the brain. Partial seizures are the most common form of seizure in adults, affecting 6 out of 10 people with epilepsy. * Epilepsy is NOT a "mental illness.
Avatar f tn My son was diagnosed with epilepsy this year, his first one was in September of last year and was not diagnosed then. In April of this year he had his second seizure in school and was diagnosed to be epileptic. He has had all types of tests and everything has come back normal except his EEG they found spikes in his brainwaves. I'm very confused because he was a normal child, I don't know why this is happening, my son is growing very rapidly he is age 13 now and is 5'10 weighing 195.
