Seizure types does mean

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure types does mean


Avatar n tn I would, also, like to know what does it mean to have it? Is there a course it usually takes? Oh, and in another recent post (...crazy little things...) you said something about a deep breathing test,can you tell me about it? Also, about a bipap, I thought that was only used for sleep apnea? Here is a repeat of my history: Mitral Valve Prolapse,Mitral Regurg.,Tricuspid Regurg.
Avatar f tn About 95% of the time it occurs while he is on his tummy, although occasionally I've seen him do this while sitting. He does not cry afterwards or do anything with his eyes. In fact after he does this he seems to continue to play normally. I'm very worried and I will be making an appointment with a pediatric neurologist but in the mean time I'm hoping anyone has any insight as to what this can be. He's is developing normally and is on track with all of his milestones.
Avatar n tn I am a 35 yr old female that 2 yrs ago starting having seizure like activity I have had several EEG's and did a 5 day EEG video monitoring. Apparently I was physically having seizures but EEG did not show one. I still physically have seizures or something that looks like a seizure. Mostly I do not loose contiousness however I am not always able to communicate depending on what part of my body is seizing.
Avatar n tn I've been having slight ringing in ears and intermittent headache for the last couple months. The headache or feeling of heaviness would go away without my taking any medication. I would simply lie down and rest for a couple hours and the headache would go away. I would usually get the headache or heavy feeling when I'm stressed out or nervous or having anxiety. What does it mean "major intracranial vascular flow voids are present?" What is FLAIR signal? Result of MRI is below.
Avatar n tn Just because you stay awake and answer questions does not mean this isn't a seizure. Have her discuss this with her parents and primary care physician to see what direction they want to pursue. Good luck.
Avatar f tn she does not have a seizure disorder. I asked if she was taking anything else like benzos and she said she had taken about 5 tabs in the month prior to detoxing. I don't know if I believe that...
Avatar n tn // I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes, and I don't know all the specific of your son's case, so I'm resisting saying exactly what happened to him. But that site does describe the condition pretty well. Again, I'm very sorry for your loss.
911669 tn?1294102788 this can be with enough force to really bite into my tongue and cause bleeding. A Grand Mal - the usual type of seizure associated with tongue-biting, does NOT awaken you with the pain of the bite. After grand mal, the person falls into a "post-ictal" (after seizure) state that can last 30 minutes to several hours. It looks like a deep sleep or a period of deep lethargy and confusion. People do not remember what happened during the seizure nor during the postictal state.
Avatar n tn Good Morning. My 14 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with seizure activity in the left side of her brain after having an EEG. She fainted twice in the spring and after several tests it was determined that she had hypoglycemia. We started feeding her more frequent smaller meals.
Avatar n tn My sister is having seizure like attacks, her whole upper body tenses and disfigures in painful stiffness, the last one reached her legs and feet, while the attack was in progress she also felt cold trickles down her cheeks. These seizures like attacks last an hour or more and she does not lose conscientious and can comprehend all that is happening to her. Neurosurgeon found a small tumor, 7mm between the brain lining and skull bone and assures her that this is not causing the attacks.
Avatar n tn Yes, this is my 8 year old daughters EEG. She has intractible epilepsy (multiple seizure types), developmental delay and behavioral problems. she has extreeme rages ocasionally. It has been a while since we haev seen any. The EEG was done as she was starting the ketogenic diet. We were always told she wasn't a surgical canidate, until this EEG they suggested that if she fails the diet we would go back for more VEEG monitoring.
Avatar n tn The Neurologist said that the MRI showed damage to his occipital lobe, isn't that a problem? I mean, you can't fake that right? Please someone help a distraut mother with a good kid who is being misdiagnosed...
Avatar n tn Are there any statistics on the odds of a repeat seizure after 1 year seizure free, 2 years, 5 years etc? 2. I've had no problems on dilantin, but have been worried about evidence in the literature about risks of cerebral atrophy. How common/serious is this long-term side effect, and does it warrant a look at alternative AEDs. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I got an MRI of my brain and they said it showed some scarring that I should make an appointment with the Neurologist. Does this mean that I have lesions? I can not find much info on scarring. I have never had a seizure or trauma to the head but my head feels pretty heavy right now and a pressure like feeling, on top of the pain. What could this mean?
Avatar m tn Then It was again and this time in July while playing in the school playground at 1250 hrs in the noon she had this 'seizure' wherein her friends reported that all of a sudden she sat quite, and was hitting her thighs and head with both of her arms a few times not very hard, was not able to recognize one of her friends and was complaining of headache.
Avatar n tn Based on the brief report that you provide, it does sound like it was another febrile seizure. Usually with brain tumors (depending on where they are), the patient may have increased reflexes on the opposite side of the body from irritation in the brain rather than decreased reflexes. It seems that your docs are pursuing the cause of his seizures in an appropriate manner.
3119293 tn?1342054132 Those were the days I pop 15-18 ten yellow or blue viks or dones whatever u want to call em. Does anyone still get on here. I want to know what the dates were for you when things starting to change. Your dates for change how long it took I know I took a lot more than the people on this list. Please reply by the way **** these mother ******* pills I got god on my side.
Avatar f tn You may be more likely to have a seizure while taking tramadol if you have a history of seizures or head injury, a metabolic disorder, or if you are taking certain medicines such as antidepressants, muscle relaxers, or medicine for nausea and vomiting. Take tramadol exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take it in larger doses or for longer than recommended by your doctor. Do not take more than 300 milligrams of tramadol in one day.
440728 tn?1234648902 I just want to ask does anyone out there get a sort of trembling in your muscles, and tingling and twitching, even electric shock feelings under the skin, as if they're pulling themselves uptight but can't stop it. Also as if you skin is on fire and burning and itching? It comes on so strong sometimes I feel as if I could burst and it makes me so anxious.
Avatar m tn Does anybody out there know if there's any way to reverse damage Ativan does to your brain? I have been on it for about 10 years...took 1 milligram three times a day.....was taken off them.....but now I have tension headaches ALL THE TIME....any slightest worry or certain...worsens them...I can literally feel the muscles in my brain tighten when this happens. I can't enjoy things I got excited about.....
Avatar n tn Even when I try its all over the map, and most of the time I don't even try. (by try, I mean adjust doses/basal rates I'm on the pump) Blood sugars, I test just to make sure I'm not low. And it appears that other people I know with type 1 D have these wonderful, 80-130 blood sugars most of the time and if they aren't, all they have to do is tweak a few things and boom, right back to their perfect a1c's.What do you guys do when you are going through a rough period with your diabetes?
Avatar f tn ) Does that mean when they go all weird? I don't know what that means lol. xo.
Avatar n tn because they r finding that in some cases the amount of herniation does not mean there r 'nt ne symptoms. when was ur last MRI?...I have seen that some on here had very little herniations and with an onset of symptoms had another MRI to find it grew!!
Avatar f tn Hi you guys! I found this forum in trying to deal with my 3 year dependence on Norco for s/p 2 lumbar laminectomies.... Oh my GOSH! who would have thought that I would become chemically dependent on a perscribed Pain Med??? Not ME! Heck, I have an 'ENDLESS RX" @ only $5.00 FOR 70 10/325 Norco EVERY 10 DAYS. Anyhoos....heres my story (if ya wanna read it).. Lami in 1983 from being a compulsive runner/exerciser; oK, THEN...
Avatar n tn I feel so hopeless even while I’m on here telling people it will get easier I’m not sure if it truly will? Saturday he was in mean mode and nothing I mean nothing mad him happy again I was just about in tears.. I don’t know what to do for him we have tried medications and we have tried this whole classroom thing I’m not sure what is next all I know is I got to get a grip on him before its to late..
1350886 tn?1295670799 He also gave me Invega to take 3mg, but I'm so confused on the seizure part. Does this mean the seizures could become more outward such as a REAL seizure.... I did a little research online but I don't know what to think. I have two second black out's where my brain is still active but I disassociate COMPLETELY and when I come too I can't remember where I am, who I'm with or what we're doing. It really bothers me.
Avatar n tn If your daughter only has seizure during a fever, it is more likely that it is associated with febrile seizures than other types of seizure disorders. The fact that she has had several episodes in the past are evidence enough of her proneness to this condition which is why she still presented with this recently. Knowing that your child is prone to febrile seizures, it would be best to try and treating fevers earlier than usual to prevent such seizures from occurring. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Because it's typically localized to one part of the brain, temporal lobe seizure is classified as a type of complex partial seizure. The temporal lobes lie along the sides of your head, just above your ears. Seizures that begin in those lobes often stem from an anatomical defect or scar. But many temporal lobe seizures have an undetermined cause. These types of seizures affect all age groups.
887324 tn?1241733637 As you mention above, seizures are often followed by prolonged periods of confusion. Seizure threshold (the likelyhood a seizure will occur) is lowered (i.e. seizures are more likely to occur) when a child has fevers, has not slept well, or is otherwise stressed. Besides ensuring proper sleep and nutrition, it is important to understand that when a child has epilepsy, treating him/her with seizure medications is essential, despite the side effects that some seizure medications have.
Avatar f tn It would be great if you can get a complete neurological assessment. Also, seizure disorders can be of various types, some cause generalized seizures while others cause focal seizures. Yes, some of the medications you are on can cause seizures, but whether the medications are a cause of seizure or the seizure is due to traumatic brain injury or due to post-traumatic stress has to be ascertained. You also need a detailed psychiatric assessment as often many of these conditions are associated.
