Avatar n tn I'm not sure if seizure disorder and epilepsy are the same these days? I'm a 43 year old female, no history of seizures, 2 year survivor of breast cancer, which made the discovery of benign cysts in my left temporal lobe. 6 months ago I started having severe headaches with almost stroke like symptoms with neurological deficits associated with them as well as an elevation in my stress levels. All my doctors tell me I have more stress in my life than they've seen in a while.
1000946 tn?1253811447 I've taken all sorts of anti depressants and meds like lyrica (think these are anti seizure meds) nothing has helped. When I took the vicoden for pain that seemed to be the only thing that helped. I am on no meds at the present time but I'm having a major flare. What is helping other fibro sufferers?
309199 tn?1237504252 ) To answer your question, I’ve only blacked out a few times, and I don’t think it was every connected to my seizures… but that’s because of the types I’m having. Some types of seizures do cause blackouts.
Avatar m tn Not sure if I fainted or had some form of a Seizure as I understand there are several types of Seizures. If anyone could give me their opinion, that would be greatly appreciated. I was laying down on couch watching tv. I was doing nothing abnormal or different throughout the day. I got up from couch walked in the kitchen and collapsed on floor face first, with a slight cut above my eyebrow with my right cheek pressed against floor. I was unconscious for approx 1 minute.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if I should be describing it as a rocking motion. I feel as if its more like a head jerk. He will jerk his head up and down several times. It always starts with him jerking his head back first then forward. It looks as if he is saying yes. 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.
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 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 There isn't alot of information out there on these types of migraines so I just wondered if someone else experiences the same symptoms. I have suffered from headaches since I was a kid, and I am now 31. The seizures didn't start till 5 years ago though, and it is getting progressively worse. My MRI's have been normal, as well as my EEG's, and the spinal tap results got lost and i refuse to have another one.
Avatar n tn I know a young girl that is 15 years old. She has been having "Seizure like episosodes." She has been to ERs, Doctors, Neurologists, had several tests and no one has been able to completely identify what is worng. She had eegs, ekgs, catscans along with others. Her eeg came back abnormal. Last spring she was struck in the center top of the head with a bat while playing softball. Her ears began rining and she almost passed out later that day. The next day she had her first episode.
393986 tn?1303829575 Hello. A seizure is defined as an episode of central nervous system dysfunction. A seizure may or may not be accompanied by convulsions. Your seizures are unusual. Do you lose consciousness when you have the episode? usually convulsions are tonic (only spasms) or tonic - clonic (spasms followed by repeated contractions). An EEG confirms a seizure. Has it been done?
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 f tn Valproic acid is used alone or with other medications to treat certain types of seizure I know you are worried and afraid for your daughter. I have no advice about what to do, just wanted you to know I am hoping all goes well and I am so sorry about it all.
Avatar n tn A relative had a syncope episode two months ago - skull fracture and severe head trauma. recovering fine. Neurologist is determined that it was caused by a seizure even though hospital neurologist and neuro=surgeon felt there were no clues to determine cause. Neurologist choice of AEM is keppra even though cost is prohibitive = $15.+ plus per day, not covered by his insurance. Neurologist keeps repeat EEG, would the TTT with EEG or a holter monitor be a choice.?
Avatar n tn when my mother was younger she fell asleep at the movies, then realized she had fallen asleep. Upon awaking, she banged her head on the crossbar of her jeep and was knocked out for a little while. ever since then, during menstration, if she wakes up from a deep sleep, she usually has a seizure. now that she is in her menopause stage, she has it more often when she comes out of a deep sleep. this only happens when sleeping or sometimes dozing off into a sleep then waking up.
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 My question is, what is a gran mall (spelling?) seizure? This is what happened to him and as he was falling he hit his head; now to give you a little background; he was having trouble with getting a lot of reactions due to (I'm sure) not being able to eat as he should. He just started using a pump. We figure he had a slight seizure and was sick to his stomach, recovered and then went to refrigerator to get something to stabilize his blood sugar and thats when he had gran mall.
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 f tn At this point I will pass out, and have what observers describe as a seizure, however I am not 100% sure what it is. It is definitely a convulsion or spasm, and usually only happens in my hands, or arms and legs, and lasts about 3 min or less. When that stops and I am responsive again, I am completely out of it, and I will start to heave and eventually vomit although there have been times when I never vomit, just heave. I feel sweaty, and I am extremely pale.
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).
911669 tn?1294102788 Last night while asleep I think I might have had a small seizure. I must have bit the end of my tongue very hard. I remember it hurt so bad I thought to myself I did some damage, but I was really still asleep. There was no injury, but I am concerned that I might be starting with some type of seizures. I do tend to sleep with my mouth open sometimes I know, but for my tongue to be protruding out suggests something more sinister to me.
Avatar f tn Hi, my 17 yro son was found last week, on the ground, across the street from his HS. Apparently he was having a severe Grand Mal Seizure. EMS reported he had been seizing for at least 15 minutes. Verset was administered to stop his seizing. However, he has a history of neg reaction to Versed as well as many other medications. This is due to a medobolic disorder, which causes various reactions and poor metabolizing of all drug's.
1211508 tn?1343083205 Last night as I was going to bed after a very tiring day with little sleep the night before, right as I fell asleep I jerked violently (my head lifted forward off the pillow in a jerk-like quick motion). There was also a loud almost ring in my head. Then I woke up. Felt normal. Could that have been a seizure? I'm 39 and I've never had epilepsy or a seizure before. I've "jerked" upon falling asleep before...
Avatar n tn I seemed to outgrow them again, but hit my head several times in a car accident at 17 yoa. and I began having seizures again. I stopped having seizures in 1983 and have not been medicated since 1989. However, I have been suffering migraines ever since I stopped having seizures. Some years I have no migraines at all, sometimes 3-4 a year, and this year...I have had too many to count (5 just this month). I am seeing a doctor and we are trying various things (Relpax worked for my last migraine).
Avatar n tn are there types of seizures where you have legs, arms and head both sides spasming (flailing around uncontrollably) but cognitively be able to know what is happening just unable to do anything kind of like your along for the ride your body is on. Vision is like you are in a dark tunnel with a small square television screen where you have view of what's in front of you however the view is very blurry and you can't move your eyes to look around because they are fixed forward.
316189 tn?1193614081 My head hurts in the back where your neck connects to your skull and it's like a pulsating and pressure feeling. Then I get (randomly) a sharp stabbing pain on the right side of my head at the head never hurts anywhere else except under my right eyebrow bone my GP has tried Nadolol, topomax and now verapamil which she just increased to 240 mg...what's going on with this?
Avatar n tn My daughter is 4 and we are just in the beginning stages of epilepsy that began with a seizure in March very similar to what you wrote about. Her first seizure started with vomiting, dazed/disoriented state, urination/bowel movements, unconsciousness, and then convulsions. Our ER visit also resulted in an normal CT, which we were thankful for too!
17568 tn?1424977159 I fell on January 3 and hit my head on a hard surface. I went to the doctor and he said that I had a slight concussion. The next day the area around my eyes began to turn purple. I looked like a racoon. Of course there were headaches, dizziness, concentration problems, sleepiness, balance problems. While my eyes have cleared, I am still experiencing balance problems, headaches, and some concentration problems.
Avatar n tn // It’s also important to visit your doctor if this seizure occurs again or if your headache doesn’t respond to medications or if it’s getting worse for proper evaluation and management. I hope this helps. Take care and please do update us.
Avatar n tn see your doctor because it sounds to me like it could be related to a non-convulsive seizure disorder. in these types of seizures, electrical shocks are sent through your brain. i'm not a genius but that's what it sounds like to me because i have convulsive and non-convulsive seizures. talk to your doctor soon.
