Common Questions and Answers about Seizure types images


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 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.
Avatar f tn Ictal headaches, the rare kind that are actually seizure symptoms, will disappear if seizure medicine can control the epilepsy brain waves. The other types of headaches generally must be treated separately from your seizure disorder. Basically there are two medical approaches to treat your headaches. The first approach is to wait until a headache begins and then stop it.
6680290 tn?1383747409 I presume you got here via search using T2 and/or demyelination. T2 is a particular pattern of pulsing used by the machines to produce various types of images, or something like that, if I remember right. Regardless, it's a type of MRI image. Demyelination is a process common in Multiple Sclerosis, but frankly, it sounds to me like this radiologist is reaching for a possible explanation for the information he sees in the images in front of him.
Avatar n tn I Have look in the internet and i can't find anything about this rare anomality. I'm also epileptic with grand mal seizure and every time I have a seizure my heart puonds like crazy. In addition latetly i feel my heart skip a beat. I went to the ER and they told me it was normal. Can you answer my question and give some direction?
1469703 tn?1372045076 Those jerking ones are usually grand mal and there are many different types of seizures the fainting is prob a seizure as well as the vision problems can be as well. Ct scans can be focused it generalized there is a statistic that in detecting things such as tumors, even with contrast is only about 17% accurate . The person that read and analyzed it may not have been looking for something and dismissed a normal and another radiologist can look at the same scan and have diff.
Avatar n tn Thanks for providing such an excellent service! I recently had an enhanced MRI performed following a first time seizure. The MRI was "generalized", and as such, did not focus on a specific area of the brain.
Avatar n tn PLEASE, PLEASE request to have her be seen by a specialist. I cannot imagine this is just a "hormones and lack of sleep" issue. Sounds like some type of seizure. Request a Neurology consult. I know, you may think, a seizure? There are different types other than the one when a person is having a "fit" on the floor. Secondly, any labs and/or tests ordered by the Family Physician/PCP?
335728 tn?1331418012 Luckily, something was kind enough to wake me up to send me to the bathroom, before I got back in bed, fell asleep, and had my seizure. Thus no wet spots. lol Mine were from some idiopathic seizure disorder, which appeared, unprovoked in my mid to late twenties, as psychomotor and complex partial seizures, disappeared for a bit, then reappeared as grand mal, or tonic clonic.
Avatar f tn The ruled out an allergic reaction to seizure meds, deemed it neuropathic, treated it with anti-seizure meds, and left it at that. It was a stabbing, shooting pain in the joint of the mandible, that radiated outward, when i began to drink something, sometimes brought on by other things. My lips itched and burned and were numb, as was my tongue, like shingles. My jaw ached, my skin itched, burned and was numb. The man at the ms society said that was the best description he had heard.

Avatar f tn The T2 FLAIR images demonstrate a discrete area of hypointensity within the right basal ganglia that measures 9mm in maximum diameter. The location and appearance strongly favor a perivascular fluid space that is prominent. There are a few 2 to 3 mm areas of subcortical hyperintensity in the right frontal lobe. These findings are nonspecific but could be associated with small vessel disease. Any help in deciphering this would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn For the past 6 months I have been getting muscle twitches all over my body, even in my tongue! This has led to severe anxiety because I am afraid I am going to have a seizure. I have been taking calcium, magnesium and potassium supplements and they do not seem to help. Sometimes the twitches are so violent they jerk my arm or leg. I also get what I can only describe as a full body tic or jerk at night when I lay down. On nights it happens it will happen quite a bit and wake me sometimes.
Avatar n tn My primary doc referred to a neurologist. I requested the hospital to have all images in a CD to take to a neurologist when I see him a month from now.
Avatar n tn The symptoms of ringing in your ears and violent head shocks associated with visual changes are of unclear etiology, but I would consider trigeminal neuralgia, seizure disorder and possible tumor as likely causes. Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition that causes shocks of pain down one side of the face and is often triggered by contact with skin of the face or sensation around the teeth. This is often treated with medications such as tegretol.
Avatar f tn I think it is supposed to be an anti-seizure drug, but has found much greater use off-label in treating neuropathic pain. I know that my assorted tremors have been less severe since I've been taking this drug, as well.
Avatar n tn At age 14 she began having a type of seizure.One doc said seizure the other said migraine.It was a partial seizure without the jerking with a blindingheadache.This is why we hadMRI and cyst was discovered.I had 2 neurologist & 2 neurosurgeons check her all agreeing to leave the cyst alonethat it was not causing any symptoms.She still has the hearing loss,seizures lasted a year and have since disapeared, she is now 20.
1025903 tn?1251916657 While CT provides good spatial resolution the MRI provides comparable resolution with far better contrast resolution. Another of the great advantages of MRI is the ability to change the contrast of the images. Small changes in the radio waves and the magnetic fields can completely change the contrast of the image. Different contrast settings will highlight different types of tissue.
Avatar f tn My HLA DRB types came back as being positive for one of the dreaded types (likely from my mother who suffers much more than I). There are several (7 I think) but mine is 14-5-52B. You can google it "14-5-52B HLA Shoemaker" and you will find some interesting material. What happens in this group of vulnerable people is that instead of your body breaking down toxins and excreting them as they should, they bind to fat cells and circulate around in your body until you remove them somehow.
633143 tn?1262137135 I do believe though that doctors definately have different levels and types of experience to draw from so they dont agree a lot of the time.
Avatar f tn When I met Temple I don't recall having a chance to talk about my story or my writings. Chances back then my story wasn't as well developed. I did carry with me rough drafts of my early works. People gave them favorable reviews back then too. I did have a publisher who was interested, but as a 12-13 or so year old I wasn't ready to part with the story yet.
1098760 tn?1266451497 I baught an ID and the rest of that crap for the ignorant, I dont have time to call the cops and Make them let me in all the time, and when refused entry into a place, reported them, and the businesses were fined for their stupidity. Service Dog types and training are so vast the government dibs it to costly to take over, so there is No Required Certs ETC. ITS All YOUR Choice. So Dont get taken advantage of, as Some places do Just that. Plan to work towards and take the K9 Good Citizen test.
363281 tn?1518219421 I just copied a list of all anxiety symptoms, you will be amazed.
Avatar f tn Treated only by toughing it out and coming off the med (acetaminophen or ibuprofen, naproxyn) Someone thought of a seizure disorder so an EEG was done. It's okay that it was done a few weeks after the stuff began. If the tendency was there it will be there weeks/months later. So, you got the MRI and the report stated you have an 11x4mm lesion at the ventricle. Sheeesh!!! And no one has been concerned? This is NOT a small lesion. This is a moderate to large lesion.
1257808 tn?1322765815 Hello, nice a day. I have this problem: chronic continues headache evry single minute during last 9 year approxmitly without significant causes & all investigations, images,.. etc are normal. No medication affect on headache or control it. I see alot number of doctors & try doffrent treatment like acupuncture & magnetic energy therapy but no result.
Avatar n tn My first MRI showed numerous (neurologist counted 13) white matter hyper signal intensities on FLAIR and T2 weighted images, mostly in the subcortical white matter on both sides. Radiologist stated that findings are not classical for MS although that remains the most likely diagnosis. I have also had migraines since childhood, so Neurologist assumed the WML's were associated with them. Since I have been"numb", I can't always recognize when I am getting a migraine.
Avatar f tn Are they coloured? Are they to full detail? For example; do you imagina your thoughts in 3D, do you spine the images in your head to different angles and want small details from them: such as a moving hair piece or drop of sweat.
163305 tn?1333672171 Some believe Venezuela's information war, which escalated last week as the government blocked images on Twitter after violence in Caracas claimed three lives, is only just beginning. The protesters are fed up with a catalog of woes that include rampant inflation, food shortages and one of the world's highest murder rates.
