Avatar f tn 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.... Your clear MRI and entire list of symptoms is suggesting that its unlikely to be due to a neurological condition like MS, MS literally means many scars and the symptoms are caused by those brain and or spinal cord lesions (scars).
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.
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 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.
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 // 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.

Avatar n tn With this in mind, it seems to make sense that someone who has different brain chemistry might have various types of differences, and thus various types of symptoms. Has your neurologist given you any information on this?
401095 tn?1351395370 Select other things from the OTC Options list as needed use other things from the list. Phenergan and Elavil are 2 prescription drugs that help and both are not habit forming. Take a good calcium/magnesium supp at night to help with sleep as well. Theanine helps with anxiety and REAL green tea as well Days 3-5 You will likely start to stabilize. When you feel that you are starting to level off begin the L-Tyrosine and phenylalnine.
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 f tn a history of head injury or brain tumor; epilepsy or other seizure disorder; low blood pressure; gallbladder disease; Addison's disease or other adrenal gland disorders; enlarged prostate, urination problems etc. It is not because of someone’s misuse that you are being denied the medicine , but because it may have many side effects for you as well . Your doctor wants to avoid any untoward incidents .
Avatar n tn could stand to increase my food intake--food types are healthy, amount may be on the scant side; a lot of stress, both personal and professional; heavy eye work--lots of computer work, photography, videography; lots of phone time--often cordless and cell phone. *The situation: On 9/9/97 I experienced a loss of consciousness for the first time--to my knowledge. It took place in the mid afternoon. I had been feeling normal and had not been involved in any physical exertion that day.
Avatar f tn Be sure to carefully inspect the ingredients list to make sure the ONLY active ingredient as guaifenesin. Any other ingredients can diminish the effect you are looking for. What is the recommended dose of Robitussin? The recommended dose for improving cervical mucus is two teaspoons (200 mg) taken orally three times per day. Recommended dosage is two teaspoons (200 mg) taken orally three times per day.
Avatar m tn She suffers frequent headaches that normally develops into migraines in the evening which at times lead into the seizure like symptoms. The seizure like symptom is on the left side causing her arm and shoulder involuntary and voluntary movements as she describes as the need to move or a tingling feeling begins to hurt her arm.
Avatar m tn I also had an EEG done, which I exhibited the issues, but it showed normal and no signs of seizure activity. I don't know what I am going to do if the remaining two tests come back normal. Has anyone ever had a similar experience and been diagnosed with MS?
Avatar f tn However I will try to provide you with some useful information. It is possible to have two different seizure types. Some people may have a focal seizure which may then secondarily generalize into a grand mal seizure. Others may have multiple foci for seizures, but this is less common. The majority of seizures can be effectively managed with medication. If you are on a medicine and it is maxed out, another medication can be added.
Avatar n tn Here are some links I hope will help. Both links have a list down the side of the page. One lists all the different types of seizures, and will tell you all about them. The other, lists all the different types of epilepsy, and tells about them. This one lists all the different medications available. maybe there is something that will work better for you.
612876 tn?1355518095 It should include symptoms other than headache/aura for those of us with atypical migraines, such as hemiplegic migraine symptoms like muscle weakness and paralysis, loss of speech ability, or impaired consciousness. has an excellent list including rare migraine types (basal, hemiplegic, abdominal . . . ) and their symptoms so you won't leave things out.
Avatar n tn On one occasion- felt a weird sensation like my brain was shaking but my head wasn't moving- thought I was having a seizure or something. Pressure headaches/face aches. Pain/stiffness in joints- particularly knees (sat in theatre for 2 hours the other day, struggled to walk upon getting up). Shaking limbs- get this weird shaking sensation in all limbs lasting about half an hour at a time. Sore muscles- legs and neck. Persistent pain and sensation of needing to cough in windpipe.
198154 tn?1337790865 ), Valerian Root, 5HTP (do not exceed 300mg daily) are types of things that may help you to sleep. Select other things from the OTC Options list as needed use other things from the list. Days 3-5 You will likely start to stabilize. When you feel that you are starting to level off begin the L-Tyrosine/B6/D-Phenylalanine/Sublingual B-Complex w/B-12 to help w/pain and energy.
656243 tn?1231291652 Many of us do not WANT to be on meds, but when the quality of our lives is compromised, when we can't work or take care of our kids or even get out of bed, sometimes there is simply no choice. Some have tried to deal with it with only therapy, and for some, that has worked out well. Some have tried a combination, (which I advise) and that works very well as often you can get by with less medication if you also have the support of a good therapist.
Avatar f tn Problem is there are many possible causes of flashes and spots. When you say you have seen different types of eye doctors that should include a comprehensive Eye MD ophthalmologist and a Eye MD retina/vitreous specialist. If you have seen both and nothing serious found its not likely serious. A reasonable approach would be to see if anything new develops or if present symptoms get a lot worse. If so then you might see an Eye MD neuro-ophthalmologist.
Avatar f tn I'm 22/female. I've had many health problems for several yrs. I really think most of my problems are neurological and caused me to develop anxiety attacks, but I don't know. I just know that a lot of my problems started BEFORE I ever began having issues with anxiety. My main problems are as follows: EXCRUCIATING pain on the back-right of my head 24/7. It feels like someone jabbed a knife through my skull.
Avatar m tn I had one brain bleed - thought possible tumor however on its own it dissolved and now have scar tissue. This is in same part of brain where I have temporal lobe seizures (seizure free for 20 years). I have developing muscle weakness, overly exhausted consistently or insomnia (never in the middle), always suffered complex migraines, no depression - basically these symptoms make it difficult to work full time.
Avatar n tn Thank you Doc, I have those types where most of the time I am semi-conscious but cannot move or respond. I also have had the complete unconscious type but most I am in my subconscious and hearing what is happening around me and can remember most of it. Chatahan.......
Avatar f tn I'm going back to my GP tomorrow because I don't think she quite grapes how bad my symptoms are so I've written a list of them.
