Common Questions and Answers about Seizure types terminology

seizure

Avatar n tn Actually Topomax is what my doctor has suggested I try next. I'm supposed to wait another week until I start it though. I passed out while shopping a couple of weeks ago and one of the bystanders told the paramedics that I had a seizure after I passed out and they wrote in their report that I had a mild seizure. All of my doctors have said that it wasn't a seizure but rather just some twitching which is common when you pass out.
Avatar n tn Could you comment on the various cell types and how this may relate to prognosis of disease - diagnosed stage IV ovca with pleural effusion (histology - adenocarcinoma: serous; grade 2; nuclear grade 2/3): ovary - moderately differentiated serous cystadenocarcinoma fallopian tube - serosal serous adenocarcinoma; microscopic focus of intraepithelial serous carcinoma uterus, serosa- serous adenocarcinoma ---are the above the same disease process or multiple?
Avatar n tn I will be having another liver biopsy in May and in looking at the results of my last one, I am confused by some of ther terminology. Since I always like to compare my own labs, I was hoping for some help. The report notes that there is moderate inflammamatory infilitrate around the portal tracts with areas of piecemeal necfrosis and extension of the inflammatory cells into the surrounding liver tissue.

Avatar n tn My son had his first seizure Feb. 14 of this year. He is 10 years old and was diagnosed autistic at the age of three. His seizure was at school and observed by his regular ed. teacher and school nurse. My husband was able to be there within minutes and observed a great deal of it. I myself come from a nursing background and have witnessed many seiures but am not truly familiar with the terminology etc.
Avatar n tn I had an avm/fistula of the carotid artery repaired l5 years ago. I dont know the medical terminology for what was done but basicallly it was super glued shut , having gone in at the groin with a catheter they used angiography to follow it to my brain where the gluing occurred. It was considered very experimental at the time.It seemed successful and my symptoms disappeared.I have now begun to have grand mal seizures and memory loss..MRI and EEG were normal.
1625391 tn?1299295521 I am a 26 year old and I have a seizure disorder, back in July 2010 when I had my seizure I had fallen off the bed and landed on my right shoulder and ended up with a partial tear in my right rotator cuff, I recently had an MRI done a week and a half ago and my question is, the Findings: Again noted is the intermediate increased signal within the thickened rotator cuff consistent with severe tendinopathy. The glenoid labrum is unremarkable. The biceps tendon is normal and within its groove.
3217939 tn?1345929459 There are other types of seizure medicine, just as there are many types of seizures, so you should please ask your doc to try something else stronger on you. I mean, even the old standard barbituates might work better. Some people get feelings or a seizure once in a great while with meds, tho. But if this is something often, your prescribing doc is going to want to know. It's not good for the brain to be seizing or nearly seizing all the time.
Avatar f tn t really know the answer but I found a picture of different types of lesions and it included confluent lesion (which does seem to mean that they are grouping together or becoming joined). It seems to come up a lot on sites talking about the elderly and strokes but it may also be common in MS. Now let's see if I can get a link on here (no promises) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/core/lw/2.0/html/tileshop_pmc/tileshop_pmc_inline.html?
Avatar f tn im 19 years old i think Ive bin having absence or atonic seizure and some other weird symptoms..i don't know what is going on with me.. i feel a weird tingling in my head and really skared n anxious, then my body feels really heavy n i cant move. my mom also says i stare straight into nothing and after i feal really hot n sweaty n tired. they don't last that long probably like a minute or so..
Avatar n tn Also if you are not having a flare up at the time of a spinal tap will it still indicate MS? I have also read a lot about MS and find conflicting terminology, one neurology book defines remitting-recurring and benign as two different types while another defines them as the same?
Avatar n tn My sister in law who is 25 had a seizure last night. She is in reasonably good health but I suspect that she doesn't always take care of herself. She is some what of a workahaulic. Anyways, I have noticed that sinus infections seem to be one common reason. Is there other types of infections or viruses that can cause this? All her "tests" came back normal. What is it that they test for exactly? I am worried because they just sent her home.
Avatar f tn her mom experienced the same episodes when she was young and saw all sorts of specialists about it but never found a direct answer i agree that it is seizure like i am familiar with medical terminology and such as i have an administrative medical degree but her mom insists its not a big issue but i completely disagree
441761 tn?1204826268 Hello there. I recently discovered that the kind of seizure I am having is called a "somatosensory seizure". I was wondering if anyone else here has these types of seizures and if there was anyone here who could give me some more information on these types of seizures and what the best form of treatment is.
564065 tn?1216314613 I was thinking seizure-free, but some people would probaly like to keep track of their seizures.
Avatar n tn Specifically what does this mean? What is the cancer risk with these types of cysts and is there anything I should do to get rid of them while I am pregnant? I know it is normal to have cysts (I am 34 years old) but is it normal to have 2 that are complex? I am unfamiliar with the terminology used to describe the cysts and want to be vigilant about dealing with them if it is deemed to be a serious condition.
Avatar f tn My husband, Bruce, is 55 yrs. old. In 1977 he was diagnosed with microglioma. The tumor was removed followed by at least 30 days of radiation and chemo (Cytoxin & Vinachristine [sic]). He seizured for several weeks and then didn't have any seizure for several months. When they started again, he was administered CNS chemo. There has been no recurrence of brain malignancy. Since 1998, however, he has suffered seven identified strokes.
Avatar n tn Also, symptoms of particular types of seizure may be the same also as symptoms during a migraine aura. Hope this helps. Take care and best regards.
Avatar n tn If so, raising your lamictal dose would be one of the ways to control these types of seizure events (if they are seizure events).
