Seizure untreated

Common Questions and Answers about Seizure untreated


401370 tn?1233328282 However, you are still here, and thank GOD! Go to a physician and get his opinion on the matter- when someone is having a seizure, you are to NOT try and shake them or anything else that could promote injury.. instead, you are to turn them to their side, place something soft by their teeth so they don't break their teeth nor bite their tongue, etc etc etc.. What are those guards, retards or what?? Don't get ME started!
Avatar n tn It causes a hemorrhagic necrosis (it bleeds and dies) which leads to seizures, memory loss, problems speaking and often cognitive problems (dementia). If this infection is untreated it is usually fatal (death) in 7-14 days. With aggressive treatment with IV acyclovir early, the outcome is still guarded with many complications despite all efforts in many cases. These patients will require longterm care, for seizures, memory problems and behavioral issues.
Avatar n tn Hello, My 2yr (7lbs) chihuahua mix had a seizure. I've think she may have had a simple focal seizure (per websites visited). Molly didn't fall over and seize nor did she expel urine or drool. She was upright with open eyes. My questions: What are the causes? (couldn't get a clear understanding from the websites visited) Can the seizures cause damage to her body? When should I have seen by the vet?
Avatar f tn I`m not a doctor, but recently I´ve been doing a lot of reading on the topic and still learning a lot. I know that untreated or uncontroled hypertension and heart conditions as arytmia can be factors of danger of stroke. The seizure is also an alarm you should pay attention too if you aren´t epileptic. If you have a family historu of stroke it is another factor of danger. Do yourself a great favor and visit a neurologist right away...
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm new to the site and have found it extremely helpful. I have had Type I diabetes for 10 years now, and have never come across something so useful before. Keep up the great work^^ Onto my question. A couple of weeks ago, I was taken to the hospital by ambulance secondary to a "low blood sugar seizure." I have no recollection of a four hour period before I went to sleep, and then 3 hours after I was found seizing and taken to the emergency room.
Avatar f tn Alot of people after a seizure go through what they call a postictal period, which is them pretty much recovering from a seizure. They can get tired non responsive and sometimes lose their fuids in their body by peeing and bowels or also throw up. It is viatly important if in the middle of a seizure that you put his body on his side and move all dangerous odjects from around him. Time how long it last and what exactly his body does.
2186126 tn?1384961026 My question is how do most older dogs with untreated Cushing's begin to fail? I would really like to minimize any suffering in his final days. Right now, I am red-flagging every little twitch and thinking if I knew what to expect, I could calm down a little and hopefully not send any frightened messages to Spartacus. He is currently on Proin to control his urine accidents and that has worked for a few months now. Would just really prefer to look at him with joy rather than fear these days.
Avatar f tn We have a 3 year old female boxer that delivered a litter of pups on June 2nd had a seizure this afternoon. She was just sitting beside my husband and she fell over seized for about a minute and has seemed to recover fine. We've had no health issues with Molly and are totally shocked! Molly is nursing her litter and I fear what would happen if something happened to her. Anyone have any experience with this breed and seizures?
Avatar m tn Hello, When a person has an epileptic seizure (caused by epilepsy or some other condition (low blood pressure possibly; there is no violent thrashing or tongue-biting in the individual in question)), do the lungs get fresh air, or does the body stop breathing altogether throughout the seizure? A random person on a random forum said that the brain requires ~50% more oxygen during a seizure; is this true? Is there a risk of cerebral hypoxia?
Avatar m tn She has taken meds on and off all of her life, and has not taken any meds at all for close to 5 years now. She has also been seizure free for 5 years, and feels great. She gets occasional migraines, and has fatigue (probably from lack of exercise) but all in all is a healthy woman.
1303966 tn?1296743610 This puts her in a wheelchair. My daughter has been 7 1/2 months seizure free, and just last Thursday she started having seizure again. She had one Thursday morning, Saturday evening, and another one this morning. I am scared for her! I don't know if I can trust that they truely know what is causing these problems. They have her on a medication for anxiety, one for migraines, and Thursday they added an anti-seizure med.
Avatar f tn Her birth mother reportedly drank heavily during pregnancy and had untreated syphilis. Our daughter developed an involuntary shoulder shrugging behavior that lasted several weeks as a baby. An MRI done at the time was normal. Altho that behavior extinguished itself, she began having shaking/shivering spells at around 3 years of age. At first, she did it only in response to positive stimuli - watching a favorite video, riding on a favorite riding toy, etc.
Avatar m tn Dehydration, certain medications, heart problems, untreated diabetes, and nervous system disorders can all cause this. TIAs or transient ischemic attacks can also be the cause. Certain epilepsies/seizures too behave this way with temporary blackouts. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn I am wondering if this does sound like a seizure to any of you. If it is, does that mean its a sign of something very serious?? Or could it be something he grows out of? If this happens again, do I call an ambulance or wait and see if he comes out of it again? Could it have been a night terror? Does the doctor's advice sound reasonable to you? Thank you so much for your time and responses. I am just a worried mom.
215234 tn?1305146561 Could you make a list for me of all the plants you have at home? Could you post it? Honey I honestly don't think seizures are to be taken lightly. Tell me, has her brain been checked? Any MRIs or Scans? You probably did blood work, but blood work does not show whether there is a fracture in the brain, a leakage, or any other kind of issues. How do you know her central nervous system is 100% good?
Avatar n tn Cluster headaches are very severe unilateral orbital, supraorbital pain lasting 15–180 minutes, if untreated, and the attack frequency of one to 16 attacks in 48 hours.
Avatar n tn TSS, if left untreated, can lead to liver and kidney failure, seizure, bleeding, heart failure and eventually death. Take care and best regards.
Avatar f tn jan 5th mc caffrey gave me 2 shots in the back of my head and topamax, a seizure med. since the shots i feel less pressure in my head but still tender to touch. i touch the back and tingle in the front. steroids seems to be the only releif. i see no side effects of topamax. i feel same pressure in chest i felt before and same stiffness in spine shoulders i felt before. swelling in right ear has decreased significantly and hearing has improved. vision in right eye has improved.
Avatar f tn I have been struggling with anti-epileptic medication changes/combinations since that time with no success in seizure control. 2 years ago my TSH level was 4.99. Now it is 6.62. I do not take thyroid medication. I am awaiting the results of additional labwork and an ultrasound has been scheduled. I currently take Felbatol, which, according to my research does not inhibit thyroid function like some other AEDs.
Avatar n tn As long as the correct ************** is given to a person who has atypical (absence) seizures, they will not become a more severe form of epilepsy. However, left untreated, atypical seizure symptoms can get much worse, increasing in number and severity. There are many kinds of seizures and epilepsy, and it is critical that the correct medicine is used to keep them at bay, so a doctor who understands pharmacology well, they'll know what the best drugs are for certain types.
Avatar n tn Complications of migraine may include chronic migraine and even migraine-triggered seizure. Have him see his neurologist for proper evaluation. A complete neurological examiantion and further diagnostics such as EEG will help rule out seizure disorders. Take care and do keep us posted.
1364525 tn?1277865817 neuro doc thought I was having seizures because untreated, it went into my ocular nerve, caused strange sights... how can I test for HSV 1, just regular blood tests? also have fever blisters in mouth, usually, before flare up.....I think A LOT of people have this and it is misdiagnosied, untreated.....I use meclazine for dizziness, small amounts of predisome, rest, and flonase. Viruses are tricky lil fellows, and cause a lot of symptoms and distress in your life!
1977740 tn?1326129080 I keep thinking I'm going to have a seizure, I have real bad anxiety and bad panic attacks. I'm not sure if this is a sign that I am going to have one? Why do I keep having this feeling? It's so hard for me to sleep, I have never had a seizure in my life. And really don't want one. My mother nor father haven't had one, I don't think we have a history of seizures. But when I think about seizures, I think of my having one.
Avatar n tn Hi! Yes, untreated infection can raise the WBC count. The ANA titer can raise without any cause. However, it can also signify an autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc. Autoimmune diseases can also raise the WBC count along with infection. You need further tests for a confirmed diagnosis. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn She is most likely having some sort of seizure activity, which can cause a person to pass out, and most definitely is causing her to kick around so hard that she's bruising herself. You should tell her to go to her doctor and discuss her symptoms, and he should refer her to a neurologist who can do a full workup on her and he can give her medcines to control the fainting and muscle spasming.
Avatar f tn Every so often, he has that night time low, very early morning usually, where he starts having a seizure or convulsion. My question is about treating it. Does anyone have an opinion about knowing weather if gone untreated by me, will he come out of it on his own? Sometimes, I'll treat him and I hardly get any gel or frosting in him and it will stop. I guess I don't know if I'm even doing anything to be helpful.
Avatar m tn Cyclic smell distortions do not happen in your nose. You actually have a sensory seizure disorder, which is caused by a slight chemical imbalance in your brain. Unlike motor seizures, sensory seizures are partial seizures and they don’t manifest in a loss of motor control. Instead they affect how people perceive sounds or images, or in my case, smells. These seizures are activated when you stimulate the nerves in your nose by laughing or talking.
Avatar n tn There is an awful lot of misinformation out there about it, but testimonies from thousands of families whose children are functioning at a much happier, higher level than when unmedicated would lead one to assume that this can be a very useful drug. The untreated psychological effects of ADHD are worse than any potential small physical side-effects (if any exist), similar to other psychotropic medications like lithium, antipsychotics, anti-seizure meds, etc.
