Epilepsy :: Are These Seizures Or Something Else?

For nearly a year now I have been having these symptoms, which are really starting to affect my life and college work.

Start off first with zoning out of conversations and just not being quite with it.

Then comes loss of consciousness and eyelid fluttering.

Then confusion, wandering round, verbal aggression (not screaming or anything, but apparently I can be quite rude)

Then I come round, just feeling tired.

Altogether (apart from tiredness) this can last anything up to an hour. I don't remember anything of these, and all the information has come from witnesses. I have had an EEG and MRI, which were clear. So why am I still having these?

Epilepsy :: Are These Seizures?

About 10 years ago I had something that resembled a stroke. I felt really strange that day and thought I needed to dilate my veins, i reasoned a run might help. After running about half a mile half the side of my body tensed or stiffened up; my head locked to one side, my arm curled in, my fingers curled in, the same side's leg stiffened and it was hard to walk. This lasted for something like 4 hours, and since then I've had trouble concentrating on things and the left side of my head/brain feels like numb/inflamed. I went to the ER and they gave me an MRI and said I had a brain cyst.

I always thought it was a stroke and I got some degree of damage, but a recent MRI doesn't show evidence of a stroke (but the pineal cyst is still there). So if it wasn't a stroke then what was it? Does this sound like an asymmetric tonic seizure?

I've had some other incidents that I thought were panic attacks where my vision goes dark, my hearing goes away and have to fight to not black out. Is my pineal cyst causing me seizures? I don't shake though.

Epilepsy :: Are These Really Seizures?

My son has been having episodes at school, he explains then as he stares, and he can't hear anything, but he can remember what's happened and he can see and move his hands, he doesn't think he could stand or anything though. He is 10 years old and has recently moved schools, He has only noticed these episodes at his new school for the last few months and he had not experienced one at home until the other day when he said he opened the cupboard and just stared at the cups for a while. He also says he doesn't know when it starts or when it is happening but knows when it has finished that it has happened. He is going in for an EEG in a few days, I am a stressed mother who doesn't like waiting :/ Does this sound similar to any seizures anyone else has had?

Epilepsy :: Sudden Seizures At 27

I am a 27 year old male and about 3 months ago I started having seizures. The first 2 were about 2 months apart and both times! paramedics were called and I was taken to the er. Both these times my heart rate was high around 140 and my oxygen was low. After blood and urine tests I was told my potassium was low and I was given fluids and potassium pills and ativan. After the first seizure I got a ct scan at the er and an eeg and an mri a couple weeks later. My neurologist cannot figure out what could be causing them. After the second seizure I was given keppra in an iv at the er and the put on it daily. After a little more than a week on keppra I broke out in a rash. My doc then put me on trileptal, 300mg twice a day slowly stepping up to 600 mg twice a day. Before I got to the full dosage of the trileptal, two days ago I had another seizure. This time it did not last as long and I did not go to the er. My heart was racing for about 30 minutes after and then I was fine. I go back to the neurologist next week and I would like to try more testing instead of simply throwing medicine at the problem. Any ideas what could be the cause of all this?

I will add that I see a psychiatrist and I am on 20mg of prozac and 30mg of remeron for depression and anxiety. Also, my potassium has been checked in between and even before the seizures and it was always normal. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Epilepsy :: Sun Induced Seizures?

I seem to have this seizure type thing only when I am on transport and sun is flashing through the trees.

my senses all disappear, I blackout for about 30-40 seconds then jolt back into reality, I sometimes involuntarily scream when I jolt back because its scary.

I have been tested for epilepsy and have come back clear, is it possible to have only sunlight induced epilepsy.

Epilepsy :: Laying Down Help Seizures?

I've noticed for years that if I lay down when I feel an aura coming on, no matter how intense it gets, I won't black out & go into a full blown T/C. Usually after a T/C my brain seems to.....how should I say.....reset itself as far as "knowing" how intense the last aura was....with every C/P I have they get more & more intense every time I have one until I would black out from one and end up in a T/C. Strange thing though, I've noticed that everytime I'm sitting or standing after they get so intense, I'd fall and go into one. If I lay down on the floor, after awhile, no matter how intense the C/P (AKA aura as far as I'm concerned) gets, it suddenly goes away after a bit. Anyone else ever notice this? Why could this be? I've tried to ask a handful of Neuros. but they NEVER give me time. Everything is "You have any seizures lately? Let's get a blood level. OK see me in ___ months." And that's pretty much the extent of the visit! They NEVER want to let me ask anything else (I've seen 7 or 8 in my life, so I don't think things are any different anywhere. And I'm not the only one I know who gets this attitude.) Anyone have any idea WHY this "pattern" would happen? Could it be more oxygen getting to the brain? More blood?

Epilepsy :: Seizures? Vary From Short Shakes To Full Blown Unconsciousness

I have had what we believe to be seizures for three years now. They vary from short shakes to full blown unconsciousness and full body convulsions. The EEG would cost me over $2,000 USD to have done and I just do not have the money. The seizures started March 16th, 2011 from head trauma sustained at the police department. The fragment of bone has embedded itself into a small part of my brain where if I am touched the wrong way there I will lose consciousness.

STD :: Chlamydia In Faithful Relationship?

So, almost a year ago my girlfriend (which I had been with for 10 months at this point) went for her to her gynecologist because I had a rash on my penis, which I had my doctor look at and he said it was just an irritation and to put some Cortisone cream on it and this was in June 2011.

When my girlfriend got her results back she tested positive for Chlamydia.

Her doctor gave her the pill form, and I just called my doctor's office assuming I had it too and he prescribed Azithromycin, the one you stir up and
drink.  We both had follow ups to make sure it was gone. I went back took and pee test and came back negative and so did her follow up. But her doctor was telling her it was a strand on Chlamydia that was only 2 weeks ago, and that I cheated on her 100%, and was being unfaithful. Which is not true at all. I have NEVER cheated on my girlfriend nor even thought about it and I know she has never cheated on me. The question is how did this come up? I don't understand. We've had vaginal, anal, and oral sex (both protected and unprotected but mostly unprotected). The only way I can think of is maybe contracting Chlamydia by having anal and vaginal sex, which I'm not even sure is possible. Or right before I started talking to my girlfriend now, I had a blow job by a girl I knew back in august 2011. Which then Chlamydia would have had to been dormant for 10 months, which I'm also not sure about. I've been trying to research it, and everyone is saying one of you had to of cheated. But this isn't the case there has to be another explanation.
We continued to date even though she thought I had cheated on her, no matter how many times I tried to tell her I never did. Everything was still going good, but now we just broke up (June 2012, 1 year later) because she just couldn't get over the whole Chlamydia thing and not being able to trust me.  Please someone help me out, this whole thing has ruined my relationship of 2 years.

Relationship Between Sjogren's And Water Retention?

Has anyone noticed any relationship between Sjogrens and water retention?  It seems like, since Sjogrens attacks moisture, they wouldn't go together.

But I have noticed that when I am about to have a good week without a lot of symptoms, it starts with my body getting rid of excess water (I urinate large volumes regardless of how much I am drinking and then am about two pounds lighter).  I am just wondering if flares can cause you to retain water.  I don't eat a lot of salt so I don't think it is diet related.

Bipolar Disorder :: Selective Memory Loss In Relationship

Been in a relationship with a bipolar disorder person ( i believe) and after a while into the relationship , she has the notion of hurting me in the situation when she is very much emotionally involved with me as in romance etc. Seems like she loses herself and starts scratching me . i kind of ignored earlier but when i wake her up kinda thing she completes looks puzzle and asks me dis she hurt me kinda thing. She also did mention lets breakup coz its gonna get worst then this but i must admit i was adamant and was sure i can find a solution for this and we can be happy together. Then came a point whereby she went through the same episode and woke to ask me did she stab me and when realized no, she went on saying this has to stop kinda thing since next she will go to suicidal mode etc. She also went on i just cant be as normal anymore to you since my mind has already shutting u down. That evening when i got in touch with her , she told me that its happening and she was somewhere alone in her office not sure what she was trying to do neither any recollection how she got there. She was infact awaken by the cleaner lady thankfully she said. She said "i love u more then my life" to me and that's the problem . The next day when i got in touch with her , she acted as though she has no recollection of what we had in between and she seems to have memory loss on all the places and events that she has been and was with me. She even started calling me by my real name instead of dear or darling how she used to. She is also doing her studies now, and i'm confused to whether to help her to recall things that we had in the past or let it be as not to distract her from her studies and help her to recollect once she is done with her studies and then seek medical help so that we can be on track again.

Relationship Between Heart Rate (at Rest) And Blood Pressure?

I would be interested in your views on whether you believe that there is a relationship between heart rate (at rest) and blood pressure? My bp monitor always gives me my heart rate, which I guess is standard? But I got to thinking (my wife says this is dangerous for me!) why do bp monitors register heart rate unless there was a link to bp? I have "googled" it and can't find anything that is definitive. My resting heart rate hovers around 60 BPM which is quite good apparently. How much attention do you all take of the heart rate readings on your monitors?

Stress / Anxiety :: Repetitive Negative Thoughts (toxic Relationship With Husband)

Okay so, I'm 20. Um okay so, i keep having thoughts about my ex.. Me and him have been in a very toxic relationship for years since high school and I feel as though it was just so toxic that it didn't allow us to grow or to really be who we truly are.. But.. Yeah we weren't together anymore and all he wants now is just sex from me.. And I'm so attached I dream about him with other girls and I constantly think about the arguments we had things he has said things I have said just constantly playing back things and now I'm starting to talk to myself like I my head I'm starting to be nicer to myself and allowing those thoughts to just come and go and I am constantly forgiving myself and telling myself that I cannot control any of those situations and I tell myself that or worrying and overthinking will not resolve anything but just makes matters worse... And I have repetitive thoughts about anything that I feel so insecure about, I've started praying and asking God to help me.. Is there anything else I can do? I've also started meditating I don't do much like I just started getting back into school consistently everything that I do is inconstant. Everything so I'm starting to be better at things
