Another Complex Partial? I’m Supposed to be Getting Better! by patientanonymous Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Tue 24 Apr 2012 12:00am I just looked up and saw the deadbolt to my back door open (again!) It leads to my patio.  I’ve been madly running around to see if anything has been moved in my unit; anything has been changed.  At least when I looked outside, I didn’t see any crumpled up balls of paper from my notepad strewn around everywh ...

Seizures? by Ali Patient ExpertFacebook Posted Fri 02 Oct 2009 3:07pm Yes, seizures with a question mark. Actually, I've kind of come to realize that everything involving the brain should be followed with a question mark!  The first time I mentioned seizures to my neurologist, they informed me that sinceBraydendidn't have the parts of his brain where seizure activity takes place, the cortex, they were certain tha ...

All About My Seizures by patientanonymous Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Mon 27 Nov 2006 12:00am A lot of the time when people think about seizures, they get this mental image of someone dropping to the floor and flailing around like a fish out of water. I blame television and the movies for dramatic effect. Not that this can’t happen with a tonic-clonic seizure but seizures come in many flavours. They’re wild and wacky and I find them jus ...

Seizure Update by Donna Posted Thu 07 Feb 2013 1:19pm It's taken me a few days to be able to write about the EMU update.  So much stuff going on right now.  Unfortunately Alex did not have any seizures while we were in the hospital (go figure).  My theory on that is she never really got into a good REM sleep.  She was agitated while we were there, uncomfortable and did not sleep well, at all - and ...

Neuro Update: Here We Go Again! by patientanonymous Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Tue 29 Jan 2008 12:00am I went to go see my neurologist this afternoon. We had a lot to catch up on. Since I had been fine for the last couple of years or so, we have only been seeing each other maybe every six months for brief consults. Knowing that, I felt I would have to be really on top and try to cram things in. Of course, I made notes. But, bugger! He’s suc ... Read on »
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF HE'S HAVING A SEIZURE? by spectrumspectacle Posted Sun 06 Mar 2011 5:41pm I went to wake Ryder up to get ready for church this morning but his eyes kept fluttering open and then rolling back up into his head. He couldn't stay awake. I realized this was a seizure so I thought I'd get the camera and document it. We've been to at least three different pediatric neurologists-and either neurologists themselves are a litt ... Read on »

Brainstem Seizures by Ali Patient ExpertFacebook Posted Thu 30 Dec 2010 5:39am I lived in denial for a couple of years, that we just may be the "lucky ones". The parents who did not have to watch their child, living with hydranencephaly, have seizures. Around 75% of hydran-miracles have seizures, mostly controlled with pharmaceutical intervention. However, even when my 'lil man's "spells" progressed in to more defined episo ... Read on »
Diagnosing Epilepsy by Kirk Patient Expert Posted Fri 05 Jun 2009 5:07pm Some of this information has been presented in various posts below, but I wanted to add it here in the context of diagnosing epilepsy. Epilepsy is diagnosed upon having more than one unprovoked seizure. Identifying the type of seizure is critical in deciding the appropriate treatment. It is a good idea to see an epileptologist to increase the ... Read on »
