seizure disorders


Recommended Posts

hi all,

  i had a grand mal seizure at a bar last night.  i wasn't drinking and i havent had any major med adjustments (effexor, remeron, neurontin), but after i ate some fries at the bar and started listening to the band, i started feeling really weird and ill.  then i got up and started towards the door, and before i made it i blacked out..  apparently i fell and then i started shaking for about 3 minutes, and when i woke up someone was checking my airways and the police were there and (embarassing!) id peed myself (ew).

  anyways, ive never experienced anything this long before, and i was wondering if there are seizure disorders that would show up in a 25-year old person and assuming my blood sugar is ok (i tested it last week) and i wasn't sick..

i went to the emergency room and they started me on dilantin.  fun fun.. feel kinda stupid

well im glad the emergency people showed up so fast and i have to follow up with my GP on monday

Wow, bummer experience!  I'm so sorry to hear you went through that.

When you say you haven't "experienced anything this long before", it seems to indicate you've experienced SOMETHING along these lines in the past. Yes?  No?  And you mention a blood sugar test -- are you diabetic?  I don't know much about diabetes, but it does seem like if your sugar was whacked out enough to cause a seizure, you'd have some weird feelings first, huh?

What did your GP have to say?  Hopefully referred you to a neurologist.  They should do an MRI as well as an EEG to check and see if there's anything physically diffferent going on in your brain.
