    Epilepsy, and progressing speech issues.

    Hi, I am in my mid 20's physically healthy, but I have had epilepsy since I was three years old. I've had two surgeries in the left temporal lobe area, the most recent of which being in 2015. In the last couple years had become harder to speak. the words, and sentences are correct in my head but when I say them they are either the wrong word, jumbled letters on correct words, or correct words in the wrong order for the attempted sentence.

    I scream at the end of every seizure. Is this normal?

    I am an 18 year old female and had my first seizure 2 months ago. Since then I have had 5 seizures. Every time at the end of each seizure I always sit straight up and start screaming. My family describes the scream as if I'm terribly scared. Is this normal? I've been told that it is common for someone to scream at the beginning of a seizure but they have never heard of one at the end. I have done research online and have talked to my neurologists but no answers.

    I have had a tonic clonic seizure and partial, but I am wondering if this could have been a type of seizure. I was helping my wife in the kitchen and was continuing to perform tasks, but completely lost about 20 minutes of memory. I had no idea what I had done with the salad I fixed or where I put it. After that I felt ok an remember the rest of the night.

    Partial Seizure?

    I've been extensively researching the various types of seizures and a symptom I've been experiencing sounds similar to a partial seizure but I'm not sure if it is. I've been getting a twitchy foot for months now, mostly in my right foot. Lately it's been getting worse to the point of exhausting my foot. Also my right hand seems to begin to jerk too. Sometimes when they happen simultaneously, if feels like a jolt of electricity shocks through my body, jolting my entire body a little....
