    Experiencing a seizure

    Hi there. I was recently diagnosed with Epilepsy and was curious, when you experience a trigger or something you thought could be, would you experience the seizure right then and there? Or would it lay dormant for however long until it just comes up? I have experienced all of my seizures when I'm asleep. My doctor says I've experienced triggers sometime in the day and they all lay in my head until they come out and that's when I get my seizures. To me this seems all a bit hard to believe....

  • Epilepsy

    I am a 27 year old female and I've had epilepsy since I was 10-11 years old. I usually had it 2-3 times a year in a night when I was a child. Most seizures were 2-3 mins in duration. I took Depakin for a few year. After remission, I stopped taking it. I now suffer from epilepsy every few years. Specifically, age 17,20,23, and now this year at 27. My questions: 1) I seem to get epilepsy when I'm stressed and tired. Is this a coincidence or not? 2) Can I live without taking Depakine? 3) Can....

    Involuntary body movements while conscious?

    [Tagged as seizures because it is the closest category] Hello everyone, I'm a 19 y/o, Assigned Female (I'm trans but was 'born' female), and I've been experiencing some body weirdness since I was about 12 (possibly before, but I have no idea), but never brought it up to doctors as I never knew how. Initially, the only way I knew how to categorise the weirdness is "epileptic" but... I've been looking into seizure types and I don't quite fit the definitions. I....

    Doctors with no idea of what's going on.

    I was diagnosed in 1997 with viral encephalitis. I had memory issues, falling and sometimes speech problems. In 2014 was diagnosed with elevated ammonia levels, seizures and post encephalitis. I have been falling very frequently. In fact l just fell in my doctors office 2 1/2 weeks ago and l was recovering from a fractured leg which is not the first time. My first neurologist after my first TBI said l had partial seizures, the next carpal tunnel and Parkinson's disease. And my last one non epileptic....

    TIA Seizure

    Left hand and arm going numb immediately followed by left side of mouth and tongue going numb. Taken to the ER. Had several more of these episodes in the hospital, exactly the same. They put me on seizure medication. And thought I had a TIA. Could that cause seizures? I don’t have epilepsy symptoms. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Seizures while sleeping...

    I do understand that seizures can occur while you are sleeping regardless of what type of seizure condition you have. I have grand mal epilepsy and my question is: with grand mal epilepsy, will you still convulse when having a seizure while sleeping? And another question to follow is: can one with grand mal epilepsy have another seizure disorder without really knowing?
