    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?

    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....

    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?

    Could I have a neurological disorder or something?

    Over the past couple of years, I seem to be developing some neurological issues and they seem to be getting worst. I’m only 18 years old, but I’m constantly tired and dealing with migraines. I’ve been developing slight muscle spasm and jerks which have been really annoying. I can’t control them and I’ve been getting them a lot. I keep messing up and slurring my speech. I do smoke weed on occasion which probably makes it worse, but I really enjoy smoking. I feel like I am constantly in a dazed and....

    Side effects?

    Hi I'm 13 and I get headaches a lot and my pediatrician is trying to get me to see a neurologist. And she ordered a mri so the don't have to do one when I go there. She ordered one with contrast and without. What I'm wondering is what is the fluid they put in the IV?! Can it have side effects or what? I'm just really confused about what the fluid is for a mri with contrast???
