    Thumbs down Seizure

    Well i havent been on for a while because of just being to busy, but lately ive had quite a bit of free time. like the title says i recently had a grand mal seizure. it happened a couple of weeks ago during my towns maxwell street days. i felt fine all day then i remember yelling for help, then woke up in the ambulance and asked them to drive me home, then woke up again in the ER. for a week and a half after this i was not allowed to be alone or do much of anything. i have since been to the doctor a few times and had various tests done....we still dont know what caused it.

    Me too, the only things that took time to recover was a lot of muscle soreness a few scrapes and small cuts(this happened in the middle of a road) and i bit my tongue really bad

    How old are you? Is this your first seizure? They won't let you drive for 6 months.

    im 16 and yes this is my first one, due to my MRI and EEG being normal my neurologist brought it down to three months without driving but i have to keep going to him for checkups every six months for two years, then once a year for three more after that.

    The doctor did not put me on medications yet due to it being my first one at a young age he felt it wasnt necessary.

    Stress could be, we think it is more dehydration and heat. also my electrolytes and blood sugar was low.

    Good to hear your doing well, my brother had one 4 months ago after we all got out of the movie house, it was bad & he smacked his head very hard on the asphalt, he got a helicopter ride out of it & doesn't even remember it.

    Like you the Doc's have no real answer for the why did it happen.

    Hopefully you aren't having any bad side effects from it like he is, & all is well.

    Got to be careful of dehydration & heat stroke as they are nothing to sneeze at & are very dangerous.

    Hope you stay seizure free & pay heed to what the Doc has to say.
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    LiPo? Naw NITRO!!

    I was lucky and was with a friend who caught me before i hit the ground. I don't remember much of mine but keep finding morI'e out from the people that were there. I will deffinently be paying heed to what I'm told and no longer go anywhere without a bottle of water in my pocket.

    I'm glad you are OK now...

    Be careful with hydration and blood sugars.... They may not be the direct cause of the seizure but they are well known for triggering them......

    +1 to everything Wildman4910 is saying too....

    Be Well.

    ok, so Nitronaught said blood sugar could be one of the causes of the seizure. i dont know much about blood sugar numbers, but the EMT's said when they arrived it was 154, then dropped to 82. anyone know if any of these numbers a re strangely high or low?

    Normal fasting bs range is 70-100 for a healthy adult.

    During the day it goes up a little after a meal but then goes back down below 100.

    If you're concerned about your bs, ask the Dr to give you the HbA1c test; it measures you're blood sugar levels over the past few months.

    i will bring it up with my parents and doctor, the neurologist is the one that wanted to know because he said it could be a factor
