I found out a little over a yr ago that when I had my worst migraine ever, I have a seizure or two ( have had migraines for ten yrs but never connected the two.) It also happens if I have a lot of pain from other medical issues or even just whenever-sucks. lThe neuro hasnt said whether they are logically a cause of my seizures but I see a coincidence. He is still doing eegs to track my seizures and find out if my new hand tremors are related.View Thread
This coukd just be from nightmares, but since she is having them quite often you need to bring it up with your pediatrition. My nephew startede having stragne episodes in th middle of the night that he would drool, call out, cry mumble and even wet his bed. All while asleep it scared my sister and her husband so they took himto his dr then to a neurologist ad after an eeg found he has benign rolandic seizures which most kids grow out of w/o roblems though he is on med s to let him sleep and not have any. Best thing I can say is settle your fears and tallk toyour dr about it. Better to talk to it then worry and not get help if needed. Good luckView Thread
I can say I have had 4 since last october and another next week. They are a little uncomfortable to wear all day for 4days, but not really much more than wearing a few barretts iin your hair continuously. I wear a bandana over it when out of the house mostly to just keep the wires out of the way and when I sleep because I have a cpap mchine and find it more comfortable, otherwise I just wear it w/o to get air as the bandana makes me hot. You get used to the wires and bag esp if you put it around your waist like a belt. it also worked for me to sleep(the one I aways get has a cover over the wires so they dont gettoo tangled which is nice.
I dont mind having that many by now, it is more of an inconvenienc for me now, but they have shown seizure activity that the short ones they did yrs ago when I first had seizures did not so the neuros back then thought I was faking them even when had to go to the ER. It has even shown one or two thatI had when I was asleep. That helped me feel that something really was wrong not just in my head like the other drs thought I had.
The neuro I have now is really concerned that I keep having them(more than other neuros) and that the eeg shows them more now as well as the MRIs I have had show some kind of shadows that we dont kow if are related, but were not there yrs ago either. Now that I am having hand tremors he is doing another to see if my seizures are getting worse or causing the tremors.. If this is your first dont worry it doesnt hurt like I said any more than having barretts in all the time. Just relax and dont worry yourself too much about it, it will be over before you know it. And may settle some fears over what might b happeniing.View Thread
