This have happened for years now and I can't figure out why. Your probably thinking I'm straining so hard that my eyes bugg out, that's not what I'm doing. I take my time Another thing that causes a seizure the same way is if I am in a hurry riding my bicycle quickly. So I started taking slow and deep breaths during these activities and it doesn't seem to help any. Do you have any ideas? I'm not going to bring this up to the dr.View Thread
Thanks for your information on that. Thats probably my problem because ever since I had 3 seizure medicine counter-react in the mid 80's I mostly drink water. During the reaction anytime I would eat or drink somthing sweet I would throw up not long after. So ever since then I hardly ever crave anyting sweet.View Thread
I was always wondering if it would somehow flush my medication out of my system. The other thing is that here lately the doctor says my medicine causes my sodium level to go low in my system I wonder if that has somthing to do with it.View Thread
I never did get rid of this, I'm 38 years old and it still happens. I have tried to take long, slow deep breaths throughout the activity and it still happens. I am not being strenuous during it either. I thought I was told by someone once that lack of oxygen to the brain causes seizures that what gave me this idea. I'm just lucky my seizures are just petimal and not grandmal seizures.View Thread
My seizures are considered mild petitemal seizures. Most of the time I can have a seizure and no one even notices it. If I have one and people freak out and surround me then they get bigger. One of my girlfriends I use to have told me in the middle of sex I had a seizure and the fell asleep after. She also told me I was still in her!
The seizures are not really triggered by strenuous activity because I go to the gym four days a week and lift weights, and I can lift many pounds. I also run two miles right after my workout and a seizure doesn't occur. Believe this or not but before I had a temporal lobectomy (brain surgury) my seizures seemed to be triggered by tones and sounds. After the surgery that doesn't seem to happen.View Thread
