Help Identifying Seizure Type

Help Identifying Seizure Type

Can someone explain to me what type of seizure I'm having if my right shoulder repeatedly raised and lowers multiple times for about a minute or two? Sometimes it's the right side of my back (muscle) that tenses and releases so much so that I jerk backwards. I could really use some clarification. Thanks in advance!

Hi Stacy you are having a Myclonic Seizure. I have them they are really quick, & sometimes you don't even know you're having it. I hope I answered your question clearly.

If you don't lose consciousness it sounds like a Simple Partial onset seizure. I have them and they last a few seconds and give me the sensation that my whole mouth and tongue are numb to the point I can't speak. Almost like I had been to the dentist.

I've been having different signs of tingling down my arm just on one the left side,it drives me crazy. I sometimes try to shake it out but can't it also goes down from my ear right down the left side,it drives me crazy, but I have been getting them more this year than ever before, maybe it's because I've been a very active person in my life this year I've slowed down, feeling it more than ever.

Hello Stacy. You have a nice horse and you look good too. I have those kind of seizures too. When I have mine they are in bed. I am sorry to hear that you have those other side affects.

Most of mine feel like I'm being shocked with a cattle prod between my shoulders. My head flies back and it knocks the wind from my lungs too.
