Is Being More Emotional After Recovering From A Seizure Common?

Is Being More Emotional After Recovering From A Seizure Common?

I've been having a lot of siezures lately, and I'm so slow and have memory problems, and exhaustion which I know are normal, but I've also been really emotional- crying for no real reason, is that an epilepsy thing? And does anyone have any suggestions to fight this fatigue?
Thanks, Nikki

I cry hysterical after a seizure. Can't do anything about it. Not because of anything but seizures. My Dr said that most people get violent after so I'll take the crying.

Your probably are going thru the emotional phase . I've had epilepsy for a near forty yrs. from my teen thru part of my twenties I would get emotional about myself , my life, and how I'm going to live and so on.
Now days I'm more coped w/ my struggles. Living w/ epilepsy is a very difficult lifestyle. Especially when your not seizure free and you have to rely on the times you can use your friends, families, the city traveling services( bus, taxi, ect.) . What your going thru is normal. But try your best of not letting epilepsy control your life . It a lot better when your in control. I myself will still have my times where I may fall in a slump. But I always find a way out too.
I wish you the best of luck and pray that you emotions , don't drown you full of sorrows and depression. Keep up the fight.

Your welcome. I just thought of another theory or possibility about your emotional break outs. Where every the emotion side of your brain is , you seizures are hitting that part or parts of the brain . So when you come to you maybe feeling happy, sad, goofy , giggling and ect.
Take my spells for an example. When I have a seizure or spell , I will vocalize, become confused, forget what I was doing, stutter a little w/ my words and ect. That's all because my seizures are around and near my speech, language, and memory center of my brain.
Just another food for thought. I'm not a Dr., so I could possibly be wrong. Just theoretically thinking.
