How Many Of You Get Tingling Numb Hands Feet Legs And Arms During Or Before Seizures Or Is It Due To Meds?

How Many Of You Get Tingling Numb Hands Feet Legs And Arms During Or Before Seizures Or Is It Due To Meds?

I get really tired in the late mornings and almost can't help myself from falling asleep sometimes it's before I have a seizure and one thing I've noticed is my hands and feet and lower arms and legs will go numb and tingle like falling aslleep with a little bit of tingling pain- I wonder how many people have this happen and if you know what it's from?

I usually feel something in my head, and eyes. But before it has been hard for me to sleep not feeling so well.

I know what you mean about these type of doctors. Some of my neurologists have been know it all jerks. Even though I knew my daughter was a triplet the hospital played "know it all" during the pregnancy they didn't believe me about the babies until my daughter was delivered and they found her brother and sister all I got was "we apologize for not believing you." Unfortunately I lost her brother and sister but some doctors are know it alls. All they say is "take your meds so you don't have a seizure and hurt your daughter, or after my kids were delivered I got "here is another medication for your seizures go relax."

I feel like I'm a ginuea pig to experiment on. Which I don't like especially when it's a new doctor intern straight out of medical school who is using me as a guinea pig for their diploma. I can't remember all the bad side effects I have had due to these new medications. I hate feeling sleepy in the morning and have tingling because of seizures or meds or both.

Sometimes I get tingling in my fingers and arms and occasionally in my tongue. That is not from a pinched nerve it is an actual seizure.
