I Have Questions That Hopefully Some Of You.

I Have Questions That Hopefully Some Of You.

What is the difference between an aura and a petit seizure. When I have an aura in which can last for hours I feel like a riot is going on inside me. People have told me to say something. I don't always have a seizure. I don't want to be the boy that cried wolf all the time.
Thank you everyone for your patience with me. I am new on this on line and I don't know what I'm doing all the time.
Hope and pray everyone has a great day.

In an aura, you're still aware of your surroundings and don't lose memory of what was going on. Mine feel like deja vu, or a sense of fear or panic, and I smell pepper.
If a seizure follows, I won't remember anything that happened after the aura.

I can’t have Auras but , I have a friend who experiences aurs. From what I understand aurs , are some type of sensation . Sensing things like a taste of metal in your mouth, hearing music that isn’t there , hearing someone’s voice that’s not there and ect.

Peti Mals are a very mild seizure the invovles a sudden lapses of consciousness. They person may look 👀 like he/she are in a blanks stare. The absences last for a short few seconds.

an aura is you are going to have a seizure. petit seizures are the beginning of a seizure. it is like auras are getting ready for a boxing match and petit is the beginning of the first round.

When they do an adjustment for the first few hours I get a little tingling once in a while after it goes off. Hardly noticeable though. I can't believe they didn't give a magnet thats not right. Kind of defeats the purpose of swiping your VNS to stop an oncoming seizure. They should have given you a small box with 2 magnets and a manual. I'd get on them to get you magnets ASAP. I'm going to find the phone # for you.

You aren't crying wolf. You can ask anything here because we all are like a family here. Be careful about those auras and always have your magnet ready to swipe your VNS ok
