What Are The Types Of Seizures People Get

What Are The Types Of Seizures People Get

Like what is the difference between each different type and how do you know what type of seizures you have if your doctor hasn't told you what type you have. I can't tell you as I black out and from what i have been told I shake constantly until I come around with no memory of it !!! I was also wondering I hear people mention different types of seizures and i was wondering what the symptoms of each type of seizure ??

I have absence seizures. It's like a Time loss. I will do things or say things and have absolutely no memory of them. I also have blackouts but I don't shake during a blackout. You need to speak with your neurologist about what kinds that you're having. If he doesn't answer your questions maybe it's time to find a different neurologist. Good luck with it.
