Prolonged Aura With Seizure Cluster

Prolonged Aura With Seizure Cluster

Has anyone had a prolonged aura and you try to "fight off" your seizure because you know its coming? I was at the grocery stote today and i didnt want to fall down and make a big scene so i tried to calmly go to the register and kind of leaned on my boyfriend and seized in line because i couldnt fight it anymore.. it didnt last that long but i was still out of it until we went to the car and i had the rest of the seizure in the cluster
Does anyone else try to fight the seizure thats coming?… read more

I get Auras about five minutes before. If I get myself really cold, control my breathing and get to a dark place to lie down I can have them more safely. I also try to concentrate on one thought and not get stressed but once I have an aura, I know a seizure is coming. Fluorescent lights, heat and lack of sleep are my main triggers. Other types of light bother me too but sunglasses help in the car along with air conditioning.

I do all the try to "fight" my seizures all the time. I have tonic-clonic seizures an whenever I feel one coming I do a breathing technique I learned called the butterfly (used for EMDR) to help calm me down. At the same time I repeat "I'm ok" until I feel better.

I try to fight my conversions and seizures all the time. Mine are mostly caused by stress so I usually use this technique called butterfly breathing. Stress balls have also become my best friend ☺️.

My seizures are sleep-induced these days so I sometimes don't get any warning. But sometimes I can recognise a pain in the temporal lobe which is a sure sign of an oncoming seizure. Taking pressure off that side of the head helps (changed from sleeping on my stomach to on my back after a lifetime!). Deeper breathing exercise also helps as I'm sure shallow breathing brings them on too.

When I have an aura, i try to will away the seizure that I know is coming! Its worked a couple of times. I like to go to a cold place, try to breathe regularly also and think im not going to have a seizure, im not going to do this! As i said sometimes it works
