Complex Siezers

Complex Siezers

Does anyone seen to feel very strange and have to go to bed and sleep for some time a couple of days after getting stressed , or very tired, I have complex siezers

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Stress and lack of sleep trigger my partial complex. I sleep afterwards between 2 and 10 minutes and may remain confused for a while- depending on the strength of the seizure.

When people take a seizure fit it can make you tired because you use more energy in a fit than you probably would in a whole day because off the power an strength you thrash out in a fit

That tolerance of pain is the same for me too. I grind my teeth a lot and recover with tooth and jaw pains. I tighten every muscle into a cramping stage, so when I recover I'm still having muscle pains for a day or two. Years ago I used to be as quiet as could be (unnoticeable), but as the years have passed I seem to cramp up a lot more so I go into a loud moan or even a scream until I recover. I've read about this side-effect that I sometimes get which is deja-vu. I'll recover from a seizure and will be remembering an era of my life so clearly that I had totally forgotten before. This deja-vu even discovered that a friend of mine for the past 10 years is an ole friend of mine from 30 years ago! She hadn't been recognizing me, and I hadn't recognized her before that seizure. Then I said, "Hey, didn't you used to work at ......., at live next to ....., and ......? She the recognized me too! This is what happens quite often, but I don't know if these are just imaginary or actual events of my past.

Same. I hate it, I can't get anything done. It's both. Meds make you drowsy too so it just adds to it.
