Does Anyone Cry Out Or Scream Before Having A Seizure?

Does Anyone Cry Out Or Scream Before Having A Seizure?

I never noticed I did it but everyone who has ever seen me have a grand mal seizure say that I cry out before it happens. I also been diagnosed with Complex partial seizures along with having secondary generalized seizures, but it only happens when I have grand mal seizures. Does anyone else have this problem or similar? Would it be considered an aura even though I can't remember it happening?

Yes I have the same seizures with the Aura sometimes my Dr explained that the Aura is the beginning of the seizure before it gets bad or sometimes its just a small seizure so weird Good luck to you

My son cry’s out before his seizure. Thank goodness he does because his dad an I can run into his room. To hold his head straight so he doesn’t bite his tongue . We call it his war cry because that’s what it sounds like.

One time when I got a seizure I started to cry real bad and I started laughing a lot. I couldn't stop doing that.
