I no longer have these, but it used to be a common occurrence. I know there are many, many types of seizures but have never found one that fits what used to happen to me. Can anyone tell me what this is??
* It lasted an entire day. From the time I woke up until I went to bed at night. Usually about 13-16 hours. Was always fine the next day
* I was always conscious.
* Never extra tired.
* No twitches. No pain or even physical discomfort of any kind.
* Most people didn't know anything… read more
Im truly sorry that you are going through this. I can say Ive never experienced what you are going through. I have Pseudoseizures (look like petit & grand mal), actual Grand mal, aura’s sometimes shaking, smelling beach.
I have memory loss from the now-trouble with yesterday, but better with 49 years ago. Was diagnosed 49 years ago of Petit mal & put on meds-found out that I was misdiagnosed & believed I actually have autism instead.
As ling as you arent aline & your care team-dr., family member & you all work together to help you—then you will het thru this ma’am.
I am not a doctor and and can't diagnose you, but in my web research I remember stumbling across two disorders with comparative studies. They're called "transient global amnesia (TGA)" and "transient epileptic amnesia (TEA)." You can try a net search. I hope you find the answers you're looking for, or maybe just be happy you don't have them anymore. Wishing you many seizure free days.
the pic is why. i see you are in the uk. i live in the usa. maybe my generalized is your bilateral.
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member focal onset of any kind last anywhere from a second to 10 minutes or more. my auras into focal onset awareness into focal onset impaired awareness last me a couple of seconds. but when i was a kid it last me a few minutes. maybe 5 minutes. some auras last for hours. its up to the person. and RandySherman is right it could be both side. focal onset just mean 1 side of the brain is affected while generalized means both sides of the brain. you could be aware and have generalized seizures.
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member honey, this is a question not a criticism (as I’m curious not judging and aware this could be perceived wrong if misread), how do you spit out medication if your awareness is impaired? I only ask because I battle with focal with impaired awareness and am completely unconscious during these which is why I was diagnosed with this as one of the seixure types I have originally, so wondering how these effect you? I’m always up for learning
