Stress Seizures?

Stress Seizures?

Anyone experience seizures with no real reason? EEGs Normal. MRI normal. Happens after stressful event (during calming down). (Example: horrible fight with family/high emotions)

I’m so sorry. That’s terrible. 😞 I wish they could just find the one neuron that decides to screw up and make the rest of the dominos fall in my brain (Figuratively speaking)and just fix it so I’d never have to deal with it again. It sucks living in fear that you might one day fall the wrong way or seize while operating heavy machinery and hurt someone else or yourself. It’s just awful. You are loved and I hope you find the right doctor to help you. <3

Me neither! What the actual fuck, right!? The sad thing is they can’t figure anything out unless you’re actively having a seizure in one of their stupid machines. It’s so annoying. 😡 which neuron is broken? Tell me, doctors! Tell meeeeeee. *hugs if they’re appreciated* do they have you on any meds? You don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to.

They could be non epileptic seizures or dissociative seizures.

Thank you 😊 i hope so too. And i wish they can find a neuron like that too. You'd think machines would be advanced enough for that by now then we could have a cure

I know right. No meds did not help. My latest neurologist tried to put me on the same medication i took when i was younger and it made me sick horrible side effects and he couldn't tell me why his response was just stop taking them and it seems like i dont need meds. He pretty much just threw me to the curb and i have to risk my life and just wait for a seizure. Doctors rely on their fancy machines too much that tell them nothing 😡
