Seizure “auras”

Seizure “auras”

I’ve read a lot about some people having auras before an epileptic seizure. I know there have been times where I’ve been physically ill or have literally felt like I seeing a big red sign flashing in my brain warning me that a seizure was coming. I wonder if other people have ever experienced that big red sign sensation before a seizure hit.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member yeah thanks. I have them off and on. Usually I get dizzy or physically ill. It’s pretty scary. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between an aura and just having a bad day. That’s what worries me.
