Hand Shaking?

Hand Shaking?

Asking on behalf a friend who also has epilepsy.. she has had if all of her life she is now 23.. she had a bad seizure the other day where she just fell to the floor (normally she’ll be sitting down if she can tell if shes going to have one) but after that bad seizure about an hour later her left hand started shaking on and of for a bout 5 hours her epilepsy nurse says it was another seizure but she isnt too sure.. she has at least 3/4 a day thats why she doesnt think it isnt another seizure

It could be an involuntary movement seizure she is having so her epilepsy nurse could be right I have involuntary seizures I’ve had them for a few years I never had them when I was diagnosed I was diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy the seizures were simple partial and absense now I have complex partial seizures , focal , absense , I have them in my sleep , involuntary movements , clusters it was mostly on my left side then spilt to both sides it can be scarey when you’ve never had a type of seizure before seizures can change through the years I’m 44 I was diagnosed when I was 29 take care x x

I suffer non-epileptic seizures as well as tonic-clonic. Involuntary hand shaking is a feature of both

I have hand waving , tapping anything to my left( ,one time it looked like I was conducting an orchestra !)My husband had to move me to a different chair as I was turning my head & hand towards the lamp & switching it on & off I don't have major fits but have back to back absences & partials for 24 hours .These movements are part of each episode ,last for about 20 seconds
