Does Anyone Have More Than 1 Type Of Seizure?

Does Anyone Have More Than 1 Type Of Seizure?

I feel I do. Some I just sit or stand (whatever I'm already doing) and talk. Other ones I walk around and swing my arms. That sounds like 2 different seizures.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , The 5 day in hospital Video EEG I had in September 2019 showed mostly Focalized seizure activity but some Generalized seizure activity. My seizures don’t occur real often & so I didn’t have one at the hospital but the Neurologist said it was while I slept that the seizure activity showed up on the EEG. I’ve had several seizures in my sleep with my last seizure occurring in my sleep last September 2020. I probably have Grand mal seizures that include rolling of the eyes & my arms shaking my Mom says & others might be Partial seizures. When growing up I had the petit mal seizures, now known as absence seizures. On Facebook there’s a page called Epilepsy Education and Support & that page often posts helpful info that lists info about certain types of seizures & describes them & their symptoms, etc. Check it out. Hope your seizures calm down. Sending Thoughts, Hugs, Smiles & Prayers. Your friend in Texas, Becky
