Does Anyone's Face Go Down On One Side Making It Look Like They Are Having A Stroke?

@ the same ER visit I had a doctor yell at me to wake up and if I wake up my seizures will stop ,she was lucky I was in the state I was in otherwise I would of made her shut her stupid mouth.
I don't condone violence but some doctors deserve it who threatens a patient with putting them on a ventilator like you can control when you have a seizure.

Yes, my speech goes to a slur and I can't swallow as well. I refuse to go to the hospital as much as I can because the doctors just treat me like crap while I am there. I have even been told by an er doctor that "if I don't stop having seizures then he was going to put me on a ventilator. 😳 I have already been on one before and I could not believe he was "threatening " me with it. I hate just because mine didn't pick up on an EEG that I don't have them.

When I had my bad one's when I was having them when I was awake and active my mouth and lips would drop and fell numb leaving me unable to talk or move my mouth or swallow and it would drop to the side but just my mouth.

I have had it happen a coupke of times. Ended up in the ER tge last time and the first time in the Hospital. They could not figure out what happened. I was told i could have had a mini stroke. My records say stroke like syptoms. Dotors cant figure it out and they cant agree on what kind of seizures i have. Got to love medical “practice”.
