Typically, my breakthrough seizures are just an absence seizure… some are real short, some are little longer and I can be a little confused and cranky and a bit tired afterwards. Occasionally I’ll have just auras that leave me exhausted for a couple of days…. It’s usually shaking, feeling lightheaded or dizzy, a little confused or struggling to get straight thoughts vocalized.
The issue for me is idk when I should take my rescue med since it’s prescribed for clusters.
