Persyst Seizure
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

My son is now having an overnight EEG and in the moment he was receiving his injection the computer showed Persyst Seizure on pink letters. The spikes could be related to any movement? Like crying for example is he is crying a lot it will show up as a persyst seizure ? Or has he have to sleep and have the spikes to be considered as an epileptic form

Coughing Up Bloody Mucous After Seizure?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

Does anyone else cough up dark bloody mucous after having a seizure? If so, do you know why this happens? The neurologist wasn't familiar with this phenomenon but my dad's PCP said it could be from stomach acid coming up the esophagus during the seizure. After seizing, I can hear stuff rattling around in his throat/chest; he has a period of unconscious gasping/labored breathing after a seizure.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

The Australian Epilepsy Project https://epilepsyproject.org.au/ is competing against 9 other projects for government funding. It is a popularity contest between illnesses for this funding

Because epilepsy is an unseen illness, it doesn't have a high profile like many other conditions and needs all the research and treatment help it can get! If you are in Australia, email your MP to support it and Greg Hunt, Health Minister as the website requests.
