My husband suddenly started having grand mal seizures about 6 years ago completely out of the blue and was diagnosed with epilepsy about 6 months after his first cluster of seizures. He was young (27) fit and healthy and strong as he is a farmer, since the epilepsy began he has changed in almost every way... can anyone else relate?
I can’t relate , since I had Epilepsy almost my whole life. But, there is a possibility , that his seizures or medication side effects, or both are causing his personality change
I used to have back problems where it would hurt to even move, so I just had to lay down until I wasn't in so much pain, but ever since I was diagnosed with epilepsy after I have a seizure my back pain is a lot worse. Sometimes I get back pains even when I haven't had a seizure. And unfortunately I have tried every single pain medication there is and none of them help me at all
Bright side is I was alone and just went through it. Sometimes I do need some drugs to stop them.
My 18 year old son has been having lower back pain. This morning he had a seizure and once he came out of it he was in extreme pain in his lower back. I’m sure the convulsions caused his muscles to stiffen up or twist. I’m not sure if this lower back pain is common in people with epilepsy or if it was caused by something else.
I used to have seizures when I felt like disoriented jello if I walked I would swivel and bend my spine above my hips now I am having general back pain in the same area I know I am going to talk my sister said I should talk to my neurologist and also see a chiropractor but I refuse to take any prescription for my back pain because I don't want to be addicted to painkillers
These answers are helpful thank you
Hi I have night time seizures and my arms and legs feeling bruised and a little tingly the day after but I always have back ache and my hands and feet hurt most of the time. They are particularly bad after work (I'm a sewing machinest making curtains ). Does anyone else get this generalised pain .
It’s because you’re muscles contract during a seizure
