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?

Do Any Of You Experience Back Pain, Or Any Body Pain After Having A Seizure?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

Has Anyone Had Issues With Back Pain?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.
