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?
So i just started having a chest pain, back pain and ear ringing with pain and now a headache. All pains are past a 10. This isnt my first time having these pains and the hospital does is check my heart rate, blood pressure, lungs, says everything is fine and sends me out with meds. I dont know anymore.
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 messed up my back during a seizure. Anytime I sneeze or cough it starts to hurt painfully. I can't even stand from sitting without experiencing immense pain. Aside over the counter drugs, anyone got any remedies?
I had to get my appendix removed in September and I have not been back to work yet. I still have the terrible pain still in my abdomen and goes into my back. I am scheduled to go back to work for January. I just wondered if any other epileptics have had appendix issues???
