If You Have A Seizure Can It Fill Like You Just Fell Asleep.

If You Have A Seizure Can It Fill Like You Just Fell Asleep.

If yes how can I explain to people that I can't tell for sure if I had or hadn't had a seizure. That would also mean I can't tell how many I have or when I have them.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

The only time I can tell I have had one is when I try to get up and then I immediately start to fall backwards, I almost fell into the bathtub the other night when my boyfriend was at work, I thought… read more

Does Anyone Get Hot Then Freezing And Back To Hot After A Seizure?

Does Anyone Get Hot Then Freezing And Back To Hot After A Seizure?

I always get freezing after a seizure and when i start feeling normal again i start going from hot to cold to hot and back and forth. I can not get comfortable! It's 85 degrees and i have a sweatshirt on and I'm still freezing! But i checked my temperature and it's normal. Is this a type of seizure?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member yes, it sucks. Also hormones fluctuated my temperature, as well.

How Many Anti-seizure Medications Is Too Much To Take At Once?

How Many Anti-seizure Medications Is Too Much To Take At Once?

Under some research I'm seeing that its suggested to have 2 at a time. My neurologist has me on 4 anti epileptic medications right now. Is that too much? Especially because they aren't working.

It’s ok to be on more then one brand of meds. Just as long as the Dr. stays within the perimeter of your body weight and blood levels

My Seizures Are Worsening.

My Seizures Are Worsening.

At least I didn't hurt myself last night even though I did fall and was tired afterward. Always seems to happen near the end of my menstrual cycle. Didn't use to be that way. The seizures were controlled for a long time. My anti seizure medicines are Keppra and Lamtrogine. Technically generic Keppra but I can't spell it. But I take other medicines for nerve pain that can be used as anti seizure medicines even though they don't help me with seizures. I left a message with my neurologist… read more
