Does Anyone Else Suffer From The Aura You Get Before A Seizure But Then No Seizure?

Does Anyone Else Suffer From The Aura You Get Before A Seizure But Then No Seizure?

I often feel the aura I get before a seizure but then I don't have a seizure. When this happens I take Valium and it helps and most of the time I don't have a seizure. I'm just kind of curious as to whether this happens to anyone else.

Yes, for about 10 years I have experienced what I call episodes. They start with a core uprising feeling, then room spinning, then always ending with a phantom smell that was always the same and… read more

Rescue Therapy For Aura Clusters

Rescue Therapy For Aura Clusters

Hello all

Happy friday .
I'm an zebinix's to control my focal seizures since July 2017 . My epilepsy is the result of a cavernous malformation that hemorrhage and was removed in 2005 . I still get aura's quite regularly, my neurologist also gave me Ativan but said to use them sparsely. I think this was because of the addictive quality. Now I'm unsure should I take one when I get a aura. These aura come in clusters and leave me wiped out after and very shook. Any advice who be appreciate.

Can Seizures Suddenly Change After Decades?

Can Seizures Suddenly Change After Decades?

It doesn't make sense to me that they can change with no external cause
On Dec. 1 I ended up hitting a light pole in a private parking lot after apparently blacking out. The odd thing is, after ALWAYS having plenty of time in almost 50 years (I've NEVER had a seizure without an aura that I recall.) all I remember feeling this time is a few seconds of light-headedness totally different than anything before. The paramedics at the scene said my sugar level went from 68 to 156 after glucose… read more
