Does Anyone Cry Out Or Scream Before Having A Seizure?

Does Anyone Cry Out Or Scream Before Having A Seizure?

I never noticed I did it but everyone who has ever seen me have a grand mal seizure say that I cry out before it happens. I also been diagnosed with Complex partial seizures along with having secondary generalized seizures, but it only happens when I have grand mal seizures. Does anyone else have this problem or similar? Would it be considered an aura even though I can't remember it happening?
