Different Seizures, Same Aura?

Different Seizures, Same Aura?

For people who have multiple types of seizures and also auras, is your aura the same each time regardless of the type of seizure?

I'm asking because my aura is fairly consistent at onset but does have some differences at the peak. I have had an absence seizure recorded during a VEEG but also have experienced what may be atonic seizures.

Any info is appreciated!
