What Are The Types Of Seizures People Get

Like what is the difference between each different type and how do you know what type of seizures you have if your doctor hasn't told you what type you have. I can't tell you as I black out and from what i have been told I shake constantly until I come around with no memory of it !!! I was also wondering I hear people mention different types of seizures and i was wondering what the symptoms of each type of seizure ??

Is It Recommended That People With Any Type Of Seizures Not Drive?

Is it true that people with any of the types of seizures shouldn't drive? I totally understand why I shouldn't (I experience tonic-clonic seizures), but what about those with the other types?

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!

I do same for my auras before seizure drink water to calm auras so a seizure wouldn't happen. It helps 80% of time
