What are the types of seizures people get

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 ??

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!

Is it common for a person to have many different types of simple seizures? Not all at once, just one person who can experience different types. Also, would it be unusual for simple partial seizures to last much longer than generalized ones? Say, an hour or so?
