    Sorting out symptoms

    I am still trying to figure out what could be considered seizures. I would like to know if anyone has experienced these things, as well as information. 1. Tilting/leaning - I will be sitting down or standing, and will begin to slowly lean. Usually right or left, a few times forward or...

    Hello, can anyone relate? Basically I have only ever had one major tonic clonic seizure After a couple of weeks I was put on Lamotrigine then switched to Topirmate due to a really bad allergic reaction. I get auras and the following symptoms - increasing anxiety (not the classic anxiety that...

    What was that seizure type again?

    After always having a short aura and then into generalised secondary tonic clonic every 1-2 months, over the past few years I've started having smaller ones over 3-4 days. When very stressed I could have that every week or fortnight. I still get the same quick aura, lose conciousness, and will...

    Strengthening/changing auras

    Usually when I have an aura, I usually just see spots and have phantom smells (rubbing alcohol scent), followed by a petit mal (90% of the time). For the past few weeks however, my auras have strengthened by a thousand. It's as if I'm on a bad acid trip. I get nauseous, all I can smell is...

    Auras without seizures, or seizures themselves?

    The past couple months, I've been having some intense auras, without the following tonic clonic seizures. I feel dizzy, have a sort of out of body feeling, pretty confused, and thinking and talking is pretty weird... They last between 15-60 minutes, which is normal. Usually I lose most of my...

    Fluorescent Lights

    Does anyone have a problem when it comes to Florescent lights? I tend to get auras in Walmart when I'm there cause of the florescent lights, cause they're solar and in the summer, they dim and brighten at a moment's notice depending on if the sun is out or it's partly cloudy. That's where I...

    New triggers...

    Hey y'all! I have a question when it comes to new triggers. I'm a pretty avid gamer, and I've never had issues like this before. Since my onslaught of five seizures over the past week, I begin to get dizzy, nauseous and very faint auras whenever I play more than five minutes. Obviously, I...

    Aura's without seizures, more frequent or less on meds?

    Since being on meds, does anyone's aura's become more frequent or less frequent? I believe I first had an aura years ago in Walmart long before I ever had a seizure and I told the Neurologist about it and he seemed to think it was related but not concerning too much. Since I had the seizure...

    Flashing Lights Auras?

    Has anyone ever experienced flashing lights in an Aura? I don't mean like strobe light effects, I mean like you are in a lighted room and suddenly see the lights dim like they would if the power were being affected in a storm, only there is no storm? Can this be after effects of an EEG? I think...

    Aura's are just joyous, aren't they!?

    So aura's ... I've had them since I was in 6th grade. I would lose half my vision and then have a horrible "have to sleep it off" headache. When 15, when I was in the process of being diagnosed with Wegener's Disease, my aura's turned into flashing lights and an odd urge to turn my head to...

    Auras

    Hello, I am new to the forum, but wanted to start a thread on Seizure Auras (which is what the various strange experiences preceding a seizure are called as i have recently learned) not to be confused with the very different notion of people who believe they see energy fields around things. I...

    Aura's, do you see colors?

    I was just wondering if when someone has an aura if they experience seeing colors? Kind of like seing spots if you're suddenly blinded by the sun. Today I was on my usual walk and when I got back, for like 2 seconds, I saw green colors. I was out of breath from the walk and then saw that. Looked...

    New Seizures?

    I have always had either grand mals (which are now controlled with medication ) and a complex partial that was preceded by an aura. But now, at 29 years old, I'm suddenly having a new seizure. It's more of a simple partial. I was wondering if this is something others have experienced? :soap:

    how likely is it that my brother could also have epilepsy?

    So I've heard that Epilepsy could be hereditary, and the more I read here about people's own experiences with seizures, especially temporal lobe, the more I wonder if my brother may have temporal lobe epilepsy. As far as we know, no one else in our family has ever had epilepsy, so would it be...

    I haven't been feeling to good. I've been so tired that I can't stay more then 5 hours awake then I have to sleep again. I've been having this moments where time seems to disappear, slow down and speed up at the same time. It leaves me confused as to what has happened. I also have mind blanks...
