    Seemingly regular seizures (also experiences w/ vinpocetine)

    Not witnessed vs. Witnessed

    So the past few mornings, I have been waking up on the floor with every single joint in my body aching, migraines, sore jaw, but no bitten tongue. I have a bad feeling I may have had a grand mal.

    My worst seizure to date, aside from the one I had last year (it's still a toss up which one was more traumatizing), was in 2006 if i recall correctly. My sister and I were on a plane trip to Alaska, all the way from Texas. The whole day had been really stressful because we'd missed the check in...

    Suddenly I'm having seizures after MANY years with no problems

    I had 2 seizures in high school. At the time (1987) there was no guarantee that I even had a seizure, only that those people who saw me "pass out" insisted that I must have had a seizure. EEG, CT Scans, MRIs, etc. showed nothing. I remember being put on 300 mg of dilantin for 2 years. After 1...

    Am I the only one?????

    In March 2012, I had an unusual episode. I was at work sitting in a large overstuffed green chair with my laptop in my lap, and I suddenly woke up. I'm a teacher and had a planning period, so no one saw me or what what happened to me. I was completely disoriented, since I had felt that I would...

    Are My Seizures Tonic Clonic? Please Answer!!
