    Has anyone had a Grand Mal first, then either a Simple or Complex Partial Seizure? From the description I've been given about mine, sounds like I had a Grand Mal, then a Complex Partial.

    Partial seizure during MRI

    I think I had a partial seizure during my MRI last week - my eyes were blinking more rapidly than I could ever do by myself, headache in right temple, a numb feeling spread kind of down my face and a small tremor in my right arm. It probably only lasted less than a minute, but does anyone know...
