    Seemingly regular seizures (also experiences w/ vinpocetine)

    I had another seizure this morning in the shower. Luckly, I was almost done and had a really powerful aura, so I was able to quickly finish up and lie down on my bed before the seizure hit me. I've noticed that I seem to have a seizure every four to five months on average, and looking at my...

    Seizures permanently having negative/permanent(?) affects on memory

    I could be wrong and spouting incredible amounts of nonsense here, but I've noticed that since I started having tonic-clonic seizures, my memory has been horrible. Well, a fair bet worse than usual. I remember reading something about memories being made by neural pathways (synapses?) in the...

    Regaining consiousness during a tonic-clonic.

    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...

    How High Does Yours Get?

    I was wondering how high does your heart rate get when having a tonic clonic seizure or a complex partial seizure?

    Post ictal psychosis

    Ok, so I kind of like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, as I am new here. I started having myoclonic jerks when I was sixteen years old. I thought nothing of them at the time, as I had no diagnosis, and had never had a tonic clonic seizure. I blamed it on being tired or partying too...

    Hello, I'm a new member! Just diagnosed with a Seizure Disorder yesterday.

    I'm not the most social butterfly in the world, so when my doctor suggested to me that since we have a local support group for those with seizures, I was grateful but I still declined. I'm not the best with face-to-face social interactions, so here I am! It was great to see this website exists...
