Another Complex Partial?

Yesterday I took a shower 🚿 as usual, & the next thing I knew, I was completely dressed. The liner curtain in our bathtub was ripped out. I also felt a sore spot on the back of my left shoulder blade and on top of that side my head. I felt fine, and it was around 6:30am, so it had been less than 12 hours since I took meds. I often wish I would have some type of aura before complex partials.

Sorry to hear about your seizure, hope you’re feeling better today,
I used to have similar seizures in shower pre surgery , would be in the shower then next thing I knew I would either be out of the shower dripping wet or in my bedroom about to get dressed. Once I had a seizure in the shower and when I came to I was in my room but left the shower running but had pulled the shower curtain across. I think I was still post seizure as I went into the bathroom and the shower was running and I thought someone was using it so I went out. I live alone so it took me a few minutes to realise what happened before I pulled the curtain across and turned the taps off.

I mentioned it to my husband in the evening, & he said that recently I have had many while in or right after taking a shower. When a similar thing occurred last spring, my older son suggested that I begin showering at night, when others are home. I don't know how that would change things.

Maybe you are triggered by changes in skin temperature? Or the time of day?

Hi Sabbo,

I'm sorry to hear that you had a seizure, just like you I would often have seizures while I was taking a shower and after telling my Dr. about it he told me that hot water can trigger seizures for some people and often it happens when hormones are changing. The hot water fires up the neurons causing more electrical activity which can lead to a seizure. Try making the water a little cooler and see if that helps I know it helped me out a lot. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!
