Usually when I have more than one seizure in a day, i get chest pain. if I move around too much my chest burns and I get the shakes. Im not sure if that's a normal symptom after a seizure for anyone or if that's something to be concerned about?

Hi Cordero,

Getting the shakes isn't uncommon depending on the type of seizure a person has but you may want to call your
Dr. and let them know what's going on with the chest burn and pain because that could be possible heart problems.
Sometimes if a person has problems with their heart it can trigger seizures also. Call your Dr. today. I wish you only
the best of luck and May God Bless You!

Burning chest pain can potentially be caused by a lot things, so as Sue says it's a good idea to get in touch with your doctor. It could be caused by cardiac issues, but also things like muscle strain, heartburn, or a panic attack. Make a note of when it happens, how long it lasts, and whether it gets worse if you are in certain positions or during physical activity -- that might help your doc figure out what's going on.

Try taking half a teaspoon of food quality Epsom Salts in a little orange juice and see what an amazing difference that makes. It has worked over the years for thousands of people .

Really? Well it hasn't worked for me and thousands of others......
Please be careful of what you offer.

Go see the doctor and tell them about the chest pain and burning sensation.

Went to theUrgent Care doctor. They did an EKG and it looked normal. The doctor admitted she didn’t know a lot about epilepsy but recommended taking ibuprofen for burning chest pain. She also rsaid to follow-up with my neurologist. Thanks for everyone’s responses.
