On Saturday night. Apparently it lasted 20 minutes or so and the only reason anyone called 911 was because I told them to during the seizure after I regained the ability to talk slightly :dontknow:

I'm pretty sure there seizure was bright on by a CBD pen, but there were other factors. Poor sleep, hadn't eaten all day, the CBD pen made me sleep for 6 hours, get lightheaded and nauseous... It could also be the fycompa that I'm tapering on to.

My mom's boyfriend was a real jerk, he didn't even realize I was having a seizure. Ugh. We need to have a sit down (NOT in front of the TV) and have a family discussion.
:soap:

Hi Res,

I'm so sorry to hear that you had a bad seizure, I had long status seizures when I was on Neurontin but once I got off of that they stopped. I use CBD each day and it has reduced my seizures a lot but everyone is different.
Try to get some rest and I'm sure you have been under a lot of stress having to move again. Try the cold water therapy put a cold washcloth on your face and the back of your neck 3 times a day or any time you feel a seizure starting the cold water calms the neurons down and it has reduced my seizures and stopped many of them.
You take it easy on yourself and I wish you only the best. May God Bless You,

Sue

I hope you are feeling better. Make sure you are hydrating! This heat adds extra stress...

Honey also has anticonvulsant properties, so don't rule out some other factor.

Hi. Glad you're feeling better after that long seizure. I generally don't want people to call 911 unless it's absolutely necessary. Every time I've been taken to the ER, they just pump more meds into me, keep me in the hospital for a few hours, & discharge me with a hefty bill.

Hi Res,

It's good to hear from you and know that you are feeling better. I never knew that honey could trigger seizures but I learned yrs. ago after drinking diet soda that nutra sweet can trigger seizures like crazy for some people. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!
