Default Partial Seizures

I just wanted to add this in case someone has this and wants to know more about it.

It's called "partial seizures" where your body convulses, but you don't lose consciousness. It happens a lot of different ways but one way is when all the muscles in your body contract and at the same time rapidly vibrate kind of like shivering.

Some people have it bad where it's reoccurring. For some people like myself it only happens when recalling certain memories that I guess are so traumatizing that you can't handle it.

...
I guess it's rare.

Default Re: Partial Seizures

I was once given a diagnosis of simple partial seizures by a neurologist. An epileptologist said my EEG results (I had many) were not definitive. He wanted me to have a 2 to 6 day in hospital EEG, but I confess that I refused it. Part of the reason was because he wanted to greatly reduce my Tegretol XR (carbamazpine ER) for the test, and hubby was afraid that would destabilize me (I also have bipolar disorder type 1). Really, nothing seizure-like has happened to me for years now.

If I do/did have simple partial seizures, I never had the convulsive kind. In addition to motor (convulsive) type, there are also sensory, emotional, and autonomic types. I would have only experienced sensory and emotional types. The closest to convulsions I had was rapid gibberish and stuttering.
