I am new to this board. I had a grand mal seizure on the 18th of November. It was about 11 PM. My husband called the ambulance as this was my first known seizure that was wittnessed. I say this because I swear I had a seizure about 9 years ago this was also at night. I remember the first seconds of it, I think I sat up in bed I was paralized and my arms were out stretched in front of me, my head was bend back, I think my eyes were rolled up in my head, I was scared to death, then I must have had the seizure. My husband didn't wake up that time. I always thought it was a night terror, or a dream anyway.
This seizure I had two weeks ago, started the same way. I remember thinking "oh no not again, help me" I woke up my husband by the convulsions and he said my eyes were open and after I was unconsious for about 10 minutes. I woke up just as they were there coming in the door to take me to the hospital. I am on Dilantin at the moment, but the Neurologist is starting me on Lamictal on Monday. I have a EEG on the 11th of Jan.
I am wondering if you could have epilspey even though I think I have only had 2 seziures and they were so far apart. Is it possible to have a seziure and not even know it?
Sorry this is so long.
