The heart and seizures

I saw a thread on here that someone said that some seizures have a cardiac component. What excactly is that? Because one of my seizures I have when they start, they ALWAYS feel like they are coming from the heart. Back when I was in highschool I never knew what they were and I went to many heart specialists for it...well it turns out they were seizures. But I just always wondered if anyone else has had seizures where it feels like they start from your heart?

Re: The heart and seizures

I would think if you have seizures from the part of the brain that controls the heart or autonomic system it would do that maybe....

THere is also syncope that can cause seizure like events that are cardiac....have you tried an internet search on seizures and heart?
