Re: Had a seizure and now back is in pain
My Dad did this a few times. He's the type who won't sit down and chill. He walks around trying to "fight off" the seizure or he just BAM has one, no warming, no aura. He tries to get up and move before he's regained full consiousness and we have to restrain him. I think that's when he actually pulled his muscle the last time. It lasted a long time and was painful when he breathed. I think it was a rib muscle or the diaphragm. A muscle relaxer and ibuprofen helped alot if it doesn't interact with your medication. Sometimes it can take weeks for a muscle pull to heal. Of course, you may want to talk to your doc to make sure you haven't slipped a disk or something. Also, alternating heat and ice will help. Sometimes you'll find that one helps and one doesn't or makes it worse. Just stick to the one that helps. (I have a herniated disk and chronic sciatic nerve pain.) Moist heat is great, as are hot baths with epsom salt.
