Question question on seizures

I went to a neuro yesterday for a problem i have been having.Most of the time it iswhen i cough hard I getweak andblack out for about15 seconds,then when I can see again my arms are jerking.He told me it was light seizures,gave me a prescription for 300mg neurotin,twice aday.Does this problem sound like seizures????Does anyone else here do this sort of thing?Just worried.I was driving home the other night and I coughed hard and I almost blacked out again butwas able to stop my truck.help anyone...

Sounds possibly like seizures, but I've never heard of seizures being brought on by coughing. I've heard of them brought on by hyperventilating, though. Do you hyperventilate when you cough? Have you had an EEG? If not, I suggest you see another doctor.

The coughing itself maybe a partial seizure. If you look on the epilepsy ontario site it mentions many symptoms of partial seizures including a choking sensation, etc. What's further convincing is the fact that you are jerking afterwards. Good luck!
