Re: Conscious during seizures
I was conscious during most of my Grand Mal seizure that I had 6 years ago. My doctors basically told me that was impossible, and then a few months ago, I was on the internet reading up on different types of seizures, and I came across the Secondary Generalizing seizure, which sounds like what I had- it starts out as a complex partial seizure, and then gradually generalizes into a grand mal, or sometimes it doesn't quite get to that point and you remain mostly conscious through what feels like a Grand Mal. With me, I woke up during the night with a simple partial seizure that transitioned into a generalized seizure, but I was conscious during about 20 or 30 seconds of the generalizing part- my body curled up into a ball, and I couldn't move, breathe, or call out to alert anyone of what was happening. Next thing I remember, I was lying on my opposite side a half hour later, and had bitten a hole through my tongue.
There is another user on this board who has experienced something similar to this, also.
