Re: if i have to go to ER , i feel
IV pain meds are not given for seizures since the docs need to monitor mental status and alertness, and the IV pain meds interfere with that. They don't like to give any sort of medication unless it's to stop status epilepticus, and that's just because it's a life-threatening thing, and there's not much choice.
I hate the ER too, but usually get sent there if someone else sees the seizure, or I have symptoms similar to the pulmonary emoboli (blood clots in lung), pre-strokes, or infections causing seizures. There have been times I'm admitted (up to 17 days for the blood clots), and other times, I get fluids, tests, and sent home. Then I can get my regular pain meds, and go to bed.
