Hi Vickie,

I am so sorry to hear that your seizures are back.I hven't been around
for a week or more because I had to go over and stay at my parents.
They put me on progesterone bc pills and it made my seziures worse.
Finally got the prog. out of my system and could come home.

Take care,Sherri

Re: sherri or anyone out there someplace i need to talk my serizures are back.......

Vickie I have a history of "fainting" which was blammed on "anxiety/stress" by alot of different doctors.My EKG's were always normal,my heart has tested normal,and CAT scans and,MRI.I have "fainted" a total of like 6 times in the past 14 years.Witnesses say I get real pale ,kind of stiff,and tremble slightly.I feel sick to belly a bit before or like I have to go potty,get lightheaded and dizzy,my vision starts to blacken and out I go.Afterwards I am a mess and I mean a mess.I feel totally awful,sweat from head to toe,heart either pounding or faint and sometimes skipping.I had once lost my bowels and once vomitted,I can hardly speak and I am extremly weak this all last for several minutes and slowly fades.Yep still till this day I am told the same thing typically its "anxiety/stress related" .."hyperventilation"....."prone to faint" LOL im sorry but the prone to faint one was the most humorous and rediculous one to me.Anywa,I guess im lucky in a sense that when I have these they are VERY sporadic I go years with none and then suddenly have one and then so on.I have thought mine could POSSIBLY be Vasovagal Syncope but I don't know and doctors ive seen havent really helped.I still believe more so that they have been seizures.I hope you get to bottom of this and you are right it is certainly not normal.

hello vickie,
My name is bevin I have suffered from non specific seizures since i was four years old was not properly diagnosed til age 21 becuase my brain waves were mature enough to show the spikes in brain activity during a seizure. As an adult I can tell you from experience that you falling down, being dizzy, having your head hurt is a sign of a seizure. when I had my seizures as an adult I not only became dizzy but was so lightheaded my head hurt really bad. I fell down the front of the kitchen counter top during one of my seizures and then was on the floor and only able to respond by shaking my head yes or no. So what you describe in this message is defintely a seizure. It is not stress or any thing else. you need to find a neurologist who specializes in seizure problems.
