Re: Is This Panic Or Seizures Please Help!!!! Im Starting To Get Scared.

vickie this sounds more to me like a type of seizure. You may start having the panic feelings at first, but then drop due to the spells. I have had both, and yes I have faited but only from the seizures never a panic attack, w/ the panic attack I mostly cry a lot shake and hypervent, but never drop, so I believe is mainly seizures your having problems with. I hope your neuro takes all the necessary test and give u the right meds, but try to not think of the panic attacks much cause they help bring on the seizures, at least it my case that's what happened. Best of luck to you...

Vickie,

Being that you drop then can still hear everyone but you cannot
respond to them,it sounds like a simple partial seizure,a complex
partial is when you cannot hear or know a thing that is going on
around you.And like I said before,you having this happen to you as
a child and now coming back makes me believe even more so that
they are seizures,especially all of this happening now that you had
the hysterectomy which put you in an early menopause which could
have caused you to have the catamenial seizures.Glad to know that
you are home for the big turkey day and I hope you a wonderful and
happy thanksgiving.Take care,Sherri
