The only insight I can give you on your questions is about the headache during and after a seizure. I have a VERY mild case of epilepsy and I've been seizure free for a few years now, but after *I* (I don't know about anybody else) have had a seizure, I have HORRID headaches. Headaches which are so bad I can't even move my head. I would call it more of a migrane. So, I do feel pain in my head AFTER a seizure.
I hope I helped you a bit.
my son had a stroke at birth.he is now 8 yrs old.he had epilepsy surgery (functional partial hemi)when he was 4yrs old. he doesn't have the status seizures that he used to have, but he was put back on seizure meds for small seizures. they are under control now but i just found out that 50% of the people who have had the surgery need a second one.he is non-verbal so he can't tell me what he is feeling. he often, out of no where starts to cry and hit his head. i don't know if he is feeling a seizure,the effects of his tegratol.he has some autistic behavior so it is hard to know if if it is behavioral.can anyone relate to this,or can someone tell me if your head hurts before or during a seizure?any help would be great.
