View Full Version : arms and legs feel heavy???

12-17-2002, 12:30 PM
Has anyone had this with a seizure, or after one? He acted very post ictal, confused, and "fuzzy headed" had trouble concentrating and thinking. His only symptom that he could describe was that his legs felt weak and wobbly and arms were very heavy. Any thoughts????

Hello! I every once in awhile before or after a seizure have the heavy feeling in my right arm. My hand becomes very.....clumsy. I feel as if I'm gripping whatever I'm holding but apparently I'm not because it falls to the floor!

Not really much help for you, but wanted to let you know he isn't the only one.

Thanks Lisa, Sam has often described his hand as being full of sand or sand and water when he has simple partial seizures. He said this was both arms and legs and felt different. Thanks for your input. Sure wish these partials were more clear cut!!(or gone all together!!!)
