During a seizure

Recently I had Long Term Monitoring testing done. They had a camera watching me 24/7 during it. Due to my request they showed me 2 videos of me having a seizure that they caught on tape. It was pretty shocking for me. I noticed something during one of them. During the seizure I was smacking my lips together a lot. Has anyone else seen this happen in a seizure or has anyone been told by others that they do this during seizures? A little opinios please?

Thank You

Re: During a seizure

The same thing happens to me. From what I hear it is pretty common.

YEP!!! Tripp does this too.....he will turn his head to the left...smack his lips and adjust his glasses....last less than 10 seconds. I have seen him have one while eating and continue to eat with a little bit of drooling and resume his eating when it is over.
