Can i get a seizure due to tonsil issues?

Perhaps: If you have a severe infection of the tonsils, such as an intense streptococcal infection, or the gradual acquisition of infection affecting brain, seizures can and do occur. Another outcome of an untreated head and/or sinus infection could be a cavernous sinus thrombosis which could lead to stroke and seizures.

Dr. Osman Farooq
Pediatric Neurology 20 years experience
Many: There are many types of seizures. Some consist of becoming unresponsive, some will have stiffening and/or shaking of one side of your body or your entire body. The list goes on... But the bottom line is that if you think that you or a family member had a seizure, then get checked. Undiagnosed and untreated seizures can be very dangerous.
A 43-year-old member asked:

I still have little jerks after a seizure, should I be concerned?

?myoclonus?: My concern would involve the number and intensity of your szs themselves, as this is a question of control, and truly, the residual jerks may merely represent ongoing focal sz activity, but could potentially point out a sub therapeutic medication situation. This is very complex, so, see a neurologist who can assist you in acquiring full control if possible.

I have psuedotumorcerebri. I keep having seizures even on seizure meds. Doctor says nothing else can be done. Is this true?

Dr. Robert Isaacs
Family Medicine 39 years experience
Pseudotumour cerebri: Pseudotumour cerebri is an increase in the pressure inside the skull, the cause of which is often not precisely known. It does tend to occur more frequently in women of child-bearing age. Treatment is often with medication to reduce the production of spinal fluid. Seizures are not typically associated with it. Consider getting a second opinion.
