Whole lotta shaking: As jerry lee lewis says. Grand mal seizures are the kind of seizure that most people think of: people pass out, and their muscles contract violently. It usually lasts less than 5 minutes. Sometimes people have only 1 seizure & never have it again. Sometimes people have more than 1 seizure & need to take medicine to prevent them.
