Maybe nothing: Many pts have no warning. Auras occur some, and these folks may experience strange foul tastes or odors, or deja vu out of body experiences. After the seizure there may be a period of postictal confusion. Later, the patient may be a bit foggy, have trouble with concentration, and may be sore and exhausted.

How to feel after a seizure?

Quite variable: After a convulsion people usually are pretty tired, often sleep for a while, and may have muscular soreness. After other kinds of seizures there may be little or no unusual feeling, depending upon the exact seizure type.
