Not real ones: Tga -transient global amnesia - episode of confusional state without ante grade memory - is thought to be a migraine related event. Used to be thought of as possible seizure. If you had a " real" convulsive seizure, that would not be from your migraine. Pls see a neurologist.
Dr. Olav Jaren
Neurology 19 years experience
Seizure or migraine: Probably the greatest similarity between migraine symptoms and seizure symptoms is the "positive visual symptoms" that some people with migraines get. These feel like shiny lights, dots, waves or other visual distortions prior to the headache. Sometimes these are similar to occipital epileptic seizures.
Dr. Anita Prakash
Cardiology 29 years experience
You ought to be evaluated by a reputable neurologist and give him/her a detailed history.

A 36-year-old member asked:

Is it normal for my baby to breastfeed and not have a bowel movement for days?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Irwin Berkowitz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: Usually after the first few weeks the pattern of stooling can change from after every feed to every two or three days, sometimes even longer. If the baby is urinating, gaining weight and is comfortable this is not a problem.
A 28-year-old member asked:

Will I be able to breastfeed if I have had a breast reduction?

5 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Benner
Obstetrics and Gynecology 33 years experience
No: Most women who have had breast reductions will find it difficult to nurse, and some may find it impossible. There's no harm in trying but it is important to be realistic. The operation relocates the nipple and disrupts the nerves that signal the brain to produce and release breast milk when the baby sucks. Sometimes there is adequate nerve function and with persistence nursing can succeed.
A 21-year-old female asked:

I have extreme cramps and back pain the first day I get my period so bad and it last awhile and pain meds don't help could this be something serious?

Probably not: In younger women congestive dysmenorrhea can be very severe just before and the first 1-2 days of the cycle. If the symptoms are so severe consider using oral contraceptives which will relieve the symptoms. Talk to your gynecologist about it.

A 30-year-old male asked:

If I have had one seizure in the past is it safe to undergo a light hypnosis for anxiety I do take Dilantin which is a untheroputic level?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. William Goldie
Pediatric Neurology 48 years experience
Get off it: Dilantin should be relegated to history. It is an old drug of high toxicity and major problems with use. Talk to your doctor about getting off or at least changing to a newer and safer seizure medication.
