Leg Soreness After Seizure
I was sitting here helping my sister than all of a sudden my leg started shaking like I was having a seizure and my head started hurting?
Seizures (Uncontrollable Jerking Of Limbs) (Definition)
A seizure is a symptom in which a person has a convulsion or epileptic attack, usually involving jerking movements of the head, limbs, and rest of the body. It represents abnormal brain function, and can be caused by fever (mainly in young children), by brain infections or tumors, by drug abuse or overdoses, by chemical imbalances, sleep deprivation, etc. ...Read more
Post ictal: The brain will at times shut off a section of the body following a seizure. This is referred to as todd's paralysis. The region of the body that shuts down may have no reflexes and remain limp and flaccid for several hours. There is gradual recovery back to baseline. This would indicate that the region of the brain for that part of the body was primary in the seizure event. ...Read more

Passenger in MVA air bag deployed causing loss of leg function and seizure. 3 weeks later I have nonstop migraines affecting vision hearing and mood?
Sure to be migraine?: Not sure these are migraines. Given there was trauma, a post concussive headache is more likely. The symptoms are a bit different, and it should be possible to sort them out. Are the legs recovering? That is the most serious part here. If so, you can probably try certain treatments for the headaches. Rest is important.

I have seizures really bad and I have been blacking out and feeling dizzy i also wake up really sore i take 600mg of dialantin a day is that too much i keep having seizures and feelng worse
Not : Not all neurologists are the same. If you have a diagnosed seizure disorder and the medications your neurologist has prescribed have not stopped the seizures or decreased their severity and frequency, you may need other medications instead of or in addition to dilantin, or you may ultimately need to have neurosurgery to remove the part of the brain that is abnormal and is where the seizures are started. So you may need to see a neurologist with a special interest and training in epilepsy, an "epileptologist". These may be found at academic medical centers more often than elsewhere...In alabama, that would likely be at uab in birmingham. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
