No reflexes in right leg after major seizures, why?

No reflexes in right leg after major seizures, why?

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?

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.

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 more

Bit my tongue in my sleep, may have had a partial seizure during the night, not sure. Tongue is swollen and sore. What can I do to help heal my tongue?

It will heal soon: You can take a couple of tylenols (acetaminophen) as needed(6 hourly). This will relieve the soreness . Also use mouth rinses with lukewarm water to keep it clean . The swelling will go away and it should begin healing in 24-48 hours. Such cuts on the tongue are completely healed in 4-5 days. Good luck. ...Read more
