Hi I continue to bite my lip while I'm sleep & cannot stop until I wake up then I cough.... Am I having seizures??
Considerations: Would be reluctant to diagnose nocturnal seizures based upon your description, as a sleep disorder would be more likely, such as sleep apnea, but also nocturnal bruxism. Would start with an overnight sleep study, and proceed based on outcomes. Should be an easy benign answer, and perhaps a night splint would solve the issues. ...Read more

Also, no driving, activities at heights, using power equipment, etc. ...Read more

Maybe something else:
If you are feeling alright now, you do not need a CT scan. If you are sure it was a seizure, you should first visit with a neurologist, then perhaps other tests would be helpful. For seizures, blood tests, MRI and EEG are helpful. But what is a mini seizure? That is important too.
Avoid k4/k2. That stuff causes odd symptoms. Stay away. ...Read more

I have a hard lump on my head that I have had for a while now with seizures periodically now getting terrible headaches what could this be?
Lumps in the dumps: What's on the outside of the head (lump) has nothing to do with what goes on inside. Seizures cause headaches. Seizures and headaches may be the result of the same underlying condition (e.g., brain tumor) or can be completely unrelated. You need some diagnostic clarity--see your neurologist. ...Read more
I had a focal lesion on my head at birth due to some doctors negligence. Can it trigger simple partial seizures now that I am in mid-twenties?
Almost any focal brain lesion can act as a focus for partial seizures. These can happen at any age and may appear years after the original insult.
Simple partial seizures may be difficult to pick up on routine eeg and may need prolonged monitoring. Generally speaking, we can only pick them up on routine eeg 30-40% of the time. ...Read more
I have woke twice now with pins and needles on the top right side of my head. I have seizures is this a type of seizure. If not what does it mean?

Can someone explain to me why, every now and then I get strange head sensations, like my brain is vibrating? Am I having some kind of mini seizure? Ty
Nah. No mini-seizure: I'm not sure what a mini-seizure is supposed to represent but it's not a vibratory sense in the head. Certainly wouldn't be a bad idea to have a neurologist take a look at you and review your symptoms with you to look at the possibilities. You may benefit from some testing. I'd be happy to discuss things with you in a private consult: www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi ...Read more

10m old baby boy. Development milestones met. Still does jerk few times a day for a month now and move head up down while playing. Worried if its seizure?
Query spasmus nutans: "Nodding spasms" is a rare condition that includes nystagmus, titubation, and torticollis (head tilt). Although common for infants to jerk once in a while, I consider a parental concern to be an important factor in the evaluation. The condition is benign and will self resolve. However, a complete evaluation by a pediatric neurology will put the matter to rest in order to rule out other conditions. ...Read more

You should not be driving or operating heavy machinery for now. Make certain your friends, family, coworkers know about your seizure disorder and recent head trauma. ...Read more
