In brief: What was happening

During the status.
Were you having tonic clonic movements or were you in a post ictal or other form of unconsciousness? Seizures can result from a number of medical illnesses. Temporal lobe seizures can be hard to find on an EEG but during a seizure there should be something. I am suspicious that something else may have been happening and would welcome further information . Exam and labs.
