I am a 38 year old female that has never head seizures before this year. I have had anxiety issues my entire life. I do have T5-6-7 herniated, and have had spinal shots that did work a year ago. Two months ago, I had a grand mal seizure while taking a nap. All tests, MRI, Cat scan, EEG, were normal. I have had a couple episodes since during the night where I was twitching and "making noises", although woke up normally and felt fine. They wanted me to take medication, but it was so mind alterating that I can't handle it. Last night, however, just before I was falling asleep, I had a burning sensation in my lower back and my leg started to shake. Could all of this be related to my neck? Or is it all just stress? Where can I go to get answers and not just another pill thrown at me?
Well the doctors should be the experts. . . . But a uneducated guess. . . .
Sure, could be the "neck"- Your tendons/muscles are kinda connected all the way down to the back, and so on.
And just like I can get muscle twitches in my left arm as a result of a neck pain.... Well it seams possible.
Also a more psychological answer might be, that its simply the work of your mind.
About a year ago I experienced something that freaked me out.-
Felt like someone had dropped boiling water on my legs. 2 weeks later i found out it was cause i was stressing over a certain girl, and when the "issue" with her was solved, my legs were fine.
Just a little example.-
But again.- I aint a doctor, so dont take my words as facts- they are simply guesses/suggestions.-
Maybe try getting a bit of movement/workout on the lower back and shoulder/neck area- Might help out some.
