Since I was dx with diabetes and have my blood sugars under control I have had trouble with low blood pressure and increase in palpations. My doctor has not lowered my blood pressure meds as of yet. Two months after the diabetes dx I began having grand-mal seizures, left temporal seizure spikes on EEG. Can the seizures possible be due to the blood pressure dropping and lack of blood supply to the brain along with the palpations? Have you ever heard of anyone having this trouble before. I have had 24 seizures since august 25 2002. Thank you for your time, skynoel1
Low blood pressure can lead to seizures in special circumstances. I have seen 2 or 3 patients who feinted from dehydration, but did not go to ground because they were seatbelted in their car. They were noted to feint, and then develop seizures 30 to 60 seconds later because they became very hypotensive and/or hypoxic.
I have never seen someone who developed seizures from low blood pressure, but who were otherwise able to function. Further, low blood pressure will not lead to left temporal lobe spikes. I'm not a neurologist, but my recollection from residency is that these indicate a common type of epilepsy.
I have recently gave birth in November 20 2002. Then the following month (December 26th) I had a for which they say a seizure in the bathroom at my grandmother's. I think it was caused by my blood pressure but they won't listen to me. My blood pressure dropped enormously after i had my daughter and is still very low. Is it possible that my blood pressure dropping so fast is what caused my seizure?
