Hi.

Do you know what kind of seizure disorder you have? How long have you had it?

Your symptoms of arm paresthesias may or may not be related to the seizure disorder. If the seizure arose from the somatosensory cortex, there is a possibility that paresthesias can occur.  However, paresthesias can also be caused by other disorders.

You should consult a neurologist if you are concerned about this symptom.

Good luck.

Hello.

What medicine are you taking for the seizures ? There are a certain anti-convulsant drugs having tingling numbness as side effects. Do you have some incoordination problem as well ?
