My question lies in the possibility of diagnosing me with a partial simple seizure. 39yr old male in excellent shape with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and mother who died of a stroke as a result of heart disease. My symptoms where involuntary movement in lower left arm in a rotating fashion lasting up to 30 seconds. Then for approx. 5 secs I couldn't move my fingers. Then I got a numb spot in left corner of mouth and tingle on left said of tongue. I had no strength loss in any limps or hands. I was found to have a PFO with a positive bubble study, and showed it again with TEE at rest. Initial diagnosis was TIA but the Neurologist believes I had a partial simple seizure. MRI-Clear, CT-Clear, initial EEG clear. I'm doing a sleep deprived EEG today. If my EEGs come back negative can it really be diagnosed with confidence that I had a partial simple seizure?? I've found lots of literature with stroke like symptoms being diagnosed as seizures. Should I be concerned? My neurologist dismisses the idea of a pinched nerve that I may have incurred due to a very hard opening in a skydiving event. What sort of questions should I be asking? Sorry for the long post and thank you for your time. I just want to be educated and not told what the issue is I had.
