Weird episodes after seizure

Anybody heard of people taking off and running after a seizure, I've had confirmed epilepsy sense I was 18 I'm now 24, every time I've ever had a seizure I've always gotten up and taken off running down the street, I will jump out a window or run out the front door, true stories. I remember non of it, maybe bits and pieces but never the entire thing, maybe hopping a fence or getting stopped by the police for running down the road in my underwear, anyone ever heard of anything like this???

While I've never heard of that exact thing before I do know that seizures cause a short in your brain. This could be something normal or abnormal. I think this is best discussed with a doctor. Be sure to come back and update us when you learn more.

Yes my son is 9 he has every kind of seizure known to exist. He has absence seizures where he is not present either he stares into space or he is in motion doing what he was doing before seizure. Example we were walking home I stopped to tie his shoe he never stopped I had to bear hug take him he was holding his backpack with wheels accelerated speed into the street deficating himself. His rolling hr just stopped and said mommy what's wrong y r u pushing me. He had no memory of it .he insist he hadn't had a seizure look down began to cry when he saw the feces saying he sorry. I don't get much information i m told to wait for him to grow out if it he almost died from Stevens Johnson so he's unable to take meds. I keep him calm and shelter him that seems to help for now heat and anxiety are his stressod

Each person comes out of their seizures differently. My husband comes out very confused and unaware of his surroundings I know that if he doesnt hear my voice or his mom's voice and the anyone is trying to force him to do something he will become violent. The first time he had one it took 7 people to get him on the stretcher. Since then I have learned to talk to him and it seems to calm him and make him more willing to corporate. But this is truly not odd just he way that you come out of yours.
