How are you? Stress in the body or illness usually triggers seizure. According to research, stress can cause changes in the brain which affect how the nerve cells work with each other, especially those around any damaged areas of the brain. This can increase the risk of seizures occurring.There are other possible seizure triggers such as skipping of medication, hormones, drugs or food. You can learn more about this through this link: http://www.epilepsy.org.uk/info/triggers.html
Sometimes, you do not remember what happens during or even after the seizure. It is advisable to have medical alert tags so that the people around you will know what to do. It is helpful also to have support groups in your area or even in the net, one example is: http://www.geocities.com/epilepsy911/
I hope this helps. Take care and keep me posted.
Yes, yes and yes. Not enough details for this post crash epileptic to give any useful advice without more detail, but adult onset seizures I'm getting to be an expert on and would like to help but need more detail.
I know that I must have been out for a second or two as when I realized what had happened after the bus had stopped moving my teeth were buried into the seat in front of me and I must have screamed because at the time it seemed as if a lot of people were looking at me or so I thought. I don't honestly recall hitting my head but I ended up in a seat that wasn't the one that I was in before the first initial part of the crash. We were traveling about 80 km/h in snowy conditions and I had leaned out into the aisle when I heard a guy tell the driver to slow the hell down. A few seconds later we hit the side of a cement barricade and deflected back across the road into the side of a mountain and slid along the side of it. I told the paramedic at the time I didn't have any head pain once I was off the bus but my ribs were broke and that was all I was really thinking about. I know they did some sort of cognitive tests(think that's the word for it) and said I seemed alert. My first aura so I learned later was about a week after the accident. At the time, I thought maybe it was stress but I've never had such intense feelings in my life that I described as up/down moments later on. It wasn't until May that I had a grande mal seizure and tests done that I realized that what I was experiencing were seizures all along. I've never had these in my life so just trying to figure why now. Thanks for your response.
