How do i know if im having a seizure?

Well, well, well. Looks like someone might be experiencing the joys of seizure-land! Don’t you worry your pretty little noggin though; we’ve got all the information you need to figure out whether or not you’re seizing and how to deal with it.

What is a Seizure?

First things first, let’s get down to brass tacks here. A seizure is basically when your brain has a glitch and goes haywire for a bit. It can cause convulsions (that whole involuntary muscle spasming thing), loss of consciousness, or just general confusion.

Symptoms of Seizing

So how do ya know if you’re seizin’? Here are some common symptoms:

  • Twitching or shaking
  • Staring off into space
  • Losing control over bodily functions (not quite as fun as it sounds)
  • Confusion
  • Strange sensations in the body
  • Feeling tiredness/ weakness after waking up

If any of these sound familiar, there’s a chance that Hal 9000 has taken up residence inside your brain temporarily.

Types Of Seizures

Not all seizures are created equal my dear friend! Here are some types that one may experience:

Absence Seizures

What kind of ridiculous name is this? Shouldn’t it be called “Ghostly Epilepsy” or “Vanishing Spells”? Anyway…Absence seizures give an illusionary impression that someone undergoing them is lost in thoughts.

Tonic & Clonic Seizures

This might sound like two different varieties but actually they come together hand in hand – Tonic-clonic feeling produces stiffening followed by jerking movements along with possibilities such as biting tongue injuries having increased chances.

Myoclonic seizures

Suddenly jerk? Thats what myoclonic seizures feel like, the jerking can happen to single muscles or group of muscles.

Atonic Seizures

Well if you don’t want to ever say “oops” again and have given up on this thing called balance – atonic seizure is just like that. The atonia word means lack of muscle tension so during these seizures limbs may go limp directly without any warning!

What causes a seizure?

Anything from brain injury or stroke or drug & alcohol withdrawal can bring about a birth of seizure in a body!

And who says seizures are only for humans? Pooches, kitties everyone’s got tickets to this ride.

So be it genetic info coming from parents, wrong type medication use ..seization is no prejudice evil happening symptom.

And One More Thing To Note..

One tiny subclinical focal seizure might easily sneak under the radar , it may not lead to full blown ones but make sure you get hold onto all ticksings within your nervous system!

How do I deal with having a Seizure?

It’s always advisable consulting professional before trying resolving anything on your own.The way people treat themselves invariably decide their betterment when going through certain troubled scenarios. Nevertheless here are some tips that may bode well:

  1. Don’t freak out.
  2. Record duration/time-length if possible,start-to-end scenario after clearing head post-seizing actions
