Caroline sounds like seizure to me!! The not being able to speak or remember,at least that is what mine was like. DONT MESS ARROUND YOU BE SURE TO SEE DOC.
thanks Pauline,I GO TOMORROW AT 12:30…NOW I HAVE TO GO HAHAH…
Pauline,now that you say that,is having a seizure like that? not knowing how to talk ,I just didnt know how to say avm.could not for the life of me get it rite.,i didnt even know if he was next to me,or still on the phone,what i do rememebr is ,I could not breath at one point,it happened twice in a matter of say 20 minutes,but just crazy,i tryed to hard to say avm,and didnt know how,nuts,but im much better now,heheheh
that has happened to me before my avm was even diagnoised followed by passing out it was a partial siezure…so the docs say …but still be sure to go to your doc and have it checked out…are you on anti siezure meds? if so…maybe its time to get your levels checked ???take it easy and let us know what the doc says thinking of you xxxx
Caroline!!! ah im praying for you hope all goes well keep me updated!
thanks guys ,i go tomorrow,im noton any meds yet,never had a siezure befrore,so im not sure what it was,it was just scary,today,i feel fine,il get back with all of you tomorrow!!!xxxooo
My poor Caroline…how frightening that must have been for you! Make sure that you tell your doctor exactly what happened. It does sound like you had some type of seizure.
I agree with others… this is something to share with your doctor. Prior to my daughter having her seizure, she lost her words and could only make limited responses. I think that her issues were due to having a bleed during that time, which eventually caused her seizure.
I will look for your update and am sending well wishes until then.
thanks everyone…yeah it was scary,i do belive i know what happened,i looked up parial seizures,and thats me to a tee,never had one and thanks to pauline leading me in that direction and me doing some researchh,its all that happened to me,never had one before,hope to never have another! I see the doc tomorrow,im sure he will poke me to death with tests,but im fine tonight,just some odd head ains,had them for some time now,illpost tomorrow nite,thats for your prayers everyone,love you!!!
Caroline, i hope that everything is okay and that this never happens again!
Caroline, hope you’re OK!! Please let us know what the docs say. xx
Hi Caroline, how are yo doing ? What did the doc say?
My first thought was seizure also, maybe your other “passing out” episodes were seizures. I’m not sure of the time difference, but have you seen the doctor yet? Hope all went well.
Hi everyone,no didnt make it to doctors today,only talked on the phone,he got called into hospital,so im seeing him Monday morning at 9 AM…from what he thinks without seeing me and listening to what i said,he thinks its a partial seizure,he will run tests monday morning,thank you for all the wonderful prayers,ill get back with everyone Monday,Monday will be here soon,rite!!!
