Some commonly reported symptoms during a seizure include numbness, tingling, or electric shock like feeling in body, arm or leg. . It's important that you’re following up with your healthcare team and if you experience any changes in seizure types/ frequency, symptoms, side effects, moods or behaviors to help determine what individual treatment plan may be best for you. You may want to consider keeping a journal or a diary to document how you’re feeling and the symptoms you describe experiencing in detail, (like you’ve done in your post), which will be very helpful to review with your doctors.
