Seizures and appetite

Sun, 05/31/2020 - 12:06
I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 12 , after I had a grand mal seizure in the middle of the street after school. [October 17, 2019] Now it is quarantine, and three days ago , I had another Grand mal seizure, and lost all my appetite and I seem to never be hungry. Does anyone else have this happen to them or is it just me?

Hi, Thank you for posting. Seizures can take on many different forms and affect different people in different ways. https://www.epilepsy.com/learn/about-epilepsy-basics/what-happens-during-seizure  . We cannot determine if your lack of appetite is related to your most recent seizure, or if this is a separate issue. It’s important that you’re following up with your healthcare team to discuss this further and if you continue to experience any changes in seizure types/frequency, side effects, symptoms, moods or behaviors.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. My Seizure Diary, can be used to organize health issues, track seizures, manage medications, develop seizure response plans, and more: https://www.epilepsy.com/living-epilepsy/epilepsy-foundation-my-seizure-diary . Additionally,you may always contact our 24/7 Helpline, where trained information specialists are available to answer your questions, offer help, hope, support, guidance,and access to national and local resources. 1-800-332-1000, [email protected]. epilepsy.com/helpline , or contact your local Epilepsy Foundation: https://www.epilepsy.com/affiliates
