Diabetic seizure

Wed, 05/13/2020 - 12:17
I'm new here, and I see this forum gets lots of attention. Sunday morning 5/10/20 my husband found me having a seizure around 4am. I had taken to much insulin and dropped to 20 prompting a seizure. I was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Fast forward till today 5/13/20 and I'm still feeling bad. Foggy brain, out of it feeling, lack of concentration, anxiety, depression, crying a lot. I was wondering if this is "normal" after a huge sezuire? When does it get better? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, Thank you for posting. The postictal phase (this is the recovery period after the seizure) varies for each individual. Factors such as the type of seizure, as well as what part of the brain the seizure impacts, affects the recovery period– how long it may last and what may occur during it. clinics and offices are now offering telemedicine options for non-emergencies if you’re unable to see your doctor in person currently. If your symptoms continue or get worse, it’s important that you’re addressing this with your doctor. You may want to call them and schedule a time to talk via phone/ other telemedicine resources you can utilize, or if they can make any additional recommendations for you.You may also want to consider keeping a journal or a diary, to document how your feeling,and the symptoms you describe experiencing in detail, which will be very helpful to review with your healthcare team. My Seizure Diary can be used to organize health issues, track seizures, manage medications, develop seizure response plans, and more. . 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, 

Yes, very normal.  Your brain

Yes, very normal.  Your brain is in the process of 're-wiring' while ensuring it does not over load the massive power grid that you have, that being your body, soul and mind.Irma
