is this a seizure?Sat, 08/27/2016 - 04:31
Topic: Teens Speak Up!
hello everyone, I'm not really sure how to begin this because I'm so confused. but let me try and sum it up without sounding too confusing. the first time this happened to me was a couple of weeks ago, I had a severe headache so I decided to sleep it off. halfway through my sleep, I randomly wale up due to a stage feeling, I really don't know how to describe this feeling but it was something kind of like dread. I thought I was dying. so I try to speak or move my muscles. and I realise I can't, my muscles have basically become really stiff and hard. I couldn't move it what so ever. then suddenly my eyes started to rapidly roll back and forth, and I can feel this but I really can't control it. I started blinking and fluttering my eyes. and then it was over. lasted less than 20 seconds. so I just dismissed it the first time it happened. actually atributed it to a hallucination. because I get that a lot. but just a few days ago it happened again. and again I had a headache (mainly on my left side of the head) and so I went to sleep and same symptoms occurred. so Is this a seizure? I'm not sure. pls help me, this is really scary.
You definitely need to get in

You definitely need to get in to see your doctor; or even the ER if it would be quicker than getting into your doctor. You need to have an EEG & MRI. This needs to be done ASAP. Please let us know how everything turns out. You will be in my prayers.
