While in a seizure, after a certain length of time, if you are left untreated, there are certain risks that can start occurring to your brain because of the lack of oxygen being brought to the brain. Have you been diagnosed with anything yet? They shouldn't be sending you home away from medical staff if they aren't sure what is causing your seizures and unaware of how bad they could get. I would demand answers or a back up plan before leaving next time. I hope everything goes well for you 🙂

Please go and see a Neurologist right away and demand a CT scan of the brain.

I so understand your problem. I had a head injury in 1999 that ended with seizures. I just had partial seizures tat were always under control. Till recently, I awoke with a migraine that messed up my speech and walking. After two hospital visits clear MRI, ct, and EEG I am sent home with this same headache relief. Just to,d your alright go on about your life...really. Then I had my first small seizure, that advanced through the next few days to full blown seizures. So off we go again, this doctor says...those aren't what.? It so happened though that morning my husband discussed with me puedoseizures. They are real seizures just not electrical ones like epilepsy. So I accepted this diagnosis. Sent away again with no change. Was given referral to Mayo. But after leaving and having a small understanding, my husband and I researched more. They can be brought on by stress, chemical embalance, hormones, menopause and in my case to high on my seizure meds. We dropped my one mec got control of the seizures. Now I am going to a menopause specialist in hopes to get the rest in order. My son told me when you start to feel funny then breathe in your nose out of your mouth. In essence hyperventilating is good to get the oxygen flowing. It also held to focus else where. It has been working for me. I hope this els you!

All I can say is.....Wow! You could be right.

That's what I think the docs are thinking they are calling them "Sue do" seizures because they can't find anything. Thanks for the advice, I'll look it up now.

I was diagnosed with "non epileptic seizures" or psudo seizures. To me this is only a blanket diagnosis, meaning its not technically "epilepsy" but its still a seizure caused by something. Anxiety and seizures are not the same thing and some doctors will tell you that because they dont have an easy diagnosis and thats just lazy. Anxiety can sometimes trigger a seizure but not without another underlying cause. I empathize with you. Your typing looks just like mine when I've had a seizure or a long one. Problem with most ER's is they give you stuff to get you by and then you are on your own. Im in this right now and have even been going to Mayo but non-epileptic seizures are hard to diagnose and they have taken too long. I finally found a private practice neurologist who I just met with once and he doesnt give up. If you can, please find a good neurologist who will test until he figures it out. Ive had to do a lot of my own research as well but I know what to ask about and ask them to test for now. My heart goes out to you. Its very frustrating but keep fighting and pushing doctors for results.
