I just went through the community and couldn't find any recent posts on pseudo seizures. lately I've been getting a lot of them. What makes me angry is the stigma that gores with the word "pseudo" when people hear the word they think we are faking and that we have control. A couple week-ends ago I went through a series of very bad ones. My daughter ( who was visiting ) said I went through about four of them consecutively and was hallucinating and was unresponsive the whole time. Naturally they called an ambulance who when the medics got there decided that "Pseudo seizures" didn't warrant taking me into the emergency room. Now, I don't know about the rest of you but I feel they should have had more compassion and took me in. Pseudo or not, a seizure is a seizure and >warrants medical attention. I would be interested in learning if any of you have experienced this and what you did about it if anything. I look forward to your replies.
