Can tinnitus trigger seizures?

Can tinnitus trigger seizures…?
The ringing is just like before I lose conscience, after I sense the, “aura”.
Hate to dwell on the never ending ringing because it’s TOO CLOSE to the same sound. Like it’s wanting/trying to suck me back in to a seizure.
Freaking SCARY.

Im sorry you feel that feeling! It is freaking scary!!! I have it when I'm having an aura before a grand mal and it makes me very anxious. It makes me think that I'm going into a seizure too 😞

Hello @lynette1975

While I have not had seizures, I have read about seizures being preceded by auras. Could you explain to me what an aura is like? Is it something you see or just feel? Is it like dizziness?

Hi @hopeful33250
There are many types of auras (also called petit mal seizures). When I was younger I thought they were panic attacks. My auras start with a blank stare and a lightheaded/dizzy feeling, I get nauseous and feel my stomach "drop" like a sense of doom. My hands get sweaty. Lately I have been having ringing in one of my ears at the start of the aura. Sometimes I have de ja vu. It's an overall weird feeling. Sometimes they are very quick and sometimes they last a couple of minutes. It makes me have extreme anxiety because for me, it can lead into a grand mal seizure. I used to try to distract myself by getting up and moving around to think about something else. But it doesn't help all the time. Hope my description helps, but it can be different for everyone 💜

Thanks, @lynette1975. I'm sure that you are right in that it is different for each person. I appreciate the information you provided. It helps me to understand it better.
