Sun, Feb 2 8:04pm · Loss of consciousness, screaming, incontinence and weakness in Epilepsy & Seizures

Hi,she is a lot better now,she has started resuming her daily routine as a house wife .She has stopped the medicines given to her on the day of the attack for 15 days ,due to severe side effects such as drowsiness and weakness. She met her cardiologist;his view was that she did not have TIA ,in his view her BP dropped causing some symptoms resembling to TIA.He has reduced her medicines for high blood pressure prescribed by him after her angioplasty in 2016.Now her next appointment is with her neurologist on 10th February to update on her condition and on any further medicines if needed .
Regards

Her glucose level remains high despite of insulin doze.Her last HB1C in January 20 was 9.1.Her glucose level at the time of TIA attack at early morning was 170.Doctors have changed her medicines for glucose and hopefully her HB1C will start improving .

Thanks for your advice ,will contact them.
I think the doctors could not estsblish the cause of the episode and gave medicines out of caution to avoid recurrence in future.

It was a non stop cry for about a minute as if she was frightened of something .During this her urine was also discharged .
The medicines were causing lot of drowsiness and weakness in the muscles and therefore she discontinued these.The doctors put her on these medicines out of caution to avoid any possible future repeat of the episode.

My wife 57, diabetic on insulin , angioplasty done in 2016 had brief episodes of altered loss of conscience in September 2019 and repeat in January 2020.In the latest episode she started screaming in early morning while still in the bed , had urinary incontinence and left sided weakness. She was unable to walk at her own and fell twice, luckily without hurting herself .She was rushed to the hospital where doctor’s initial findings were that it was TIA. Her EEG showed intermittent dominant left temporal sharp and slow waves. However her brain MRI and brain CT were normal without any abnormality .Her 48 hours heart Holter monitoring showed no abnormality .Doctors were unable to find cause of this attack. However they started giving her Levetiracetam HPL 500 mg and Lamotrigine 25 mg daily. She was discharged from the hospital after 3 days .She has lot of weakness and can hardly walk at her own. She has discontinued the new medicines after noticing the severe side effects .She has her follow up appointments with the cardiologist and neurologist next week .In the meanwhile I request Group members to provide their valuable input which may be helpful for my wife’s treatment
