I've put in a call to husband's neuro, but until they call back, I wanted to poll this group of experts. Saturday husband had a seizure that is atypical for him and I'm not really sure what to make of it. Usually, his seizures consist of sensory-related symptoms (they are called "autonomic" seizures and fall in the simple-partial category, originating in his right temporal lobe). HE feels whacked out, but the casual observer would have no idea what's going on. Until Saturday, the sensations are pretty consistently the same: feels like he's going to simultaneously vomit and lose his bowels (we do hear increased abdominal noise during and after the event), breaks out in a cold sweat, feels dizzy like he's going to pass out, and generally feels very unsteady. He typically just sits down, closes his eyes, breathes deeply, drops his head down to his chest and tries his best to ride out the wave of symptoms until they pass, which lasts for a minute or two. If the feelings are very strong, he will find a place to lay down until it's over. On Saturday, he had all of these symptoms PLUS his arms and legs felt VERY shaky to him (I could only observe a very slight hand tremor) AND afterward he had a headache in his forehead. It was overwhelming enough for him that he laid down on the movie theater floor for about 5 minutes until the episode passed. I'm concerned because he's never complained of the shakiness or headache before. So, whatcha think? Like I said, I've called his neuro to check in -- I think he's due for an appointment as well as his annual MRI.
