    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Iwas sitting in the living room with my daughter and husband abd while I was watching Tv I had a weird sz. I was listening to my CD player while watching the TV. My had kind of git "stuck" in one position and woul not move no matter how hard i tried, I was going to open and change the CD but couldn't

    What t ype was this. It lasted 30-40 minutes and then was over as if nothing had happened.

    Nancy I see the other 'weird seizure' post Still. But you are rite. there is no response. In fact, I don't recall posting a comment. I Know I didn't. I just cheked & Both Posts are 4 hrs ago. How to chek Immediately after Posting to see if your Topic went: Look above the Green letters Clik on the WebMD EP Community blue letters. Or clik your refresh tool.

    Now a reply: That would be a complex seizure. You were Aware! You noted time it lasted. You didn't Lose Time. It could have been caused by the music or TV. Yes, Music/songs can have tones that our brains don't like. But, I remember you are Photosensitive, also. So TV makes sense.

    Love Candi
