    I need some medical advice concerning the seizure I just had
    ewolfe314 posted:
    I had a brain tumor removed in 1988 and I suffer from Grand Mal seizures on occasion. I take my meds,phenobarbital and phenotyoin daily as prescribed. Just 6 days ago I suffered 1 of the worst seizures ever where as I lost all feeling on my entire left side. I could'nt move my left toes or my entire left arm. I was taken to the hospital by ambulance and right to the emergency room. To me they were taking this as a Stroke. I have never had 1 this bad and its my first one in 2 to 3 years. So my main question is, Can I lose all feeling on 1 side of my body for 1 complete day from a seizure? Or Was this indeed some sort of mini stroke that Occured? On the 2nd day in the hospital ,I regained all my feeling and was released on day 4. I had a ct scan ,mri scan,eeg test ,blood work done and urine samples. What exactly happened to me?

    Hello ewolfe, Please, can you post this using use the Start Discussion Tab above posts? That way you are sure to get more replies. I almost missed your post, cuz Helpful Tips ain't always included in 'Discussions'. Tips & Resources aren't for questions??? They should/need to be reserved for helpful resources. So, please try again. I will be waiting to answer you. I do hope you don't think the message is 'rude'.

    Love Candi
