    Migraines and Seizures?
    Honkadoodle posted:
    Yesterday, I woke up with a migraine headache that would NOT go away, so I did the only thing I know to help when it is being persistent: Sleep! Thank goodness I was at my folks' house, because during my nap, Dad heard me making weird noises, and when he found me, I was convulsing, with mucus and blood coming out of my mouth. (the blood was from biting my tongue) He managed to wake me up, but then I didn't know who he was, who I was, what year it was, etc. I don't remember any of this; he told me about it later. All I remember is "waking up" to find two paramedics talking to me. Even after that, it took me a while to get my bearings about me.

    My question is, was the migraine the trigger for this seizure? I have had the kind of migraines that mimic strokes, so I'm just curious if this is another extreme symptom, or is this something more serious?

    Hi Honkadoodle and welcome :)

    Did you get to the doctor? Did you call at least and speak to someone there? Please follow up with the doctor and let us know how you are doing. There is no guessing at this, you need to see the doc ASAP.

    Hope you are feeling better.
