Symptom day before seizure/Cold Hands Pale Complexion


I have a 16 year old with Autism who had his first seizure in December.  I did not put him on medication until his second seizure in March.Since March has had 2 seizures a month.  The day before his hands are very cold and he loses color in his face.  As the lamictal dosage is increasing it has been affecting less of his body during the seizure.  He is basically seizes from the neck up and left arm.  He has limited verbal ability has anyone shared these symptons please let me know and describe what you are feeling. I thank all of you you go online and share your stories.  It really is informative and helpful for us newcomers.
