Symptoms after a seizure

Most often I have nocturnal seizures but occasionally they do happen during the day.  Does anyone experience a general muscle achiness from head to toe?  Sometimes it is so bad I cannot go back to sleep even though I am exhausted.  As well as feeling like you have been clenching your teeth.

Yeppers.

I am just getting over the muscle soreness after a seizure the other day. Your OTC painkiller of choice can help.

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

Hi amy I am currently dealing with my daughter having what I think are abscence seizures.  The other day she told me she felt really fant at school and had to sit dwn as her legs went like jelly. The she said her body from head to toe were really aching and she had a headache.  After reading your thread and seeing that you ached after your seizures I am wondering if that is what is happening to her. I am waiting for her to see the neurologist for the 2nd time as the `1st time they ruled out epilepsy and said it was just daydreaming. Now she isin her teens and I think its happening more. Mind you I have never witnessed her doing this but her teachers have. She just goes into like a stare and then just snaps   out of it. I found out something I never new by reading the threads. Thanks.

hi there, my name is melinda, my son, who is now 7 year old, has had epileptic seizures since he was 8 months old, he has had both petit mal and grand mal episodes and his Dr. told me that i could tell the difference between a staring episode and  daydreaming by trying to get his attention by calling his name, tapping his shoulder or moving my hands in front of him and if he doesnt come out of it then it is a siezure but if he does come out of it then he is just daydreaming. This might work for your daughter. he has been on tegretol and now on depakote

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

Oh I do. 

Mine is typically in the arms and legs and they hurt so bad for sometimes hours afterward.  It's like I've instantly yanked at the same time with great effort all the muscles in both arms and legs and they hurt and ache.

recently though, with the last seizure earlier this month, not only was it my arms and legs but also my upper back, neck, and back of head as well so...  yup - me too.

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

yep me also i have headaces none stop on front and back of my head ive bit my tonuge in my sleep get dizzy a lot and when i lay down i some times have a feeling like a shoking going threw my whole body

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

I also feel as if I have been hit by a bus the next day. Muscles in the legs, neck and back feel as though I have done strenuous exercises, and if I bite my mouth, that is excruciating for a while. I find a herbal remedy helps for the bruising - it is called Arnica here in South Africa. One justs dissolves a few little pills under the tongue. You are not alone!

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

I just had a seizure last night and everything still hurts. I couldn't eat my sandwich at lunch because I can't seem to chew currently. my doctor tells me this is normal and to take Advil. I understand how frustrating the pain can be!

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

I have horrible after effects!!!  My head is usually pounding, my arms and legs feel like jello.  I feel so weak and I dont want to move.  Most of the time my mouth hurts from gritting my jaw during and biting off pieces of my tounge.  I usually sleep for a few days after a seizure.

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

my daughter just had a seizure driving  and had an accident do you know if thier are any laws about how many days before you can make legal decisions

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

It could depend on your state/where you live. I know for me, I have to be seizure free for 6 months before they will consider letting me drive again. I hope your daughter is okay. I have had several seizures while driving and I thank God I had safe endings with each, but the last one, way to scary to consider driving again. I don't want to put anyone else in danger.

Re: Symptoms after a seizure

I have general muscle soreness as well. I also feel dizzy and light-headed and nauseous. And I also feel like I'm clenching my teeth--I am told I bite my tongue while having seizures. I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels this way!
