Shanita Epilepsy is a complex problem and can be caused by many things such as brain injuries or even something that was forming while they were growing inside of the mother where the brain is concerned but better to get this answer from a doctor. ADHD can cause problems but at this point haven't heard of it causing seizures so cannot be sure until he has had tests done so get him to a neurologist soon.
I have a question for anyone that knows for sure about this. I was wondering if having ADHD has any effect of a child having seizures. I keep getting mixed responses. My son had his 2nd seizure in this life last night from the first one which was 3 months ago and I was wondering if his ADHD has anything to do with his seizures. He is going to his neurologist for the first time hopefully soon. Just wanted to know if any other parents has a child that has ADHD noticed this in their child and what did they do. Any advice would be helpful and welcome. :)
Debbie sounds good and hope all works out all right! Have a wonderful day!
thanks Tammi. dr. has cut me off now on 1 med and still taking 2 other med but have a feeling he'll be cutting me back on one of those when I see him next. bracelet does not embarrass me at all since I've worn it for ages, but i'm also deaf if my cochlear implants fall off, so there is more on bracelet than that, but like I said wearing it does not bother me at all. but please thank you.
Debbie are you still taking medicines which are keeping you from having seizures? If you are still taking medicines but the brain surgery seems to have stopped the seizure activity its wise to wear the bracelet just in case because you don't know you might never have another one but if stopped by police for any reason and are carrying medicines they are going to want to know why and the bracelet is going to tell them the meds are not illegal drugs but it is up to you to make that decision and if the bracelet embarrasses you because you have had no seizure activity than take it off and don't worry about it but keep a card with you of medicines you take so if stopped by police you can show them that and you won't get into trouble. Just something to think about and have a nice day!
ok I've got a ?. I still wear my medical bracelet because of med reasons and mine does say seizures but I had brain surgery last year and have not had them now for 15 months. should I still wear it or take that off.
The brain is a very complex thing and emotions drinking and all that goes with it can cause it to produce a seizure and than there may never be another one even something you are allergic too can cause problems and so you don't know what really triggered the seizure activity but if tests were taken and there showed no problems and he wasn't diagnosed with epilepsy than just watch what is eaten and drinking and stay away from those things and going without food is never good so keep an eye on things and report if anything else happens.
Hypotension, anxiety, fear, even enjoyment can and often does cause higher degrees of electricity in the brain, that have the ability to cause a seizure. The brain itself communicates (per neurons and microtransmitters) to other area's of the brain which cause us to do or think on or about certain tings. That is why doctors will sometimes treat epilepsy with 2 medicines.
Tammi, your right. I found out they had a routine years ago, when mine was ignored not once but twice. I told the hospital, my doctor and withdrew my membership from Medic Alert. Where I live now in a Senior Residence, anytime a person goes to the hospital, their file goes with them.
