This is a question Losing it

Bluehamster tells us: "This morning I found myself filling my mug not a teabag, but with Shreddies." Tell us of the times when you've convinced yourself that you're losing your marbles.

Odd one...
...propanalol can be used to treat anxiety, but if you were having actual fits/seizures/convulsions of some description you would be more likely to be treated with an anti-convulsant such as tegretol or dilantin.
So are they actually fits? Do you lose consciousness and have a confused phase (post-ictal) thereafter?

They wanged me on lamotrigine for a while, but took me off when it seemed to exacerbate things. Yep, loss of consciousness, confused after - if they're not fits then it's a bloody close relative

If it looks like a fit...
...and appears like a fit, then it is a fit and I treat it as fit and give midazolam (as long as it's not primarily caused by hypoxia or hypoglycaemia - if so, then treat them first).
Maybe they are trying to tell you that the fits are not specifically epileptic in origin and as such the fits are classed as idiopathic (no known cause).
I've seen a few people have seizures who have later told me that the doctors have ruled out all the usual suspects such as epilepsy, low blood sugar, tumours, etc.
Hope you get it sorted! (BTW - not everyone gets auras or warnings before a seizure).

That's what the doc said today
About them being idiopathic. That word stuck out.

Thanks :) weirdly I get more concerned about people around me than me when it happens!
