Can seizure followed by grand mal seizure and stroke be recurred?
I had a seizure a few days ago and went to the emergency room. I then had a grand mal seizure. I was prescribed keppra. also was already on Aggrenox from a may episode with a tia stroke. but had no after effects. I am wondering if this seizure thing is going to be a regular re curring event.or is it unpredictable
sounds as if you are making a distinction between "seizure" and "grand mal seizure". Is this true? So a grand mal seizure is technically referred to as a tonic clonic seizure because of the rhythmic jerking of the limbs. I don't know what the other type of seizure is that you refer to. However, I can tell you that if you have actually suffered a stroke and it was an embolic one. in other words, a blood clot provoked the stroke and a portion of the cortex was damaged then, the risk for seizures and seizure recurrence as a result is definitely higher than in people who have not had strokes. you should see your doctor who treated you for the stroke and ask to be sent to a neurologist if you are already not hooked up with one.
