You may just be having a panic attack. Have you been through stressful times recently? Take big deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth. When you inhale, imagine inhaling calm. When you exhale, imagine letting out stress. Keep this up for a few minutes. If it's just a panic attack, then it should go away. If this doesn't make it go away, then you need to call for help. http://www.angelic1healing.com

Hi
Thanks for the question
quite often seizure and pseudo seizure are often difficult to differentiate. Yes, stress can cause pseudo seizure, but not necessarily. At the same time, stress can precipitate seizure. Some of your symptoms may be because of anxiety, bot anxiety can occur in varied conditions. Without having proper diagnosis, trying one after another, is a mere wastage of time, money and adding to your frustration and suffering. You need to consult a neurologist or psychiatrist discuss the problem in detail and then make a plan of management. Hope I have answered your query, “Wish you Good Health and speedy recovery”

My husband is 66 years old and started having simple seizures. Well, after 5 months the neurologist decided to do different tests and she discovered that his heart rates drops through out the day to like 40-42 beats per minute and she said his problem is the heart and once corrected he said his seizures will end. Is that right?

Can anyone fake a seizure? Can they bring there heart rate up on there own just laying down to 134? I believe my daughter is having seizures but some people say she is faking it because she calls for help. She knows right before what is going to happen. She does not want to die, she wants to live.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
