Temporal Lobe Epilepsy & Seizures

Postby misterjuanperalta on September 21st, 2015, 5:24 pm

I have been diagnosed with focal, temporal lobe seizures and do not experience all the symptoms listed below.

Though not an exhaustive list, all these are symptoms of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy or seizures.

• Hallucinations or illusions such as hearing voices when no one has spoken, seeing patterns, lights, beings or objects that aren't there
• Rhythmic muscle contraction Muscle cramps are involuntary and often painful contractions of the muscles which produce a hard, bulging muscle
• Abdominal pain or discomfort.
• Sudden, intense emotion such as fear.
• Muscle twitching (fasciculation), including the tongue.
• Abnormal mouth behaviors
• Abnormal head movements
• Sweating
• Flushed face
• Rapid heart rate/pulse
• Changes in vision, speech, thought, awareness, personality
• Dysarthria

I have also been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea.

Temporal lobe seizures (and myoclonic seizures) commonly result from damage to specific areas in that part of the brain. This can be due to a head injury, infection, or damage to a portion of the temporal lobe due to lack of oxygen, brain tumors, genetic syndromes, or lesions of any sort. Many of these problems also produce brain-tissue scarring called mesial temporal sclerosis.

I may say good news are 1) this is not MND 2) TLE is practically relatively well controlled, as far as I understand a state of medical art.
