Hi, I am a 36 year old female and I had just had my second grand mal. It seems that every time I get stressed out about something I have a siezure. This last time I was outside with my 4 year old son looking for my dog that had ran off on me. Finally after 2 hours of looking for him I found him. I picked him up in my arms and thats all I remember. My son said I fell down on the ground face in the dirt against my fence and had the siezure. Meanwhile my son is trying to pick my face up out of the dirt screaming and crying for his mommy to get up. The next thing I remeber is being in the house looking at my son as a tear fell from his eye and asking him what was wrong? I had no idea I had a siezure then I felt the pain in my face. I was bleeding from seizing against our old rusty fence. It was like my face being rubbed against a cheese grader. I got my head together and called for help. I have a hard time remembering anything after a siezure. It takes about a hour before I could make sense of things again. My point is I thing stress triggers my siezures. All my tests and cat scans came back normal so the doctors can't find a reason for my siezures. The doctors put me on Keppra this time so lets see if that helps. Otherwise I am trying to stay away from stress. Its hard with a 4 year old but after all he has seen he understands mommy is sick and tries to be a good boy and helps me in any way he could for a 4 year old. Now my first siezure was on Father's Day of 2010 now its 2 months later and I had my second siezure. Now, with this medication and less stress lets see what happens. The doctors don't have an answere for the siezures but maybe I can figure this out. Thanks for listening to my story and I hope all the people who don't have answeres get them so they can better understand whats happening to them. I will let you know if my theory is correct if it should happen again. Good luck and thank you!!!!!!!
