Thanks for reading this..
I am a 31-year-old male and I recently had a seizure (four days ago). I have only had 3 seizures in my life (all grand mal) and it has been 7 years since my last..
The night before my recent episode I had severe muscle cramps in my legs. I was under an enormous amount of stress and I hadn't slept for 2 nights or eaten/drank for 3 days. Could overexertion mixed with an extremely poor diet (practically non-existant) be the cause of this last seizure? Possibly hypokalemia (low K), hyponatremia (low Na), etc.?
A little history:
- All 3 seizures I've had have been on the first day of work or school.
- Blood was drawn in the ER and the Dr. said there were no indications. I'm not sure if he ran a metabolic panel though. Blood glucose, EKG, and CT scan were all normal.
- I currently take a low dose of adderall to help with my extremely heavy school schedule
- For the past 2 years I have experiencing numbness/tingling/burning in my feet. I do not have diabetes. This leads
me to believe I might have periferal artery disease or some other heart or blood vessel
disorder. Periferal neuropathy is most likely a symptom.
If I left anything out, please let me know.
If anybody has had similar experiences, I would love to hear about it. Thank you to anyone who reads or replies.
