Exclamation HELP Tremors or seizures getting worse - December 27th 2011, 03:01 AM

Recently, the past 3 days I have been having tremors or seizures I am not sure which but keep coming and coming. Here are my symptoms:

Shaking/moderate full body
Shaking/violently at times
Exhausted after shaking stops
Lost time(See below)
not able to sleep
increased heart rate at resting position(80-130BPM)

Yesterday I was laying down listening to the t.v like I always do but then I started shaking even harder then I already was and the next thing I new it was an hour or so later. NCIS was on when it started getting worse then when I looked again Sanctuary was on almost halfway through. Never happened to me before.

My heart rate has always been low 60-80BPM when I was resting or not doing anything but it has been increasing recently. Currently as I write this my heart rate is at: 108BPM aprox.
I am not hungry at all, I havn't been able to sleep much and when I do I break out into a cold sweat and wake up shaking a little.

What I need to know is if this is a seizure or just a tremor relate to something else. I do not currently have a ride to the ER or Urgent care clinic and I don't really want to go if I don't need to. I hate hospitals of any sort. What should I do or try?

Do you have medicine?

First, a doctor is best in these situations. Seizures are very dangerous. If you can get to a doctor this week that would be best. You could hit your head, bite your tongue, or just fall over and hurt yourself pretty badly. So, you need to see a doctor if your meds aren't working or if you don't have meds.

There is nothing that I know of that you can try that will prevent seizures. By the way, if you are losing time, it is likely seizures and not tremors.

Since you are afraid of hospitals, having someone go with you can make it much less scary and boring. Same with a doctor's office. If you live with family or friends then you should let them know what is going on. This way you won't be alone as much and if you have a seizure they can take action to prevent you from hurting yourself.

Get to a doctor ASAP, this could be a very serious problem. Everyone hates hospitals, but this shouldn't be overlooked. And if this does turn out to be somthing serious not getting control of this immediately could pose result in a life long serious condition. If your lucky enough to live in a medical marijuana state high CBD medicine can drastically reduce seizures.

You're having seizures. I used to have them, too. Unlike me, you can feel those seizures coming on. During a seizure the signals to your brain basically go haywire, and you remain unconscious for a while afterward. You need to get to a doctor immediately and get put on some medication that will help you. Seizures are very very serious, and you can hurt yourself badly if they don't get controlled.

I have had more than one near-death experience due to my seizures. You have to get on medication as quickly as possible, and you should have someone near you for a while after you start your medication so they can watch you and take care of you if you have one. There isn't much that can be done during a seizure besides keeping the victim's head from slamming the floor. After a seizure one of the best medicines is rest.

As mentioned above, you need to go to a doctor urgently. It is very unusual for people to be aware of their seizures whilst they're having them. But i'm not an neurologist so there may be a specific type of epilepsy that you're experiencing. That, or it could be psychological. Not saying you're putting it on- I screamed at my neurologist when he said this, but your brain is a VERY powerful thing. It can cause you do have all the symptoms of 'seizures' but they have an underlying anxiety to them. It's hard to explain

But make sure you go to your doctor sooner rather than later.
