  • have had prior seizures and all were on anti-inflammatories and busbar. this time my md had inceased the dosage and wthin 25hrs, seizure hit. there were no pre emptive s/s of the oncoming seizure and the recovery time was so much longer. also this time, the intensite was extreme. I bit both sides of my tongue and it took at least 7 days to completely recovery. locally I was with my husband and he witnessed and performed all the precausioinary measures to keep me from injuring myself any further. I have multiple bruising. also, difference this time, I was terrified before during and after the episode. to be honest, i'm still scarred and this is totally out of character for me. have consulted with my md and have been taken off the medicatons. I'm still scarred and if terrifies my husband for me to be going thru this.
