Aura (symptom) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Auras are particularly common in focal seizures. areas result in symptoms ipsilateral to the seizure focus.

An aura sensation can include some or a combination of the following:

The aura can stay with a migraine sufferer for the duration of the migraine; depending on the type of aura, this can leave the person disoriented and confused. The time between the appearance of the aura and the migraine lasts from a few seconds up to an hour. When occurring, auras allow epileptics time to prevent injury to themselves and/or others. Most people who have auras have the same type of aura every time. It is not uncommon for migraine sufferers to experience more than one type of aura during the migraine.

In addition to being a warning sign to an upcoming seizure, the nature of an aura can give insight into the localization and lateralization of the seizure or migraine.

Symptoms Diagnosis

Because partial seizures often are not recognized, it's important to know what the symptoms might be--most seizures don't resemble what you expect they look.

A normal EEG does not rule out a seizure disorder. The EEG can pick up abnormalities in the normal electrical rhythms of the brain, via electrodes are attached to the scalp. To read more about how seizures are diagnosed, see: Epilepsy Foundation: Diagnosis. To diagnose seizures a medical history is taken and an EEG (electroencephalogram) is performed. Although few EEG labs in the U.S. To detect photosensitivity, clinicians typically rely on EEG readings during photic stimulation (rapid pulses of flashing light). offer it, testing for pattern sensitivity is another way to detect vulnerability to video game seizures. Seizure activity that occurs in parts of the brain that are particularly distant from the scalp may not be detected by electrodes on the scalp. The best way to test for abnormal brain response to video games is to play a video game during the EEG session. However, EEGs are not always conclusive. Not all people who are sensitive to visual stimuli respond to flashes of light. Some have an abnormal reaction to certain patterns or to modulating colors.

Treatment of Dissociative Seizures Attacks

Self Help website for patients with functional symptoms / conversion disorder seizures, functional movement disorders and functional sensory symptoms.

This section is based on that research but also on the authors own experience in trying to assist many hundreds of patients with these attacks to get better. But in recent years there has been some progress in this area.

Patients with dissociative seizures also sometimes feel concerned about the consequences of an attack. "Perhaps after one of these attacks I might not come round?", "Perhaps I might be left disabled, or 'out of control' in some way".

Psychology? I'm not crazy.
