It is a common experience for many to feel unwell during a seizure.
A common cause is a condition called asthenia.
Asthenia is when your brain stops working properly and your muscles get tired.
People who are asthenic are usually anxious, moody, and often have difficulty concentrating.
But sometimes they feel a seizure as well.
They might be in a high-pitched, labored breathing pattern, or they may feel a quick movement or a bump in their body.
Sometimes it can be difficult to tell what is happening, especially if the person has not had seizures before.
If you suspect that you have had a seizure, you can tell if your symptoms are related to a condition known as hypoxia.
It’s not possible to diagnose or treat seizures alone, but it can help to find out if you are at risk.
This article is a summary of a class on asthenias and seizures that’s part of the Epilepsy Foundation’s Epilepsia Course.
If your symptoms aren’t improving, it’s important to talk to your doctor about what you can do to improve your overall health and well-being.
