Hello everyone, I think I have epilepsy but wanted to ask if anyone else has seizures like this. They started way back when I was only 12 years old, I would get this nervous feeling in my tummy, then I would start jerking, but not so much that I would fall down, and I was completely aware of what was happening, my body would shiver like I was very cold, it would last for about 10 to 15 minutes. These episodes were very rare, only having them once every 7 or 8 months. Then when I was 14 I was diagnosed with asthma, and given a fast acting inhaler with albuterol, every time I would take it, I would start to tremble, doctor said it was just a side effect of the inhaler, and it was just causing me to get jittery. This has continued for almost 15 years, I have never seen a doctor, because the jerking was not that bad, but a week ago, I started having the jerking so bad that I can't stand up, it is very strong jerking, and it's my whole body, I still get the nervous feeling right before it happens, and I am doing this 2 to 3 times a day now, and it is lasting about 15 to 20 minutes at a time but I never pass out, I am always fully awake , but now, after the hard jerking stops, I still have these little jerks all day long, it almost goes away at night but my husband tells me that I do jerk some all night long, I have made an appointment with my doctor, but it will be a few more days before I get in to see him. My muscles are getting so sore from the jerking, that I dread waking up in the morning and it seems that the jerking is getting harder now (I didn't think it could) and I am scared as heck, I don't know what I am going to do. One of the things that start the seizures is eating, every time I eat a meal, about an hour later, I get the nervous feeling, and I start jerking, to be honest, I think there harder on my husband, than they are me. Is 15 to 20 minutes a long time to have a seizure? I am sorry this post is so long, but I am a bit emotional, and tend to jabber when I am nervous.
