I just recently had 2 seizures (in June and this past Sunday) after being 22 months seizure free (go figure), but I've felt worse after the last two than I have any other time (this last one especially) - my legs feel like they've climbed Mt. Everest! Fortunuately I was at home when both occurred - especially since I have no warning whatsoever that it's about to happen - one minute I'm putting a garlic chicken casserole in the oven, the next thing I know I'm on the couch with my daughter asking me if I'm ok. Hopefully the achiness will go away in a day or so.

My wife believes I experienced my first seizure about 9 days ago while watching her give herself a shot in the leg. The only thing I remember was feeling light headed and I quickly got down on my knees and put my head down to avoid throwing up. Then I blacked out and don't remember much except I was sweating, crying and fighting to breath. It felt like a horrible dream. I took the day off of work and was fine a few hours later however 9 days later I find myself waking up every morning around 4am feeling like my back is broken. During the day i feel fine unless I lift something heavy. I hadn't thought it was serious enough to see a doctor but I would love to hear thoughts of others to find a little relief and to be able to sleep again. Thank you,

If you just had something you believe to be your first seizure, you need to see a doctor, pain or not. In fact, you should have been taken to the emergency room immediately. It's important to get evaluated, diagnosed and on a treatment program if needed, because generalized seizure can kill. And they start for a reason, which also needs to be looked at.

Good luck.

I have had two seizures. One in 2009 two hours after a blow to the back of my head. Was discharged and continued life as normal but in Nov 2013 I had a tonic-clonic seizure out of the blue.

Luckily I was in bed, I had woke up and got some water, got back into bed and started to convulse. As described by my girlfriend because I don't recall even waking up that day. Now I have constant back pain, a dull pain between the vertebrae, somewhere between t2-t5.

I try to lay flat on the floor to maintain posture because of the discomfort I get when pulling my shoulders back. I am scheduled with a Neurologist to discuss EEG and MRI result, however, I do not like the way he thinks. He dismissed my initial head blow having any association even though I was 17 with no family neurological disorders. He was also quick to give me a prescription which I am not taking. Really just looking for a natural solution to my back pain because I am very nutritious, eating organic and taking vitamins. I try to exercise regularly but the pain has kept me from being active at all.

Thanks for your time, Dakota

dakotaL,
You did not mention if your taking seizure meds. If your not your running a high risk of more seizures. I have had two and I am on dilantin.  If your not please consider it. You don't want to be driving and have another one.

Hey. I wanted to share my experience with back pains and seizures as well. The date was October 6. I had been seizure free since 2009 and was very confused when I came to. My girlfriend was over that night. She said throughout the night I repeatedly spoke of back pain. When I woke I could hardly sit up and breathing was very difficult. I also have a pretty high pain tolerance so it began to bother me. Im one who never takes prescription meds. Im also very athletic and in swell shape. Sneezing is the worst kind of pain. I kid you not; I almost cried earlier this afternoon after sneezing. The pain resides just between my shoulder blades and in my chest. Ive also noticed any sort of exercise Iis unbearable. My doctor did a check up on me and she said, "everything appears normal." My BP was fine, breathing normal etc.. im hoping its merely my muscles being worn out from the episode. I hope this helps anyone who needs insight to this. Wish me luck! God bless you all. I hope everyone lives happy and healthy lives

I've had P.T.S.D. for a number of years & taken various anti-anxiety meds in moderation (trusted by my Dr. to take as required).  With recent media reports of hostage situations, my stress levels went up & I ran out of medication.

Thought I'd be Ok for 3 days untill next Dr. visit.  Not so : had a seizure (fortunately whilst lying on my water bed).  Had all over muscle soreness for 4-5 days and now (Two weeks after) still have very sore mid back muscles - v/painful to breathe in sharply at times.
 
I've found that gentle all round exercise is helping.  Hang in there & balance rest with daily moderate exercise.  I haven't found anti-inflamitory meds of much use however muscle relaxing meds do help a bit. Rob  blush
