RE: Vaso Vagal and Grand Mal Seizures



Yes, I am told that I have had a grand mal seizure four times. Apparently, not real thrashing, but arched back, limb stiffness, some jerky movements. The last time, I was told that I kind of made a snorting sound, too. Go figure...

Yes, I just had my first episode, (I believe it was, my obstetrician thought it was and I am seeing a referral doctor next week), but all symptoms match EXCEPT I do not ever have the racing heart.....but just worrying and thinking about it, starts an episode....sometimes, (I have had about 6 now in the past month) I can get myself out of a full blown one, even though it should be noted I have not actually completely fainted yet.
