He did a big vomit around 5:30 am after that he is air vent for breathing. ALL THE TEST ARE NORMAL NOT SURE WHY HE is not talking? But he is moving this body
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Usually he will be sedated by the doctors and he may not have gotten enough oxygen when he vomited. This can cause a shock to the body. Most often this is temporary and after he has had some time to recover he will go back to normal. It might be that his body needs a few days to recover from the seizure attack and the vomiting episode.

Did you see any time before.. people who had seizures have blood vomitings? How to avoid gettings seizures.. is there any diet we need to take care? They are saying g everything is normal .. They are saying it's not even seizures what caused the blood vomiting it's still mystery to us.. initially when he got the seizures at the age is 29 he got parllalized left hand and let. Now he is fine but he is so weak after the blood vomiting. We are curious what happened to his body when all the everything(organs)tests are normal.they are not telling anything Neuro surgeons also visited and saw the reports.
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago
Blood vomiting could be because of intestinal bleeding or if he bit his tongue but that would be obvious from an exam. If he didn’t have a seizure then is it possible that he had any liver issues? Damage to the liver can cause intestinal bleeding and vomiting blood.
You asked how to avoid seizures, there isn’t a specific diet though the Ketogenic diet may help but mostly it’s finding the right medication combination that prevents seizures.

His liver is also fine.. He ate shrimp and subway in the night before blood vomiting.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Every time do we need to take him to hospital when he gets seizures. Is their any way we can avoid it? Is it a life threating condition.. if we do not take to hospital immediately? Are there any regular check ups help us detect before getting seizours
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Having a seizure isn't life threatening. However, if he is on the right medication then he shouldn't be getting too many breakthrough seizures. If he does have a seizure and it lasts less than 2 minutes then he is okay to stay home and rest. However, it appears that this condition was more serious since we still don't know the cause of the bleeding.

He got the seizures again yesterday night at 10 pm now they gave him the seizours medication. He is responding to the messages but very weak. They mentioned it will take 68 hours to get normal.
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

That's good that he is improving. Yes, the medication should help prevent future seizures.

Please let me know if you have any other questions and I'm happy to answer them.

Today they took mri and they said blood vomiting caused due to brian stroke.. He is still in hospital.. what are the precautions do we need to take care? Is it ok with his health if he is on right medication? Donot know why it caused in the age of 30's
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago
I think at this point that’s hard to answer until they do further blood tests and MRIs to see what caused the stroke. Without that it’s hard to make a recommendations. Certainly he might need to have his medications changed.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
We are so worried .. How is his health going to be? He will be ok right if we gets the right medication?
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago
It’s hard to say. It depends on the extent of the stroke. He is young so hopefully he will recover quite well.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He is talking and eating but not sure if he gets the stoke again or not.. can we avoid strokes with the medication for future.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
What are effects of these strokes in daily life?
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago
Medications can avoid future strokes if the cause is determined. Right now we don’t know the cause and that needs to be investigated. Once we know the cause we can figure out ways to avoid it.

Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago
As for the effects it depends on the extent of the neurological exam.
Ask Your Own Neurology Question
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago
At this point it might be best to let the neurologist team make the best decisions for him. Hopefully the cause can be identified and any future strokes and seizures prevented.

I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2010 with gran mal
I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2010 with gran mal seizures. I just moved back fro Florida about 6 months ago and was raking keppra 500 mg bid. I ran out of African late August and took donate pen for sleep. I usually work different shifts so I have a hard time with sleep. The past three months , my insomnia is out of control and I have had 7 seizures. I sleep maybe 2 hours every 4 to 5 days than end up with a seizure. Than I have so much anxiety, it just increases. After my seizure I usually vomit for 3 to 4 days and I am drained. I have been in we at least 3 times. I went to poll county services to get some inpatient services because I am so depressed I don't know what to do. I had a 4 hour assessment a month ago but was reused treatment because if my epilepsy. I am so desperate I don't know what to do. I saw a neurologist last week in st paul and he put me on lamictal which all I did was throw up, my face became swollen and started getting a slight rash. The doctor said that should happen yet because I wasn't on them long enough. I contacted mn and wi epilepsy society for help but just got a list of another set of neurologists. At this time, I don't want to die but I don't want to live like this. I have to work and have been unable to for almost three months. I am at my wits end and at a loss. Can you help me figure out what to do. Can't take this anymore. … read more
