... And I would think, since I was hooked up to the ECG machine for 7 days, someone would have noticed if anything were amiss...especially when the heart rate got down to 40. ... (20 replies)

... <<...There are HEART conditions that can cause SEIZURES!..>> Wow. Didn't know that. Thanx for the info "mom" and sam. I was at Duke University Medical Ctr. when all of this fun went down. My epileptologist never mentioned the heart thing. Actually, I found out from a nurse that she spoke to him and he said no worries. Another nurse was amazed that my doc didn't order an...

... Dogmom, Yes that happend to me after one of my cardiac workups I had. Back in 2001 I had a stress test because of these same symptoms. I went through the entire thing with nothing happing out of the ordinary, then walked out to my car, and had to sit with my head between my legs to prevent passing out! I couldnt believe it! Then in 2004 had a major cardiac workup,... (20 replies)

... Oh Annette, I can SO relate to what you're saying... "Oh just happen already!" I've had two stays in the hospital for the VEEG and it didn't help that nurses and interns and doctors would come into my room and say, "Soooo, have you had a seizure yet?" Umm, I was being monitored 24/7 via the 23 electrodes glued to my scalp, the heart monitors and the camera folliwing my... (20 replies)

... dogmom, The implant can stay in for up to a year. THe plan is to wait until another "event" is recorded that will determine wether I need a pacemaker or a defibulator implant. Then will go ahead with that. My events happen so sporatic thats why he went with this implant because I get "tape blisters" from the electrode pads you have to wear with a normal "event recorder".... (20 replies)

... dogmom, Well I went to Mayo and had a "loop recorder" implant put in to monitor my heart 24/7. Its about the size of a 5 stick pack of gum, but thinner. Because of my reactions to anesthesia they did this under a "local" to numb the area. Let me just say this>>>>IT HURT LIKE HECK! BUT..sure beat having another reaction. Unfortunatly a small artery was hit right off the bat,... (20 replies)

... Oh my goodness, Annette, I'll say it again...I can't believe how much you've been through with your health issues. but forgive me if I laughed at your "brain bra" comment! ;) Thank gosh you started going to the Mayo Clinic. You're right, we have to be our best advocates and I'm working on my trust (or lack thereof) of doctors. I just went to one yesterday because of the... (20 replies)

... dogmom, As I had mentioned in a previous post its been a rough 2 years for me but Im hanging in there. I USED to be a VERY strong person. I worked 10-12 hours a day in a very physical job. But was suffering many symptoms that my Doctors couldnt seem to find the answers for..being..Balance issues, muscle weakness, and major muscle pain, and the sporatic heart issues. Then a...

... Annette, Stop apologizing! You are of great help to me as I have been wondering if I should have this heart stuff checked out. Again..you have been through so much! How are you these days? And you're two years younger than me, it's hard to fathom why these problems arise at such a young age. Sometimes out of nowhere. I've been thinking about it--I was monitored 24/7... (20 replies)

Apr 26, 2008
... dogmom, As sam was saying ,that when dealing with a Major medical facility, the Doctors all have their own specialties, given that, they tend NOT to notice or pay attention to other body systems. I have had that happen at Mayo myself. I ALWAYS get a copy of my reports of any testing and scanning I may have had, BEFORE I see the Doctor, that way I KNOW what it says and am... (20 replies)

... Annette, you sure have been through a LOT! I'm so sorry for your problems and hope you are feeling better and better each day. And thank you for taking the time and energy to reply to my question. Your "event monitor" sounds similar to a VEEG. If you don't have the right intensity of an "event," the machine won't pick it up. It's like, "Great, I just lost 7 days I'll never... (20 replies)

... dogmom, Having seen approx 18 different Doctors in the last 14 months and having 6 surgeries in the past 2 years I can certiantly understand you not wanting to see anymore Doctors, ..BUT..Honestly I think it would be in your best interest that you see a Electrophysiologist at Duke University. I too live in the Southeast and travel to a Mayo clinic for treatment. While... (20 replies)

... dogmom, i would definetly not let this one go. He is brain doctor. He could care less about your heart. He doesnt know how to treat it or even how to recognize the problem. The best that you could do is take your knowledge back to your primary care and share your knowledge, even they can do some basic testing. If its a big deal then they will refer you on to a...

Apr 25, 2008
... dogmom, I would suggest you make an appt with a cardiologist ASAP. Is this a Major medical facility your dealing with? Did you question your Neuro about the heart issues or did he simply not address it and nothing was said? There are HEART conditions that can cause SEIZURES! Its rare to happen and often missed, because Doctors tend to get distracted by the seizures or... (20 replies)

Apr 25, 2008
... Very true, Sam. I guess I was under the impression that even though he is my neurologist, he would take interest in the fact that he was being paged constantly by the nurses because of my declining heart rate. I'm thinking now that if he wasn't concerned, I shouldn't be either! (20 replies)

... well it could be neuro related then. Just monitor your pulse for a while. Befor you get up in the morning take it for a minute. Take here and there throughout the day at various times. If it isnt that low then maybe you could blow it off and say it was related to the situation. But having a heart rate in the 30's is way to low in your situation. (20 replies)

... Hi Sam, In regards to my neurological situation-- I was diagnosed with adult-onset Epilepsy two years ago. I was completely off my meds (3,000 mgs. Keppra, 400 mgs. Carbatrol) while I was in the hospital. They were trying to provoke seizures in hopes of locating the focal point. I had a bunch of simple partial seizures while I was in the hospital for 7 days, but their... (20 replies)
