Epilepsy & Seizures Support Group

Epilepsy (often referred to as a seizure disorder) is a chronic neurological condition characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. It is commonly controlled with medication, although surgical methods are used as well. Seizures (or convulsions) are temporary abnormal electrophysiologic phenomena of the brain, resulting in abnormal synchronization of electrical neuronal activity.

I'm not sure if I'm an "ora" or not. I had a minor surgery on my leg on Tue. Since the surgery I have been feeling the symptoms that my nero told me I might feel before an onset of a seizure.

I am light headed, dizzy and getting sick. I'm on my second day feeling like this. If I'm having an "ora" would I have had a seizure right away or can an "ora" last for a few days?



" An epileptic seizure that involves only part of the brain and impairs consciousness; often preceded by a simple partial seizure (aura, or warning)."

It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
