    Question Am I having siezures???

    I was wondering, is there anything you can wear, (some type of monitor,) to detect if/ when you're
    having a siezure? I was whether you could do that instead, of, being hospitalized?

    Thank you,

    Phyllis

    That would be great. I had 3 seizures then my heart stopped, while I was in the back seat & my other 3 family members were in the car.When my son opened the door to let me out, he found my lips were blue & my eyes rolled back (he gave me CPR saving my life). If they had know I had had a seizure I wouldn't still be hurting & using a walker.

    Omg, Lor!!!:( Thank goodness, you're okay!!:( I'd love to get a "siezure", dog, but, unfortunately, that's not going to happen, because, we have 2 little rats with hair, already, and I don't think, he /she would be very welcomed!...Lol I really want to look into a device which, can let you know, a siezure's coming, but, that can
    happen only, if, Medicaid will pay, which, I think, would be a joke!!:(

    The magnet that goes with the VNS works just like that. The magnet is used to cause the VNS to produce an extra pulsation thereby shorting out the seizure you may be detecting. You may know this however. I can't recall your history. Tattoo

    Hold, on! Are you, guys, talking about, surgery? Does this thing require surgery? If that's the case, I wouldn't
    do it. Yes, I'd like to know if, I'm having a siezure, but, not that, badly!
