What Does A Gelastic / Dacrystic Seizure Feel Like?

We asked our patients recently and here’s what they shared…

 

“When I had seizures as a kid used to get a feeling that went from my head to my gut. I used to feel them coming on and tell my parents.”

 

“I didn't feel anything in my stomach, but overcome with happiness/the need to laugh for no reason.”

 

“A feeling that everything is perfect and wonderful."

 

“Sometimes feels like everything is perfect then anxiousness”.

 

“Sometimes my husband can tell I'm going to have them before I do. My speech gets thick and my face often droops a bit.”

 

“Tingles in the gut...tingles in my face.”

 

“A feeling of doom.”

 

“An urgency to run, flee.” “Pressure in my stomach toward my heart.”
