Hello everyone ,
it's been quite a while since I have had a seizure , but last week whilst at the dentist I had a very long severe seizure . I am terrified of the dentist but have managed to overcome my phobia , that was until last week . Despite taking my own diazepam prescribed by my GP , my phobia took over when I needed a filling . To get to the point apparently I had 4/6 seizures followed by complete unconsciousness including a respiratory arrest . I had no reflexes , unable to breathe for myself , didn't respond to pain stimulus or have no memory of the incident . I had the first seizure about 2.45pm and didn't wake fully until 9.30pm .
My query about this seizure is --- does anyone else have such alarming symptoms , and if so what can I do to prevent it happening again . I thought the seizures were bad but the respiratory arrest really frightens me , I am covered in bruises especially on my sternum and shoulder where the paramedics tried to rouse me . As a NEAD sufferer I have no neurologist to go to . I'm hoping my GP can help but I feel very worried and obviously concerned about going to the dentist again .
Any suggestions would be much appreciated .
Many thanks from Janet .
