Small aura's

I have had juvenile myoclonic epilepsy for years, usually a small warning or precognition of a possible seizure "watch out!" is a small aura, feeling weak and with like a small electric shock for a few seconds, now be wary of a seizure, the number of times this warning has saved myself from harm or from an possible impending seizure, I get to bed a.s.a.p. usually sleep it off, sometimes even deep breaths, relax for a minute or two can help! As stress, lack of sleep, or inconsistent recent routine usually causes my seizures these 'routines' can help causing a seizure?

I should have mentioned these are small or mini auras, much smaller than the larger, longer ones where a person would know that they will have a seizure for sure! Usually deep breaths relax and the small aura disappears altogether, and as I said larger aura straight to bed!


Hi Adlon57

Thank you for sharing how you cope with your auras. It’s really good you have something in place that helps.
