I have had a real shock this morning as my partner had a major seizure. It was very scary as he was foaming at the mouth and drooling, jerking etc. he has never had anything like this before. Prior to the fit he gave a real guttural scream if pain then fell straight to the floor. I called the ambulance and he was duly taken to A&E. After the fit had passed he was very woozy and much more confused than normal, although he had no recollection of what had happened etc. At A & E they did the usual check, blood pressure, temperature, ECG, blood tests etc, but no brain scan. They then sent us home with a leaflet entitled your first fir, and with a referral to the epilepsy clinic in about 4 weeks time. I really don't know what to think. In my admittedly limited experience I didn't think that extreme pain was a precursor to a fit. Can anyone shed any light on whether this is likely to be an isolated incident or is it to be an expected development of the progression of the Alzheimer's? Does anyone else care for someone who has developed fitting as part if the Alzheimer's, and if so how do they cope. I'm obviously scared to let him out of my sight as I'm worried it will happen again. Help please.
