seizure disorder or PE?

Postby expert@preeclampsia.org » Fri Mar 09, 2007 03:40 am

Past seizure disorder come back or pre eclampsia ? I started having siezures around age 13 about one a year tell i was 18 then they stopped . I went through 2 pregnancies that were both early with no clear reason then my 3rd one I had alot of dizziness and headaches and excess of amniotic fluid and after birth about 30min. had a seizure first diagnosis was pe but after they heard of past seizure disorder they thought maybe that. I am now 21weeks preg. and dizziness and head aches and facial tingles my ob decided to send me to a neuro. just in case and he put me on some seizure meds but the symptoms are remaining and i had a seizure last week. Im begining to think maybe this is pe and not seizure disorder. any thoughts? need help thanks.

It would be very unusual to have a seizure from preeclampsia at 20 weeks - especially without obvious preeclampsia. I suspect that this is your seizure disorder.
