Default so i might have had a seizure last night...

really odd occurance and it freaked me the hell out

background: grandfather had parkinsons, not epilepsy

anyhow was having some REAL vivid dreams...the kind that are so creative you wish you had one of those mind recorders like in freejack

anyways the first half was CSI-esque, someone got murdered and i was trying to figure out who did it, kept having "flashbacks" like they cut to in CSI on what happened

fast forward to where i figure out who did it (in case you were wondering it was this guys twin) anyways i was being "channeled" into this guys body during the "cut scene" where the guy was chloroformed by his brother... the dude was obviosuly struggling while this was happeneing......

this is where the "seizure" happened.

next thing i know my fiance is waking me up asking if I am alright...she is FREAKING out I might add. While i was in the midst of waking up I did notice my body had been moving (woke up in mid shake?) I knew exactly what had been going on in the dream and put two and two together, so my reply to my fiance was "yea yea im fine".

mind you as soon as she woke me up I stopped moving, but my fiance let me know it was like full body shakes, seizure style. she also said my breathing was WAY out of wack when this was occuring.

I then went back to sleep freaked out and had some more vivid dreams about breaking out of prison and in the midst of the breakout there was an alien invasion (man I wish i could of written or remembered all teh aliens....so many types WAY cool stuff..only one I remember is this one that spit blood like Weird Al's "drink from teh firehose"

anyways...anyone ever experience anything like this, some of my friends are asying see a doc now, others just saying its a vivid dream and see if it replicates

was this a seizure? early indication of parkinsons?

I could be completely wrong here, but I don't think you just "pop out" of a seizure by waking up.

Doesn't sound like Parkinsons. That's usually associated with resting "pill-rolling" tremors. Damage to the substantia nigra pars compacta inhibits the production of dopamine (neurotransmitter) which is what leads to the "locked in" and "lead pipe" paralysis.

I have no idea what your episode was, but if it happens again in the near furute I'd go get checked out.

call your doctor if you really freaked out. My (very unprofessional) opinion is that it was something akin to sleep walking. You know how you see your pooch sleeping and all of a sudden he starts moving his legs like he is running after a squirrel or something?

After re-reading your post here's a theory:

In the dream you were in the place of a guy who was fighting against being restrained / chloroformed, correct?

Maybe it was just your body acting out what your brain was telling it to do?


Have you ever seen a dog when it's dreaming? Little barks and twitching legs. My guess is that you experienced something similiar.

Ditto this unprofessional opinion.
If it happens again, and you're still freaked about it, then go see a doc.

one of my buddies was telling me that the area of the brain that does all the creative thinking during dreaming is right next to the area that controls motor function, so that might have something to do with it, but he embellishes everythign so i have no idea

anyhow whatever was occuring to said guy defending himself my body was indeed acting out...i just have no idea why

DING! DING! DING!

My wife has adult-onset epilepsy (epilepsy = having a seizure that isn't attributed to a fever, sickness, or head injury) and just waking you up wouldn't be enough to end the seizure.

It was just a dream.

I've never heard of any link between Parkinsons and epilepsy.

Keep in mind, I'm no doctor....

you're not wrong.

you can't 'wake someone up' from a seizure.

anxiety attacks and the like can look an awful lot like a seizure, though.

Never anything like that, but i have had situations where ive been sleeping and seemingly had an out of body experience. I could see myself and my surroundings, but i wasnt able to move. Once i am able to move, it's very very slowly and ive had to pull myself out of bed, or in one case i remember vividly, i was in the pass seat of the car at a gas station on a trip to canada, i could see where i was (But my eyes were closed according to family) and i slowly grabbed the door handle and fell out of the car, it was the only way to wake myself up. I could feel my heart beating fast and me becoming scared. From time to time this still happens. IM not sure why.

Just a dream/nightmare. If it happens again call the doc. People don't just "wake up" from a seizure and say "im ok." They typically pass out afterwards.
