A Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizure is draining to the body

I had a PNES today. It was unexpected, I wasn’t anxious, I didn’t have a headache or anything. It happened at the top of the stairs, which I am so lucky that I wasn’t on the stairs when it happened.

Afterwards, I felt drained. My legs were weak, my breathing was hard, and just overall extremely tired. My husband helped me into bed where I laid for a while before I felt okay in moving again. I still don’t feel 100 percent, but I’m back downstairs, typing this post.

It’s rough how much energy it takes out of you. I don’t fully understand it myself, but it kind of makes sense because your body convulses and that expends energy. Anyway, this is the first one since July 9th, so while it sucks that I had one, they are few and far between as opposed to when they first started.

I just feel so tired. Not like sleepy tired, but my whole body is just weak. I should probably eat something, but I don’t want to move just yet.

Just a few more minutes.

    Sorry you had a seizure, and yeah good thing you weren’t on the stairs when it happened. Good thing you are having less. 🙂 I’m having less, too, at least of the big ones. Haven’t had any big ones since I had the two for the specialist. Just a few being “out of it”s and feeling close to a seizure. But those ones that come out of nowhere aren’t fun. 🙁
