8,135 Possible Causes for Giddiness and Lightheadedness, Nodular Heterotopia of the Grey Matter, Seizure

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    Heterotopia present as nodular foci of grey matter intensity on all sequences. They do not enhance. Heterotopia Images of a typical subependymal heterotopia.[radiologyassistant.nl] […] generalized seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both ictal asystole and eating reflex seizures are rare conditions that are closely related to temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Focal Onset Impaired Awareness Seizure

    Electroencephalography (EEG) is performed as part of the seizure workup in all cases. It is more sensitive in the immediate period following a seizure.[symptoma.com] Heterotopia present as nodular foci of grey matter intensity on all sequences. They do not enhance.

  • Hypoglycemia

    Postoperatively the patient demonstrated both generalized and focal seizure activity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe hypoglycemia eventually lead to glucose deprivation of the central nervous system resulting in hunger; sweating; paresthesia; impaired mental function; seizures; coma[icd9data.com] We present the case of a 61-year-old woman with severe hypoglycemia that induced seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

[29] Of all neuroleptic drugs, however, haloperidol rarely is associated with seizures (minimal effects on seizure threshold).[emedicine.medscape.com] Seizures Methamphetamine-induced seizures may be isolated events.[calsprogram.org]

  • Hyperventilation

    It is well known that hyperventilation induces absence seizures, and it has been reported that hyperventilation can induce complex partial seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] or giddiness, profuse perspiration, and tingling sensations in the fingertips, face, or toes.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] After prolonged hyperventilation and immediate stimulation a seizure resulted with 33 s of motoric activity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiogenic Syncope

    The entire seizure lasted 54 seconds.[jnnp.bmj.com] After reviewing the ECG during the video-EEG recording, cardiogenic syncope, resulting from a cardiac arrhythmia, was identified as the cause of the seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If the patient has had repeated syncopal episodes or if the patient has had seizures that are difficult to control with anticonvulsant therapy, ambulatory ECG monitoring may[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypoxia

    After extensive examination and consultation with neurology, the patient was diagnosed with hypoxia-induced seizure, but was not felt to have an underlying seizure disorder[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These symptoms were followed by grand mal seizure. Serum sodium level was 108 mmol/l.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When hypoxia lasts for longer periods of time, it can cause coma, seizures, and even brain death.[my.clevelandclinic.org]
