What is happening to me?

You are probably looking at this website because a grown up thinks you might have had a seizure.
There are lots of different seizures.

You might know what’s going on when you have a seizure. Or you might not know anything until it’s all over.

This is what having a seizure can be like for some children:

  • Getting a funny taste in your mouth
  • Having a strange feeling in your tummy
  • Pulling or tugging at your clothes
  • Going stiff, then falling to the floor and jerking
  • Staring into space for a few moments (people might think you’re daydreaming)
  • An arm or leg may suddenly move on its own

Sometimes it’s really hard to describe exactly what it feels like for you.

Most seizures only last a few minutes. Some only last a few seconds.
