Sounds like he got a head rush from standing up too fast, then passed out. A lot of the times, people shake and move when they pass out, I'm not sure it's a seizure. Phone Post

You don't wake up while having a seizure and won't remember have it so I'm thinking it was not a seizure. Plus he'd have a postictal stage where you will be completely out of it. I worked in an ER and you could always tell someone faking a seizure by ask if they are having one. If they can respond and say yes, you got yourself a liar Phone Post

X2 to Kneeblock.

The egos of some chiropractors is unbelievable. Yes, you are back and neck crackers which does have a positive effect, but u are not a GD doctor!!!!

I was going to a chiro near me who was working on my lower back. I got the flu and missed a week. When I came back, I said sorry had to miss a week. She stared at me like I was an idiot and said I should have came to her and she would have taken care of it. Needless to say, I switched chiros. She's the type with the whole skeleton in her office and shit. Phone Post

MdGeist - Damn, that must have been scary. I've never had a seizure but its terrifying to think about not being in control of your body like that.

Can't believe that he manned up and still fought. Phone Post 3.0

It is fucking terrifying. It's hard to imagine for me, in fact. Have you ever slept in a weird position then awakened in the middle of the night with both of your arms asleep so deeply that you can't move them? That scares the shit out of me, so I can't even grasp how terrifying a seizure would be.

My grandfather had to give up his career in the opera because of his epilepsy. Very scary. I couldn't imagine driving or anything knowing that there's a chance my fucking body could rebel against me and lock up while I'm speeding along a winding mountain road.

Coming out and stating this publicly is another mistake to add to the laundry list of problems he's caused himself with his mouth. The NSAC is going to hear about this, he better be prepared for a mountain of red tape and roadblocks the next time he tries to get a license to fight in the state of Nevada.

Lol at all the uneducated people on here, he never said he was an M.D. but he does have some good education and i am sure he knows a lot more than anyone on here and could make a decent self evaluation but he should consult the UG and ask all u experts on what he should do! Lmao

buvaiser - lol at chiropractor education being the same as medical school training.

chiropractor is a good nick name.

Your talking about 7-8 years of post secondary schooling with 6 of them under the same curriculum as a regular doctor.

So to say he has no medical knowledge? LOL

With that said... nobody should be examining themselves. Doctor, Chiropractor or anyone else.
That's only if the chiro school required a bachelor's. but most only require the 2 year prereqs before applying. There's no MCAT or equivalent before acceptance, there's no residency upon graduation, and the classes aren't actual medical courses but subluxion and other "theories" with no basis in evidence or reality. He was correct in saying his first two years are the same as a doctor's. My first two years were the same as a doctor's as well as everyone else who went to college. That's where the comparison to actual doctors end though. They aren't even close to 6 years into a medical doctorate. They are, like he said, 2. The same as every person who finished their sophomore year. Phone Post 3.0

That is retarded. There are many different kids of seizures. Some don't even involve convulsing, but rather freezing up. Some involve only portions of the body and DO NOT cause a loss of mental consciousness. My mother had a hemmoratic stroke last November. As a result she now has seizures from time to time. When they are severe she loses consciousness and doesn't remember them. She also has minor ones that usually only affect the impaired side of her body. When she has these she knows she is having them and can respond to questions via nodding and so on. She has been thoroughly examined by a team of neurologists and they have been classified as seizures and are treated with Dilantin. STFU with your arrogant "I am a nurse bullshit." You are not a Dr.; much less a
Neurologist. Phone Post 3.0

I figured I couldn't be the only one. Hope all is well with your condition. I'm pretty lucky as it's mostly controlled, but did hurt myself pretty badly earlier this year.

And to clear up some misinformation on this thread, not everyone who has a seizure goes out. I'm fully conscious during my seizures and always have been unless I've hit my head on something on the way down. There are various types of seizures and various types of epilepsy. 

While Volkmann's seizure could very well have been brought on by a combination of lack of nutrients/hydration combined with sleep deprivation/interruption, it could be symptomatic of epilepsy. Visit to neuro and EEG highly recommended.

Maybe he just passed out. 

Why does he think it was a seizure?

Has it happened before?

 

He sure fought like there was nothing wrong with him.

Wonder what Fancy Pants has to say about this?

My sympathy, thoughts, and prayers are with those of you and your loved ones who suffer from epilepsy.

I have a neurological condition triggered by a physical anxiety disorder that causes me to be susceptible to Gran Mal Seizures. The last one I had was exactly one year ago this Saturday, and it was the worst one I've ever had.

It was behind the wheel of my Dodge Ram SRT-10. According to the police report and withnesses, I convulsed, stiffened, and floored-it into a bus stop. I broke through the windshield with my face (like a boss), and was ejected 27 feet before a tree broke my fall- and my jaw in two places, my collarbone and my shoulder, and knocked out three teeth. I spent 62 hours in ICU living off machines before I came back to earth. I spent a month in the hospital and have undergone several orthopaedic, plastic, and dental surgeries in the past year, but am now as close to back to 100% as I'll ever be.

My life has changed dramatically since then. I Thank God every day that I'm here for my two daughters ages 5 & 6. I'm also grateful that I made it out of that horrible accident completely unscathed from the waist down, and am able to walk normally and reproduce just the same, heh. However, my face will never be the same. I have no feeling in the right side of my upper lip, and limited use of my right cheek muscle- as the laceration completely tore my right cheek off my face. I can't smile as wide as I used to, but I can say that one year later, I have more use of my cheek muscle than doctors predicted I would have. I can still make facial expressions and smile, and I am extremely grateful for that, and consider it to be a miracle.

That was the scariest thing that's ever happened to me, and the worst accident I've ever been through, and a yearlong recovery that I'm just now seeing the end of. I'm glad that- through extensive testing and thorough examination- neurologists and neuro-surgeons working with me were able to determine that it was not epilepsy, and could be treated properly with the right anxiety medication, heart medication, and lifestyle changes. I've done everything possible to live according to the very specific instructions I was given, and to never leave home without my medication, and to never forget to take it, of course.

Jacob Volkmann should not be messing around with seizures. If indeed he really did suffer one from lack of sleep and dehydration/lack of nutrients, the man should know better... he needs to seriously get himself checked out and make sure there is not an underlying issue to blame. If I don't get at least 4 solid hours of sleep, I have to cancel my plans for the following day, and not drive. I can't go an entire day without eating. These are "ticks" that put me in jeopardy of having a seizure. And sure enough, not knowing this a year ago- that was exactly what the cause of my accident was determined to be. I had so much going on that day and was in such a physical and mental state of stress that I had gotten no sleep the night before, went to work, came home, cleaned the house, then at around 11PM, finally realized I hadn't eaten all day and went out to get something to eat. I was on my way back home, less than 100 feet away from my front door when I totaled my collector's item of a truck. I miss it every day, but I am more grateful than anything that no one else was hurt or involved. That fuckin' supercharged beast of a vehicle could have plowed through somebody's living room, or flattened two Toyota Corollas and a Mitsubishi Eclipse.

I have more to be grateful for and more to be positive about today than ever before. I'm here for my girls, on my way to a promising career, and my outlook on life is more positive than ever. I wake up every day trying to be a better person. With that being said, I hope Jacob Volkmann gets help, and I wish you all the best. Gob Bless The UG, and thank you for reading. Phone Post
