Early Warning Signs of a Seizure

Jerking Movements

One of the most typical warning signs of a seizure is the shaking movements of the limbs, notably the legs and arms. When the brain areas, which are responsible for motor functions, are affected by the trigger, they will send false electrical signals to your limbs. As a result, these body parts would move irrationally with convulsing and jerking patterns. The symptom could range from mild to rather violent, depending on the stages and type of seizure that you are experiencing. In most cases, it can be easy to discern the sign and seek medical attention. [2]
