    I think it depends on what the cause of your seizures are. I read in an article once that if you hold an ice pack, it could stop the seizure because your body is now reacting to the "danger" of the cold. I never got the chance to try it in the past, but I know coming out of a seizure that helped me tremendously too.

      so during a seizure if someone like puts an ice pack on my skin it could get me to come out of it quicker and easier?

        Yes. I had ice packs where I could to recover faster. I seem to be temperature dependent for seizures and migraines. For the article, getting the ice before could prevent it all together.

    CBD helps me. Whenever I feel them coming I usually tell my caregiver (fiance) and thru administer the CBD and it helps almost instantly.

    Same. I've found out I can push it back a bit or fight it off, long enough to get to a safe place or something, but it always makes the seizure worse and usually causes a relapse seizure after the initial one.
