MS sufferer films her own 'brutal and draining' seizure and goes viral: VIDEO
















































A multiple sclerosis sufferer's video of herself having a seizure has gone viral after she posted it online.

Kate Langwine-Cooke's astonishing clip shares the moment she suffers a terrifying attack of “paralysing tremors”.

But while it's uncomfortable viewing, the 30-year-old hopes it will help raise awareness of the struggles faced by sufferers, reports WalesOnline .

Racking up more than 5,000 views since it was posted, the 27-second video shows the Wrexham, North Wales resident in a vulnerable and difficult state.

Kate Langwine-Cooke's astonishing clip shares the moment she suffers a terrifying attack of “paralysing tremors”.

But while it's uncomfortable viewing, the 30-year-old hopes it will help raise awareness of the struggles faced by sufferers, reports WalesOnline .

Racking up more than 5,000 views since it was posted, the 27-second video shows the Wrexham, North Wales resident in a vulnerable and difficult state.

This MS sufferer filmed herself having a seizure and posted the footage on FacebookBrave: Kate filmed her own seizure to show the effect her condition has
Although the camera drops to the floor following the beginning of the attack Kate describes as “brutal and completely draining”, she says the tremors continued for about 25 minutes.

She said she made the recording after her head began to shake in a rocking motion.

Kate recognised it as an “alarm bell”, having been taken to the Wrexham Maelor Hospital last Wednesday following an attack that also lasted for about 25 minutes.

In a further Facebook video where she discusses her attacks she says: “Timewise that’s quite a length of time for your body to be going through something so stressful.

“However, I’ve had them in the past where they’ve lasted an hour - the longest one I’ve ever had lasted three hours and that’s my body continuously convulsing for three hours.”

She said last Wednesday’s episode left her “semi-comatose” for about three hours.

She added: “It’s terrifying not knowing could the next one be the one that causes me to never walk again, could the next one be the one that leaves me in a coma, could the next one be the one that kills me.

“We don’t know – I’ve stopped breathing during previous ones.”

The youth worker and assistant football coach wants people to know that “invisible” illnesses, or those that are not obvious, can have a massive impact on people’s lives.

She set up the Facebook page after being challenged for using a blue badge while parking her car by a woman who suspected she did not have a disability.

Kate claims she intends having the words “My life is ridiculous” tattooed on her backside as a nod to her struggles.

She added: “My life is ridiculous and when I write my book, which I’m going to write, it’s going to be called, ‘My Ridiculous Life So Far’, because all of this - you really couldn’t make this c*** up if you tried.”
