Our expert says:
I am really concerned - spastic colon does not give you convulsions, especially not ones where you foam at the mouth and wet yourself. The nausea and cramping could be what they call an "aura" or warning of an impending epileptic attack. Abdominal pain has been reported with seizures originating in the temporal area of the brain.
I think your husband should please see a neurologist to do an EEG (brain test). If possible and this happens again, try to video the episode on your cell phone to show the doctor. If one passes out from pain you will not jerk, clench your teeth or pull your head back - you will be limp and pale.
If this happens again:
Stay calm: Do not try to restrain him, let him lie flat on the floor/bed
Do not move him unless something can hurt him in the area.
Loosen tight clothing and remove glasses.
Let the seizure run its course, unless he seems to have one attack after another, without regaining consciousness or the seizure lasts longer than 10 minutes.
Remove hazards: Such as hard, hot or sharp objects that can cause injury if the he falls or knocks against them.
Protect airways: By gently turning him on his side, so that any fluid in the mouth can drain safely. Never try to force mouth open. Do not put fingers or any object in the mouth.
When the seizure ends: Let him rest or sleep. Be calm and reassuring, because he may feel embarrassed or disoriented after an attack.
