Re: Snakes & Epilepsy - Hallucinations Anyone?

as a child i would have seizures with a high temperature but i would also
have hallucinations about spiders when this happend it always started
from sleep


what i mean is the hallucinations would start while i was sleeping
even in sleep i new it was an hallucination and would be panicing
to wake up, i still remember the feeling now im 29 it was a feeling of fear/panic
and thats the best way i could discribe it (it was the most strange feeling)

when i awoke it would carry on untill i soaked my head with cold water
and cooled myself down then it would stop.

i was on phenobarb as child untill i was so sick from it my mum took me off it @ around age 9 ...i must have been on it about 3 years

after i was taken off it i never had a seizure again untill i was 15/16
but still had hallucinations with high temps

funny thing is around the time seizures started up again i stopped getting hallucinations from high temps ???

for the first time in years this week i have a real high temp due to a chest infection im not having hallucinations but i am having real strange thoughts
the other day i was convinced i had lung cancer i must strees i dont
i even went to hospital and made them xray my lungs

i know its my temp thats doing it cos after taking paracetamol
what brings my temp down the strange thoughts are gone.

untill i seen your posts ive never made any connection with my epilepsy hallucinations and strange thoughts ive been getting this week

but i think it could be possible as i have
generalized epilepsy where the whole of my brain is affected.


after writing all this im unsure if i wana post it but im going to anyway
