Re: seizure type symptoms again!
It is to my understanding that alot of times an actual seziure has to be happening during the eeg.Sometimes people stay in the hospital for a few days to a week or so and the doctors try and force a seizure.By sleep deprivation and other means.I believe I told you before I have had spells myself except I do totaly lose consciousness.Mine is like I pass out right before it I typicaly would feel naseous like I have to get sick or its gonna come out the other end.I make my way to a bathroom sit down seconds later my heart pummels,I get extremly dizzy,vision starts going black.Then I go out.My husband has witnessed this a few times says I kind of shake a bit not much,my eyes roll back.When I come to im a total mess.I never have felt in my life as sick as I feel after this happens.I am also totaly out of it derealization hell.After a half hour to an hour im alright again just tired.I have explained this whole thing to many different doctors and I always get the same responce "anxiety/stress." I have had two EEG's both normal amoung many other tests all normal.This has happened to me about 6 time over the last 13 years my anxiety disorder started with one of these spells and then I was in anxiety hell for an entire year after that spell day in and out.I do believe anxiety/panic/stress can cause things like this eventhough it is rare.
For me it is very sporadic though I can go years with no faint.Sounds like what happens to you is happening more often.If it was me I would ask to see a specialist in Epilepsy.This doesnt mean I think or that it is Epilepsy but a specialist could better rule seizures in or out then just a General practitioner.
by the way I wanted to ask .....This thing that happens to you have you been taking medications since it started?......I ask this because some of those can cause stuff like this too.
