brain zaps

I have just read about brain zaps in another thread and I dont want to hijack that thread...but could someone please explain a little more about these. I get what feels like frontal lobe pain (like an intense headache) that only lasts a few moments, a few minutes (maybe five) at most. Are these the same things?
Thanks
J

Re: brain zaps

Nope, I was the one who posted about brain zaps. these are not brain zaps.

Brain zaps are exactly what they sound like, electric zaps to your brain all encompassing your whole brain, not just one section, they only last for about 5 seconds, and repeat about 3 or 4 times. Most of these are due to medications such as anti-d's and they are caused by missing a dose of meds.
