Re: pseudoseizures versus epileplic seizures
I experience these as well although they are a bit different from yours. I don't lose consciousness and am awake and aware of it. It's mainly my upper body and arms flailing. It feels like to me an inner turmoil that needs to come out and it feels like my arms and upper body are shaking it out so to speak. I was diagnosed last year after experiencing a traumatic experience. The seizure specialist said I had a nervous breakdown and the seizures are the result. He said they aren't epileptic but are Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures, or PNES. Also known as pseudoseizures.
Apparently each person with PNES experiences it differently. If you do have it, it's due to stress, usually from some type of trauma. It's psychological, not like epelepsy. I'm guessing your traumatic experience was the MRSA. It's been identified as a form of PTSD.
You need to see a seizure specialist. If you don't live in a big city, go to one. I've found that the doctors in bigger cities seem to have more knowledge. Search online for seizure specialists. They can refer you from there if need be.
