Re: electric pulses/shocks in my brain
What you described is very much like I what experience except mine does not hurt at all. I do get confused after too many or have word finding difficulties. I was told it was complex partial seizures but when I have had EEGs (a 24-hour and a 5 day video EEG) nothing showed up. I had MRIs to check blood vessels, still nothing showed. I have seen many neuros and all have differing opinions from migraine, complex partial seizures, depression, to nothing the matter at all. I have an appointment at Mayo Clinic Nov. 14th, I am hoping they can figure it all out as I have many varying symptoms that come and go as they please.
Are the "odd sensations" (as the docs like to refer to them as) always the same? Mine differ in intensity but always last about the same amount of time, just a quick flash. But I can have several in a row, go days without one, once they lasted 39 days (everyday all throughout the day). I have been on all kinds of anti-seizure meds but none of them affected them. I have one kind that I have only had while laying down and with that one, I kind of think I hear a noise with it but it is so fast I can't tell for sure. But that one can wake me from sleep. How did yours start out? Mine started in 2002, so few and far apart that I didn't think much about it untill they gradually became more often and more irritating.
