Could this be epilepsy?????? I need answers
For a couple of years, on and off, I have been experiencing the following symptoms right when I am about to fall asleep: I start to feel like I'm floating (like on a boat), my body trembles/vibrates, and I feel "off"; the strangest thing is that I see all of these strange, geometrical shapes and colorful shapes floating all around me. I open my eays and they are still there. I also had this strnge smell throughout the night like spaghetti sauce. I feel very numb, almost paralyzed, until I am able to get up and walk around, tunr on the light, then the symptoms disappear, until I try to fall asleep again. This visual and and physica; phenomena happens in spurts, I will go weeks being fine, then a week of misery. I have my full physical in amonth with my doctor which I will bring up, but anyone esle have any experinces like this; does it sound like epilepsy at all; I obviously am new to all of this. I always thought 9it was just symptoms of a panic disorder.. ANy help would be appreciated as it is freaking me out to say the least.
