Re: migralepsy? anyone heard of it?
I'm not sure I've ever heard of that... I know that a lot of this neurology stuff is overlapping, though.
For example: I have simple partial seizures, which manifest as odd sensations, seeing things, etc. Since that's where they stop, they are called simple partial seizures. If I started off with those odd sensations, then went on to have a tonic-clonic seizure, those initial sensations would be called an aura.
Migraine auras, seizure auras, and simple partial seizures are all very similar, if not the same thing entirely. To complicate things more, people with migraines can have the aura without the pain, and it's still called a migraine. When I was getting diagnosed, there was a question of whether I was having migraine auras without pain or if they were seizures. I actually got to watch the young intern and the old neuro duke it out in front of me (well, it was more like he was discussing exactly why her diagnosis of migraine auras was wrong, but still interesting). He concluded that they are seizures for a few reasons. 1) When I have migraines, I never have auras, so it would be really odd for me to get the pain without the aura, and then at separate times to get the aura without the pain. 2) An abnormal eeg. 3) The thing that finally got me in to a neurologist after 10 years of having these weird sensations was that I had one that went from a simple partial into most likely a complex partial, and actually blacked out for a few seconds, which is not characteristic of migraine auras.
Anyway, I guess my point is that there's a whole lot of stuff that is open for interpretation and seems to be a bit of a gray area. There's a lot they don't know about the brain! And there can be links between migraines and seizures.
What tests did you have done that you are waiting for results on? Let us know how it all comes out. Also, it might be helpful to write down a list of questions to take to the doctor.
