Red face Electrical zaps/shocks in head - small seizures?

Does anyone get those little zaps or shocks in their head? And if so, do you know if they are small seizures?

I'm getting them now that I'm starting to try to wean of Lamictal. I use to get them all the the time before I was ever diagnosed and before I was ever on ANY type of medication. I don't hear any type of noise, it's more of just a feeling and it's very annoying and uncomfortable...

Thanks for any advice!
Beth

Yup.....I get them on rare occasion normally mid-day. It's been a number of months since I've felt it.

Could this be from the amount of coke you do? Not trying to be rude, just read your post from another topic and I don't drugs except for the meds I need to take. Illicit drugs obviously do more harm to our brains than good and cause seizures rather than curb them.

Yes I get those "zaps" too. Like an electrical current in my head. I always wondered what it was too. I hate it.

Hi Beth,

Yes, I get them and I HATE them. I just wrote a post asking about this and then searched for zaps in head and found you.

Are you getting any better? Do you still have them or know what they are from yet?

I'm having an MRI next Wednesday. I'll let you know if they can figure this out for us!

Jeannie

I just get them sometimes when I am tired and stressed. It only happens every few months or so....but I get two or three within a day or two. I have never known what they are exactly. I tried to explain them to my neuro but just got a blank look from him. It is hard to really describe it to someone who has never had them.
