Doctor thought maybe epilepsy
I went to the nero about 5 months ago for what were thought to be mini stroke symptoms. The nero thought it may be epilepsy but I sort of was like no way, that cannot be what is wrong with me, I guess I just always thought that with epilephy you would fall down on the ground and shake. Anyway, let me tell you my symptoms and you guys can tell me what you think.
I shake all the time, several times a day and I do it when I am sitting still, like reading, on the computer, etc. I thought maybe it was some sort of tremor. Sometimes I rock like back and forth like my head really fast and other times I feel like my head is viberating uncontrollabley. This started when I was about 17. This is so embrassing because I shake when I sit in class and I know people notice because people ask me if I am ok.
Episodes where my right upper eyelid droops
Episodes were right arm goes numb
Episodes where hand eye cordination on my right side is bad like it is hard to use my right hand
Have had three episodes in the last year and a half where it felt like the ground was moving in a wave and was falling to the right.
When this happens emotionally I feel werid sometimes, I guess like I am not there, it is an odd feeling.
These symptoms happen several times a day, expect for the walking symptoms.
When this happens I feel tired and my head hurts afterward.
A few weeks ago when I was sleeping I had an episode where I was laying on my stomach and kept hiting the bed nonstop, it seemed like it lasted a long time but I hardly remmember this. After I could not move and when I woke up had the worst headach on the front of my head.
Had an MRI but the doctor did not have a copy of the actual MRI but said it was fine. When I got the MRI the doctor said they wanted to do another one with contrast after the first one with they did without contrast, who knows why? Still need to get that done.
So my question is could this be epilepsy and I have another appointment with the neruologist next week so what should I tell her?
