I was the same exact way for years before I had my first gran mal seizure. It wasn't so bad at first, though. I was just having some small motor seizures on my right side once in a while, and they would come in cycles of a few weeks to a few months. But then when I was 19, they got so much worse. They got more intense, and I was getting them very frequently. The night of my Gran Mal, I couldn't sleep hardly at all because I kept waking up every half hour or so (or less) from the whole right side of my body tensing up really hard. My shoulder was actually getting sore from all the muscle contractions. But then one of those seizures generalized and went into a Gran Mal seizure. I've been taking meds ever since, which has helped a lot.
Let us know how everything goes after seeing a Neurologist.
