My story is complicated,but I'll try to make it simple & short.
At age 19 I fell and hit my head...I would get dizzy and feel like I was in an elevator that was falling fast.My EEG showed my brain waves were going too fast...so the dr. put me on dilantin for 3 months and it corrected the problem...but I still to this day have the buzzing sound in my head,but not as bad as it was.
Several years later I had to go on klonopin for a few months due to stress and health issues.
A couple years after that I started having episodes where I would get an aura(looked like a misty fog)then I would see flashing streams of light for about a half hour.
I went to a neuro,had an EEG and it showed bi-temporal slowing more so on the left.It was so weird,because certain things would set it off...like if there were lines on the tv or some lights would set it off too and even some music.The neuro suggested tegretol,but I went for a second opinion and that neuro said that a migraine diet would help me.Well it did help,but I still was getting the episodes,but not as much.
My second EEG was abnormal also.It showed the persence of paroxysmal appearing transients of predominantly left temporal origin.During the waking state several left frontal temporal theta range transients seen with sometime associated sharp forms and sharp wave-like discharges also reflected in anterior temporal leads....
So I was given no meds...I just did my best to get through all of that.It lasted for 3 years....then I was fine....it just went away.I was good for another 3 years and then it came back,but not as bad and as often.Then T would have an episode off and on for the next few years.
I haven't had a spell for almost 2 years now.I had an EEG in Nov.'06 and it was normal,but I had a spell in Nov.'07.
Sorry for the not so short thread...I just wanted to give some of my history here....so I can lead up to what's going on now.
I have to also comment that I get B12 shots monthly,because I have an occult B12 deficiency(which means I have low-normal B12 with high MMA).
So my neuro dx me in early 2007 with "sensory disturbance"...it's likewhen there's noisy traffic and it quiets down it makes me feel confused or when music stops playing.
A few weeks ago I was just walking downthe stairs in my house and suddenly I felt so funny in my head...like the whole room was closing in on me,but then after a few minutes I was fine...I didn'tpanic or anything...it was just a weird incident.Then about a week & a half ago I woke up one day and felt really spaced out;like I lost part of my memory.I will be okay and then I feel like I lost time.This is really freaking me out.I went to my regular dr. and he was really concerned.They did a mess of blood labs,but all looks okay.
I get an overwhelming weakness through my whole body and it feels like I'm gong to have a convulsion and then I feel so spaced-out.
I have to find a new neuro,because I moved and he's too far away now.I'm feeling a little frightened now,because I just can't seem to figure out how I got this way....again.
What I am wondering is if anyone can relate to the spaced-out feeling I'm having off and on.
I know I need to have a current EEG test...and I hope it will show something,because I just don't feel right.Also the whites of my eyes are very blue....which the dr. said is usually fro a brain or heart problem.
I am feeling really so down.....not nervous at all,but just really low.
