Simple Partial Seizures??

Until last night, I thought I was losing my mind! For the past six years now, Iíve had what Iíve always called ďepisodesĒ where I get the weirdest feeling in the entire world. The best way Iíve been able to explain it is I feel like everything around me is moving so fast itís in slow motion, my heart speeds up, and I am fully aware of what is going on around me.During these I can still move and respond, however I donít like talking or listening to people talk during them, because I it sounds/feels different. Iím usually more focused on trying to make the feeling go away, than talking to people. For the longest time I used to try and stop the episodes to no avail by listening to music or jumping in the shower. But it got to the point where when theyíd occur, Iíd sit on my floor and start crying, scared out of my mind until it went away. I remember having these episodes as a child, but they stopped before returning about six years ago. Now theyíll happen a few times a day, or a handful of times a week, or every few weeks. Not stopping for longer than two or three months at a time. Itíll last anywhere from 30 seconds to three minutes, and Iím always extremely tired and confused for a long while afterwards. Three years ago I started having migraines, in which Iíd have auras and pass out-but I never had the physical pain of a migraine. Iíd have auras, and then get really tired, and sometimes faint, I always just assumed I was having silent migraines.Thereís never really a rhyme or reason to when I get them, I can be busy talking or doing something and bam, or Iíll be lying in bed. Sometimes I get these episodes in the shower, and sometimes Iíll smell this horrible burnt egg-like smell, when thereís nothing there. I am almost 98 percent sure this is simple partial seizures in my temporal lobe. Does this sound like simple partial seizures? Or am I really just crazy? Haha.

Re: Simple Partial Seizures??

you might want to ask you doctor, it does sound like it could be a seizure.

Re: Simple Partial Seizures??

Hi there sorry your goign through this, yours sound similar to mines when i had auras, heart pulses go up and feel very uncomfortable around people and try n hide to be alone and fight the feeling. I had the strange smells at times, and sleep right after my spells for hours and woke up feeling weird. I had Right anterial temporal lobe epilepsy due to mesial sclerosis (dead brian tissue) which I had removed in 2007. So far free since Thank God! But you must defenetly should go see a neourologist and explain this to them. They will do an EEG and go from there to see if you do in fact have epilepsy which sounds like a yes to me. Don't be afraid and get treatment now. I waitted 15 years before realizing that the medications were no help to me and surgery was needed. I wish you all the best of luck and any other questions come back and ask.


Laura
