Question Macropsia? Things feeling larger than they are?

Hello all,

I'm new to these boards. Hope everyone is doing well! I was recently diagnosed with epilepsy and am still trying to get my grasp around a lot of things. Hopefully someone can help me out with my question below.

I am wondering if any of you have had this experience with your simple partials. Does anyone ever have a seizure when some part of your body, say your hands or fingers, feel extremely large? I've had many of these and my neuro has told me that this is called macropsia. I've looked this term up but all I can find references vision appearing larger than things really are, not things on your body feeling larger than they really are. Has anyone heard of this of this or have experience with this? I'd love to hear your stories as so far I'm the only person I know with this little oddity!!

Thanks so much and have a great weekend!
