A lot of your symptoms ring very true to me. I have temporal lobe epilepsy and mild cerebral palsy, your best bet is to get yourself to a neurologist (via gp referral in UK) and they'll arrange a EEG and MRI Any questions feel free to pm me
Thanks all again, still haven't got to the GP *embarassed* , we went on holiday for two weeks and OH is just that busy that he is only home for an hour or so and that's in the evening. I don't live near enough to any of my friends either, I'm just waiting until OH does his final knowledge exam on Monday (he's been struggling through it for 7 years!) and then he will be free to mind the kids while I go to the doctors. Even if a friend could come with me there'd still be the issue of finding someone to mind the kids while I went to the GP. they are all home educated so with me 24/7 pretty much xx
Hi I have epilepsy myself. I suffer from partial seizures & Grand mals. I'm going to say now, I've tried A LOT of meds & my seizures are still uncontrolled, although less frequent than they were.
I was undiagnosed for an estimated 8 years (puberty) , which is probably why I'm struggling to get control now.
In my experience the sooner the diagnoses the better.
Please don't be afraid to go to the GP & demand to see a neuro.
It does sound like some sort of partial seizure (remember every brain behaves differently to seizures).
You know your body better than anyone else, If you feel something is wrong it probably is.
