so I am completely new and I don't even know if this is the right place, but I can't think of a better place right now.
Anyways, I don't know much about epilepsy, apart from the fact that it causes seizures and that there are different types of seizures. Can you have a seizure and not realize it?
I am asking because sometimes, I have this strange feeling like I am "zoning out" and not realizing what is going on around me anymore, and usually I then lose my consciousness for like 1 second in regular intervals, but I wake up again each time, it's almost like when you fall asleep while doing something for a second but then shake it off, except for when it happens to me I can't just shake it off. Those episodes usually don't last long, up to 5 minutes maximum I would say, but afterwards I can't remember anything that happened in the moments before and I feel drowsy and weird.
Another thing that happens sometimes is that my shoulders seem to get more tense and I shake like there would be a cold shiver running down my spine (but there isn't, it's just my muscles moving without me controlling it) and then that happens up to 10 times in a row and I just feel drowsy afterwards, sometimes with a headache.
I have no clue what could be causing this, but maybe anyone here does? This has been going on for quite a long time, but it has been getting worse recently.
