I been having some pretty funny episodes here lately which I’m convinced are simple partial seizures.. I’ve had a ct scan at the emergency room and it has come back clean. They referred me to a neurologist. The neurologist completely dismissed everything I told him that I’ve been experiencing/ going through and told me they are panic attacks! He said not all panic attacks feel the same but my symptoms are exact panic attack symptoms, but stated I am not having epileptic seizures. He is only willing to do a 1 hour eeg and send me on my way. I went to my GP and she is willing to refer me elsewhere for a second opinion because I know my body, and these aren’t panic attacks. Can somebody help me? I’ll list the symptoms below.
They’re typically right after I awake in the morning/wake me out of sleep/if my boyfriends alarm goes off in the morning. Or sometimes during the day. Currently I’m having these “episodes” multiple times daily. I also feel weird before the “episodes” happen, like I can feel them about to take place if that makes sense.
•Feels like my brain is deprived of oxygen
•I get quiet and anxious, don’t like to be spoken to or people around me speaking period.
•I get restless or sometimes just freeze in a ball until the feelings pass
•Ringing in ears/hissing
•Breathing slows/ SOB
•I get nauseous sometimes
•I swallow repeatedly
•Tingling body from head to toe
•Hazey feeling in head/just like my brain is ”fritzing” if that makes sense/like when the tv screen is fuzzy black and white= how I feel
•Raised heart beat
•Blank stares almost zoning out
•Aware but Difficult to find words
•Things around me look real, but it’s almost like a hazey real like a fuzzy real.. like maybe there’s a film between me and the real world I guess I can’t really put it into words.
•Just an overall WEIRD feeling
Afterwards, I just feel off/dizzy/lightheaded and it’s a relief to “come back to earth” as I call it, and am exhausted and typically take a nap. If not, I just feel odd until I get some sleep.
Sorry if it’s too long, I hope somebody reads & replies. I really need advice, do these sound like seizures to you? TIA xoxo
