New to the community and found it by searching for others who suffer from similar feeling of electrical shocks in their head. I was diagnosed with seizures and Lyme Disease ( confirmed with 3of 3 bands IgM on Western Blot and elevated Lyme titer) on top of Fibro (elevated and increasing RF).... also have tinnitus. Have had 13 "seizures" in the past 6 weeks that only last a second but are strong enough to knock me off my feet if they happen when I'm standing and have nothing to grab on to. Not one while I was in the hospital for 4 days on video EEG, of course. They feel like someone is whacking my head across the room, but I'm not moving. Everything happens in my head. Had the full vision workup, and ENT says it's not vertigo or Meniere's. Neuro says there is no word in the medical vocabulary that adecuately describes this. Brain MRI showed a "spot" that was "consistent" with a history of migraines, so they are treating me with anticonvulsants to cover both seizures and migraines with auras and so far they are not working. Just wondering if any of you have ever been diagnosed with seizures because while doing some in depth research, I was shocked to learn that there are over 40 different kinds of seizures with very different kinds of symptoms! Have also read some very interesting comments from people that have had thyroid cancer on CancerCompass and the feeling of shocks in the head was one of their symptoms. I have an enlarged thyroid and nodules and am scheduled for a biopsy in 2 weeks so will cross that off my list. Have to rule out everything as Lyme, seizures and Fibro are a very complicated mix and like all of you, I'm finding that nobody really gets it. Hard to explain something that there is no word for.
