ludwig80 Posted August 14, 2011 Report Share Posted August 14, 2011 Basically as many know I did have abnormality normality show up on first EEg so I have a script of Keppra and think I will start tonight after yesterday. I got very little sleep not last night but the night before, and woke up around 6 to help with a garage sale cause I'm broke. Felt as anyone would after 2 1/2 hours of sleep. Worked outside in triple digit heat until noonish then took a shower finally ate something and went out to run a errand. While I was driving, I so tired that I started feeling that nodding off feelling- where you are almost falling asleep but you jolt back awake. This happens to me alot when I'm trying to sleep, sometimes I'll fall asleep for a split second and actually jump from it . It's a lot like a wave passing over you or a pulse that keeps passing as a sensation in your head. Anyways, i wasn't actually falling asleep but very close, luckily I was close to where I was going. I kept fighting falling asleep and eventually I woke up a bit. I pulled off into a hotel parking lot cause I could feel something weird happening. Cause I wasn't falling asleep anymore but the pulsing was become very intense and still felt like a wave passing through my head at certain intervals. When it peaked the sound of my radio also intensified for a second and then back out. At this point, vision become very dreamy/dr/dr and also slow frame rate of vision became slightly worse. Cognitively, my brain stops comprehending things very well, I'll need to read things very slowly and try hard to understand it, listening seems distant and feels like it takes me longer to understand things being said.. I feel very disconnected during this time, more so than any normal Dp/Dr that i experience daily. Zero emotional connection to anything that I should find some relation to. Inability to think about long term issues and have to think hard about consequences or rewards of doing anything(when I do understand them there's no emotion that goes with it). This pretty difficult to explain, but this what I tried to while it was happening. I've had experiences similar to this before, used to happen alot the day after drinking(haven't drank in 13 or 14 months now, miss it, but gotta do what you gotta do). I could feel it come on and it would happen but my vision frame rate would be significantly slowed down. This time wasn't as intense as those, so instead of freaking out and not trying to think about it- I focused completely on it. Trying to identify ways to appropriate describe the feeling. After about 20 min, I needed to take of some business so I went in a interacted with a friend for about 10 min. I managed I think, considering everything was happening to me a the moment. Then I went and sat in my car for another 20-30 min until things seemed to go back down a bit. Drove home and was super tired and worn out, so went to sleep at 7 p.m. on a Saturday. Unheard of for me, i didn't wake up until 6 this morning. Still dark so slept until about 930. Still feeling a bit weird vision and cognitively wise this morning.. Last time this happened it my vision was really choppy for weeks and hppd was aggravated bad.. This time it wasn't as intense I guess, but def still feel a bit weird, and almost like it could happen again. Been about a year. I was really hoping these things wouldn't happen to me again, always afraid of how bad my vision can get and just pray it doesn't stay that way. Seen many doctors, some say it's nothing epileptic related, others say migraine, my current neuro says likely some kind of simple or focal seizure.
