I started having "spells" after the birth of my daughter. They were so unpleasant I vowed I would never have more children, and I didn't. The "spells" are hard to describe. The typical spell would be a deja vu picture or memory followed by a wave-like sensation of mild to bad to mild. Sometimes, when I would have a really bad spell, I would go from deja vu right to Bad, without the gradual buildup. It was an altered sense of reality, like I was there but not there. I would get nauseus and often vomited. The spells lasted about a minute with no loss of consciousness. I had multiple spells every day. This lasted for 7 months. And then, like someone flipped a switch, they went away. I hadn't had a spell in over 20 years and then suddenly, I had a spell. I just dreaded the idea that I was going to start having spells again. It's been a few years now. The spells aren't as bad or as frequent,so I just tried to accept them. Finally, I had a really intense one at work and I decided I needed to get help. Who does one see for "spells?" I thought I was crazy, so I went to a psychiatrist. The Psychatrist told me I wasn't crazy, she said she thought I was having seizures. I was STUNNED! That never entered my mind.
I just got my EEG results this morning...Abnormal left temporal region. It looks like focal seizures. I was actualy relieved. That probably DOES sound crazy, but I was just happy to be able to put a name to it. Anyone have any experience with what comes next? Am I going to lose my liicense? Rx?
