My name is melody and I am new to this website. My son is 7 and is very healthy and always has been. I just recently started this roller coaster of finding out wether my son is epileptic. We are now getting a second EEG. He is not diagosed as of yet. He has what I would call "sensory seizures" if that is what it is. He usually wakes with these epsodes but he has been awake when one has started too. he wakes with this intense anxiety and feels like everything is far away, everything is too loud, he doesnt like to be touched, he has also complained of feelinglike he is moving or floating away, and most recently one of his hands was very hot even though it was cool to the touch. He is not himself during these times and it usually lasts about 15min to 30 at the most. He cant seem to comfort himself. He is definatly aware and upset. I am very worried! Is there anyone out there with these experiences? email@example.com
