Understandable paranoia or...?

<p>Hi, my name is Cameron. I'm 32 and have been having seizures for a very long while, since I was a kid. Apparently I hit my head early on. I was energetic.</p>

<p>Anyway, I have this weird thing that happens, and I haven't been able to find any reference to it anywhere. I can only describe it as a mild panic attack. I have an aura for my seizures,&nbsp;which basically manifests with a numbness in my face and twitching. So, what I've had happening is that every now and again, possibly twice a day, I'll think I'm feeling my aura coming on for the briefest of moments, but I immediately go into panic mode. I'll involuntarily hold my breath, stop whatever I'm doing and just try to feel if it is a real one or some understandably paranoid delusion that I -might- be having one. It then takes a bit of time&nbsp;to get over that panicked feeling.</p>

<p>As if seizures aren't bad enough, this mild whatever-it-is is stressing me out, which also can't be good for the underlying problem. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what do you do about it besides endure?</p>

<p>- Cameron</p>
