hey, i’m new here but i’ve been researching and maybe someone can help me.
i’m a 15 y/o female and i have these blackouts. they last for a second or two and then it’s back to normal. my vision will go all black, a flash of white, back to black, and then normal.
the blackouts are triggered most when i am sitting, looking down and using my hands. i have to write notes at school and i’ve found that my blackouts are triggered when i write. one time i was painting my toenails, and a couple happened.
i went to see a neurologist a couple times. i got an eeg and an mri, but they both came back normal. the blackouts started in january 2018, when i went back to school. i was homeschooled for a while. i got glasses on the last day of school, near the end of may. i didn’t have any blackouts during the summer. but once school started again, they were back. i have had migraines before but only due to extreme stress. i got my eyes checked out (i forget the name of the type of doctor) and again everything was normal. the neurologist thought i might be having mini seizures.
i started counting how many blackouts i had during school hours, the highest was 13.
i looked up seizures and stumbled across partial seizures. it’s kinda like what i’m experiencing. i don’t want to self diagnose, i just want to know what’s wrong with me.
if anyone has any ideas or needs more information please contact me! i’m desparate.
