I am a new member and on Dec 28th I had a seizure ever since then I have experienced motion sickness, random nausea, dizziness and migraine headaches. I had an EEG this afternoon and right after the light test I felt my left eye twitching followed by my head, arms and legs jerking. The woman who gave me the test asked if I could feel my body jerking. I felt like I did right after my seizure on the 28th, my brain felt scrambled as if someone had violently shook it. Throughout the remainder of my EEG I experienced my body jerking. I should mention that I am also being treated for PTSD. Has anyone experienced this before and is this a normal reaction?
