Can it come back after 10 years?!

hi all,
i would like to share my story with you maybe I'll find some matches to mine.
i was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 8 years old and started medication until the age of 18.
now I'm 28 years old and for several months i have been feeling some symptoms like the following:
-temporarily confusion for like 10 seconds where i don't understand what it's going on it's like a dizziness(not vertigo) with the feeling of "what the hell is going on"?
-sudden quick failure of my knees while walking
-brain zaps from time to time that last for less than a minute
- i wake up in the morning and i find myself sleeping on the couch in the living room knowing that i slept in my bed, so I'm changing locations without even feeling it
-last and most annoying thing: today i woke up with tongue pain i noticed that while sleeping i bit it very badly it's all red and purple but i didn't even feel it .
tomorrow I'm going to see my specialist because i think it's coming back he did not give much importance to all the above except the tongue bite he told me it's urgent to see you i think it's related to epilepsy attack or seizure.
any opinions?

Many times with my tonic

Many times with my tonic-clonic seizures, I bite my tongue. One day I woke up and I noticed that I had bit my tongue and had red dots around my eyes as well as my pillow was soaked. After seeing that, I knew that I had a tonic-clonic seizure that morning in the bed. There is a type of epilepsy that focuses on just seizures that occur at night while sleeping.
