Seeking help and trying to figure out what's going on


Hi everyone, I'm 19 years old and my name is Katerina. My symptoms are confusion, talking like a baby, acting like a baby, crawling, wanting and needing to hit and fix things, needing to pick, I lose all sight for a few seconds, headaches(major ones) sparks I call them which are I would probably say like an electric shock in the front of my head and the left side of my head tingles. Then I have an uncomfortable feeling in my mouth and throat kind of like a choking feeling. I know it's a lot and I'm sorry. Can anyone relate? Does anyone know?
