This is my first time on this site and am very glad to have found it. I have just been clinically diagnosed with "Jacksonian Seizures". I have many sypmtoms, which have changed over time. Maybe someone can tell me more also, but here is what happend the first time. My head whirled, left hand dropped from steering wheel, hand clenched and felt pulling and crawling feeling go up to my elbow. Left shoulder shook as did the rest of my left side. My eyes seemed to have crossed for a moment. Felt really lightheaded and when walking, felt like my feet weren't touching the ground.
Since the first attack, my symptoms have gotten much worse and doctors are having a hard time with it. I will have the numbness start at the top of the left side of my head and march down the whole left side of my body. My left side will get heavy feeling and my functions like speaking, eyes blinking, and movements will slow down to almost a stop. I will go into somewhat of a trace and stare in space. left side of face will droop. I can see and hear, but can only mumble a response. My eyes will glaze over. Will have tingly sensations on left side etc.. Sorry this is so long. This has progessed even futher to my right side. I am very confused also. My eyes will now roll into my head.
I have had as many as 18 per day some lasting as long as ten minutes or so. Get very tired afterwards for a couple of hours.
All my tests came back negative, but I'm taking Tegretol, and Gabapentin. Seems to be helping somewhat.
