I don't even know where to really begin, here is the basics. In Dec. 2005 I was in the bathroom with a stomache bug. I began to feel overheated,tingling and numbness,light headed, Sweat terribly, and feel like I was going to throw up. I almost didn't get my sweater off before I passed out. I remember hearing (not feeling or seeing) my head repeatedly hitting the wall in a corner of my bathroom. When I was finally able to get off the floor. I had to call my fiance to help me to the bedroom which was across the hall. He put me in bed and later that night I tried to get up again and the same happened except I made it to the couch before I hit my head again. I don't remember the episode at all on 1/30/06, my fiance said he found me sitting indian style passed out with my head on the sidewalk. He says I may have been there for up to 20 mins. He said when he tried to get me up I continued to babble and make no sense for about 10 mins. I don't remember any of that. I do remember feeling so scared and confused. Like I was asleep and suddenly I totally lost where I was and how I had got there. Both times I hit the right side of my head. above my eyebrow the time in Dec and my Temple and Ear area in Jan. When the dr asked if anything like this had ever happend b4. I remembered that when my Great-Granmother was dying, the family was gathered at the nursing home and then I remember my sister standing over me. She was yelling are u ok? I told her get off me. I was panicked trying to understand what happened. After that I drank juice and ate crackers. I started feeling sick to my stomache and tried to make it in the bathroom to throw up. My hand wouldn't let go of the handle and my arm began to jerk and then I remember sliding down the door as everything went black. I never got that checked out because I thought it was due to stress from loosing my G-Grandmother, we were close. I also had a car accident at 16 and the left side of my head went thru the side window on my left side. I had three layers of stitches, 48 in my temple area and a little into my hairline. they also said they found Incomplete RBBB. but the cardiologist says that is normal for my age (28) and that he doesn't think it's my heart but will do the tests anyway since i have alot of chest pain and palipitations. My MRI had a small spot on it that they didn't feel was clinically signifigant and my EEG showed nothing, though during the fast breathing, I felt almost identical to what I felt in Dec. also I am forgetting conversations I have had with people, and this sounds SO stupid but I looked back at my son's agenda and I even forgot how to sign my name since Jan. I am forgetting a letter. I don't know what to do or who to see, no one seems to have any answers. The Cardiologist says after he completes the testing he will send me to Neurologist. He said from the moment he met me that he thinks it's seizures. I had a 29 wk old preemie a lil over 3 years ago and she had seizures too, so they seem oddly familiar and I use to know before she would have hers sounds weird huh?I have also been having my left hand draw up whenever it wants like someone else has control over it, and my fingers on left hand begin to twitch around alot, left eye twitches alot, and left side of neck. What is going on and what should I do? Any suggestions? Have any of u experienced anything like this? Thank U for listening.

just wanted to give everyone an update. I had an echo done on Wed as well as a Holter monitor. Though I haven't received the results back, my pcp has finally given my a referal to a neurologist. I have been talking with several people online that have epilepsy and they have all been very patient with me and very inspiring. I have realized that this has been an ongoing problem for many years. I thank u for all your concern and well wishes. I will continue to keep u updated and in the loop. One more ? w/my referal my Pcp gave me a copy of the EEG and MRI the eeg said it was normal. The MRI showed "a single punctate focus of T2 signal hyperintensity involving the deep white matter in the right frontal parietal region," what is this about? Also could this be why I am having twitching, and drawing up on my left side? I had my car accident at 16 on my left side, however everytime I have "had an episode" I have hit the right side of my head, could both sides be affected or what? I know i know, The neuro will have all the answers but it's nearly 6 wks with no real answers. For those who have asked and suggested it, I am keeping a daily journal, I forget so many things a day now, I have to so I won't lose me all together...lol Thank all of u as always for the continued prayers and support. yeah
We are all Far From home!
