I guess this all started for me on my aniversery last year. I was getting out of bed and it was like my body just collapsed under me. I remember shaking violently for about 15 seconds and then the next thing I remember is comming to surrounded by paramedics and realizing that I had expelled my bowels. It took a good 10 minutes before I could respond to a question with anything other than a thumbs up or a head nod. At that time I had recently been diagnosed with diabeties and my doc just thought that the seizure was isolated and related to the massive amounts of avandamet I was on. Then about 3 months ago I had another. This time it was durring the day and I got real sleepy and dizzy right before hand. I layed down and BOOM...violently shaking and then 45 minutes later I'm wondering what is going on. As with the last one I couldn't speak for a minute afterward and this time I experianced what I could only describe as temporary dislexia. Numbers and letters were all mixed up and jumbled. My most recent episode was just a few weeks ago. I was asleep so I have to rely on my wifes testimony for details. But apparently I had 3 seizures over a 6 hour period. I only remember bits and peices of the entire event. When I began to study seizures on the internet I started to realize that what I was experiancing sounds an awful lot like epilepsy. That got me thinking back to my childhood. When I was born I suffered a stroke due to an innept doctor and a pair of forceps. As a child I had visual hallusenations and still have auditory hallusenations all the time. I would also blank out and forget what I was doing at times and I was a bad sleep walker. But after having my latest episode in the middle of the night and not remembering it I think that my sleepwalking may have been partial complex seizues or something. I am seeing a doc about all this and he put me on Depakote, which has contained my seizures but I still feel auras 5 to 6 times a day. He has referred me to a neurologist but I am low income and on medicaide so the earliest I could get an appt. was in june. I just hate the waiting and the not knowing and I know that my wife is tierd of hearing about it.
