after reading this site i believe i have epilepsy but am being treated with antipsychotics. olanzapine. they've helped but not cured. i feel the same, and had some experiences with migraines - i had the flashing lights and tunnel vision, headaches and a feeling of unreality that was so powerful. yet i knew what was going on at the same time and did not lose consciousness. i feel like i'm in a dream state on a day to day basis and the antipsychotics only have got me to a plateau. do epilepsy drugs take you out of this altered state of awareness and back into reality? i'm seeing my psychiatrist on monday and would love some input. i've had an e.e.g that came back abnormal, but was not abnormal for someone who is on medication. slow wave or something. what does slow wave mean, and would someone who had epilepsy have slow wave? i've had fits in my sleep where my brain goes so fast, just when i'm dropping off, and my thoughts are constantly 100mph, from the moment i wake up til the moment i go to sleep. this makes me so depressed, when in reality i'm normally a very happy person. i just want this sorted out.
