i was wondering if i could some non-proffesional opinions on if i should get this checked.
i believe that i have some symptoms of TLE. let's see : i get moments of drifting off or spacing out
, hearing things, and sometimes a mild feeling of falling or dizzyness . now these things dont inhibit
me from functioning or anything i have never had a gran mal or seizure that i know of. hada couple of head injuries when iwas younger but...well i guess i am just curious . i only just became aware of TLE. so any info and/or opions on the subject would be very welcome.
p.s. this is also my first time posting anything anywhere so plz be gentle.

There are so many types of seizures other than grand mals.  It is my guess (non-professional) that you are experiencing some type of seizure and that you need to see a neurologist.  While these seem rather mild and non-threatening to you, you don't want to zone out while you are driving.  You may need medication.  I wouldn't put off making an appointment with a neurologist.  We are always here to answer questions and support you.
Take care!

Hi there,
LTE is an option but the symptoms you are presenting could also be as simple as Labarynthitis(sp) (an ear infection). I would still get it checked out though. Just in case
