Hello all,
I am wondering if any of you have had this experience with your simple partials.  Does anyone ever have a seizure when some part of your body, say your hands or fingers, feel extremely large?  I've had many of these and my neuro has told me that this is called macropsia.  I've looked this term up but all I can find references vision appearing larger than things really are, not things feeling larger than they really are.  Has anyone heard of this of this or have experience with this?  I'd love to hear your stories as so far I'm the only person I know with this little oddity!! tongue
Thanks! :-)

I have heard of it but only in the context of vision. -opia and -opsia are suffix which mean the condition applys to the visual tract. (Such as Hemianopia, myopsia etc...) I have never heard it being used for feeling and perception before though
