i'm 39 , have had epilepsy since 12. i've been seizure free for almost 15 years. kinda
feel like i shouldn't waste anyone's time by making an entry here since i haven't had one in a long time. some things on here i recall. getting auras , strange sounds , getting nervous while being out of your "comfort zone. i remember those feelings, and still get them from time to time.
i do have a question,for anyone....
has anyone had anxiety attacks that are similar to the feeling you'd get before a seizure? kinda like you'd have an aura but no seizure to follow. has happened to me alot.
anyway ,stay on your meds, keep your dr. appointments and be safe

Hi there,

I have not suffered from anxiety attacks, but I would imagine that the feeling you would get just prior to an attack would be similar to an epileptic aura. Posting in the Anxiety & Panic forums would probably be the best place to get an answer to see if there are any epileptics over there.
