I'm new here and newly diagnosed as Temporal Lobe Epileptic.
I've had one Tonic Clonic and one Simple Partial Seizure so far.
I'm wondering what your experiences are with prodrome symptoms and auras?
For a few days before my tonic clonic I had more incidences of deja vu, felt on edge and agitated, felt like my brain was a little speeded up, slept a lot more, thought there was a strange smell coming from my body... Then on the day of the tonic clonic I had massive incidences of deja vu, felt very irritable and agitated. The minutes before the seizure I felt euphoric and had bright white lights blurring my vision, I felt as though I was walking on air.
I didn't feel any different in the days preceding the simple partial. Although just before it happened I got the same feeling of intense deja vu, all regular geometric patterns were making my brain "shake", time seemed to slow down and everything around me was blurry except if I focussed on it.
I'm highly interested to hear your experiences of this....
