Hiya, im new to the website.
Im 16 years old, when i was 12, i suffered from migraines. Then at christmas (this year) i started fainting when i recieved them. It would only last for a couple of minutes, then i would feel a little better. But when that stopped i started having absences/blackouts. To me it seems like i blink and every thing/one had moved. But, so i have been told, i have been moving, talking, doing stuff but my memory blanks it out. 
I went to see a neurologist and had many tests done; an E.E.G., MRI scan and blood tests. I have now been diagnosed with generalised epilepsy. I have been taking my medication for it and its had different results.
But recently ive been having dreams. Well, when i say dreams, i mean mind splitting, brain crunching, images. Any day ive had a blackout, later that night when i go to sleep, ive been having these images. From what i can remember, they are images from that day. They play in reverse and always hurt. They are images i remember from the day but don't remember that specific event.
If any one on this site feels the same, please reply. I need to know if its only me.

I am familiar with these images that you have described, I wish I could offer up some insight as to what is the cause but all I can say is that I began having Grand Mal seizures when I was 12 and I have had these same visions that you are describing, that is to say that they are very crisp, detailed, rigid, flashes of images that can be disturbing to say least. There is no ryhme or reason for them appearing its just that when people tell me about there "dreams" and I talk about mine it usually winds up with them looking at me with there mouths hanging open in awe. I have had these for 24years now and I would like to tell you not to "freak" on them...I know these images can make me feel out of sorts sometimes for they are so breathtakingly real but I cant find anyone that can answer why this happens and trust me I have looked far and wide.

its a big help to know that i am not the only person having this happen.
What you described is what has been happening.
Its good to know that i can have a normal life with this happening.
Thank you.
