I have a vlog on youtube and I was filming an episode today. When I went back through the footage to post it, I noticed there was about 5 seconds where I stopped talking and did weird things with my hands, but then it stopped and I went right back to talking. I don't remember this AT ALL.

I did some research and saw petit mal seizures look similar to "zoning out"

I had a brain trauma last year, if that is relevant. It wasn't horribly bad and I never had any seizures or anything like that.

I'm really worried. Please tell me what you think it is!

I have only just seen this post, I'm no expert at all but I also had a brain trauma last year, a severe concussion.

Several months later I started "missing time", I could be walking along and it felt as though I suddenly woke up, realized I'd walked a block and do not remember doing it, it can happen while I'm on the phone, anywhere.

My husband will say I'll suddenly stop talking, I have no recollection of going in to it or any memory of where my mind has been, it's always on the other end of it.

Had to go to the ER after having what they thought were 2 large seizures.

My short term memory is completely shot.

I'd definitely talk to a Dr about what happened, good luck.
