I haven't had a neurologist for a while because of non being able to afford one and because I can't drive and there are none in my city.
When I could I was told that I have epileptic seizures and pseudo-seizures. I know how my NES seizures were, and I don't have that kind anymore.
I also had one doctor say that the ones I stayed conscious for were NES (non-epileptic seizures) but the ones I lost consciousness were epileptic.
My doctor now is a family doctor. He says they are pseudo seizures, which if I'm right is the same as NES. And everything I read online says NES seizures are panic attacks.
I don't have panic attacks. I know my body and how I react to depression and emotional problems and this is not it.
Can you have an abnormal EEG and have NES? I think so because some people have both NES and epileptic seizures. I used to but haven't had NES for many years, over 13 years. And the NES only happened when I wasn't depressed.
How do I convince him that I would know if I had an NES. I don't care that NES can duplicate any type of epileptic ones and the ones that were NES looked like a different kind. More like Jacksonian seizures that were only in usually one arm but occasionally both. These are epileptic seizures.
I'll accept that I used to have both types and that there were a lot of NES in one period of my life but I never had a time where all were NES, only both. I know my body and what I have. These aren't panic attacks or NES.
He's never seen one. He knows through my leaving messages on his medical assistant's machine, that I can feel my body when I come out of it and feel like I am coming forward, so am guessing I go back in the seizures (more like myoclonic in a way) and that I have fallen at times.
I'm angry now. He can believe what he wants. He knows I have an abnormal EEG with both sides being abnormal.
