I'm usually in the depression and anxiety forums. I've had a bout of anxiety and depression since February. Been on a med rollercoaster trying to get right again. I'm 43 and female.

No history of epilepsy in myself or family but I stumbled upon simple partial seizures and now I'm concerned. My whole life, off & on, I'll wander off staring. It never bothered me and didn't interfere w/my life. I also remember as a kid staring at picture in my bedroom and being able to "feel" the thickness of the picture with my tongue!!! Weird! Idk if I ever did that as an adult but I clearly remember that as a kid.

That leads me to now. about June of this year, I started having feelings of disconnection. I never noticed an instigator of it, it was just there. Idk if it was disconnect or depersonalization. I told my therapist and psychiatrist about it. They associated it with depression/anxiety.

Lately it's been better but the past few times, I've noticed something sets it off- a sight, a sound and it's like déjà vu. I don't have any physical symptoms, never have except the feeling of disconnect/Depersonalization after that lasts the rest of the day or a cpl of days. When I'm busy, I don't notice it as much.

I'm also prone to hypochondria and anxiety so I guess I'm asking if anyone has any idea if this is anxiety or simple partial seizures??!

I will talk to the doctor about this. I came upon simple partial seizures after googling déjà vu. I regret that Google search now LOL.

Thanks for any advice!
