Hi there,

Thought I would ask the brains trust what you think about my situation. I have had lots of stress the last couple of years and moreso in the last couple of months, with a separation from my husband and some work overload and work issues. One Friday about a month ago I had a vague headache and I woke to my headache worsening. I stayed home and experienced what I see is commonly referred to as Dejavu followed closely by a very warm sensation up my back and some nausea. All up it only lasted a minute. This happened about 10 times within six hours. I was really washed out at the end of the day. For the month after I have felt like my brain has had cotton wool stuffed in it, but finally I am okay now too. I've had a CT and EEG and both have come back clear. My neurologist (who I see anyway for dystonia), says it isn't seizures but probably a stress reaction. I haven't had another attack, but he has given me a form to have an MRI if I do. Can anyone tell me if what I described is something they have experienced with Simple Partial Seizures? Any help is appreciated Thanks. Sweetie blush

Hi Sweetie,

I don't have simple partials myself but would recommend this resource:

Not sure about the warm back feeling but deja vu and upset stomach sound like temporal lobe epilepsy.

Thanks to those who replied. I haven't has another intense episode but continue to have regular dejavu and headaches. Think the neurologist thinks it might be related to migraines. MRI today, so maybe some clarity.
