So around a year ago I started to develop what they call Aura epilepsy, I would get a deva vu that would get so powerful it would be what seemed the equivalent of having years of memories over flood your brain in a matter of seconds, I would always get a very strange taste in my mouth of which I still don't know what it was but they say that's normal? I would spend the next few hours confused empty feeling and disorientated. Told my neurologist he said they were seizures and put me on Vimpat , within a few weeks of the full dose I noticed my speech in the mornings was all scrambled up it was ok when I was thinking of what I was going to say but it came out all mumbled and backward etc. I took myself off the med's and after talking to my neurologist again I decided I want a new neurologist. But here is where things went really strange and why I am hoping I can get some answers. shortly after I stopped the meds my dreams came back normal ( sorry I forgot to mention the Vimpat stopped my dreams, I dream every night and have since I was a child I am 49 now ) One night i dream i was having a seizure and got the taste in my mouth then realized later I had had an actual seizure in my sleep and was dreaming of it while it was happening I guess my dream, played out what was actually taking place ) I woke up and didn't know where I was I live with my landlady and she is in the room across the hall, I knew there was another person in that room and that she was female but I had NO idea who it was ..I didn't know the layout of the house i was in but I knew who my dog was . this took a few hours to get back to normal, this happens again and was stronger, the other night it happened and I lost my memory of what I had done over the last few days I didn't know where I was or what I had done over the past week ..I then went and sent a text to my ex g/f the only problem was when I did I was still 4 years prior when we had just broken up and I had NO recollection of the last 4 years with her ( we lived as friends in another city all of which I had no memory of ) around 4 hours later things were coming back to me slowly in pieces . that was around 4-5 days ago... Also and ever since this has started i should also mention during the day I get flashes of memories ( i have told my phycologist in an unrelated issue about
these episodes ) the best way I can describe these flashes of memories are ..they are not mine ..I have emotions attached to them but they are memories I have NO clue where or what they are ..but I have emotional feelings with them ..they last around one second and anything can trigger them ..looking at an old house as I'm walking by or hearing a sound ..it is the most bizarre thing and all after I stopped this stupid medication . another reason I hate taking crap that deals with the brain I think they hand it out way to easily and now I believe it's what has done this to me . also my mood has been very down after each episode , depressed and less active.
