Sorry to hear you are having different or new symptoms.  The best bet is always to get a proper medical opinion but here is some info on Simple Partial Seizures: 

Sensory seizures:
These cause changes in any one of the senses. People with sensory seizures may smell or taste things that aren't there; hear clicking, ringing, or a person's voice when there is no actual sound; or feel a sensation of "pins and needles" or numbness. Seizures may even be painful for some patients. They may feel as if they are floating or spinning in space. They may have visual hallucinations, seeing things that aren't there (a spot of light, a scene with people). They also may experience illusions—distortions of true sensations. For instance, they may believe that a parked car is moving farther away, or that a person's voice is muffled when it's actually clear.  Numbness can be a symptom of other seizure conditions, it could also be an indication of another medical condition, with good medical care I hope you are feeling well very soon.  Take care and God bless.
