Oh Healing!!! I'm so very sorry that you have joined this "club"! I have experienced them, although I was not in treatment at the time and so I can't really explain what may be going on. I do know how scary it is though!!!
I have also experienced the feeling just before the seizures I had, where I could feel my eyes roll to the back of my head, and the loss of understanding of where I was and being able to control what was going on with my body. What you are describing was different for me - very scary still though!
Yes, at least in some states, if you are having seizures the doctors are required to report it and you could loose your driving privileges for a period of time until you become seizure free once again. Here is a link that will help to discover what you may need to do:www.epilepsyfoundation.org/resources/Driving-Laws-by-State.cfm
And honestly, I understand why they would take our driving privileges, no one really wants to have a seizure while driving and cause an accident where someone was seriously hurt or worse. Even if it does cause an inconvenience to us.
I'm not sure if it can really be pinpointed on one infection - I believe (an opinion only!) that it's due to a serious neurological dysfunction in the body caused by these infections - usually when the person has several tick-borne infections, or is in the acute phase but is very, very seriously ill. Of course I am excluding all the other "typical" reasons a person might be having a seizure - high fever and others.
And here's the real issue - as much as you may want to be avoiding not being able to drive, until you go to a doc and explain what's going on and get thoroughly checked out, you don't know just how serious this is, or what is really causing this to happen!! We want you to be safe and get checked out if it continues to happen!!!
