This is how what I feel starts: I always know its going to happen and I have time to sit down because it feels like my heart rate slows and I'm lightheaded. Then I feel like all of my energy is suddenly drained. This only lasts for a few seconds to a minute. I am alert and responsive. I can move if I have to but for that minute I am extremely weak. After that I am fine though very tired, this lasts the rest of the day. Sometimes I am nauseous and have tingling in my fingers. Sometimes I will get a headache immediately or later that day. But I always end up with a headache. I do get migraines but I don't know if that is what this is. I recently had an EEG and it was abnormal. My doctor says this is a seizure but I don't think it is. Has anyone else experienced this?

Sounds more migraine than seizure, but I'm no professional. You didn't mention any visual issues. That is generally what an 'aura' migraine refers to.

Yes I always have vision changes. Sometimes its tunnel vision and sometimes things get dim (like putting on sunglasses).

I also get the "thing getting dim" for a split second. Yeah it's like putting on sunglasses but it happens in an instant and goes back to normal.

I get the same thing happening to me. It's very scary, but it comes over me so intense that I am confused and disoriented and can hear what people are saying to me... but can't really respond just yet. My neuro said he thinks they could have been mini seizures. I'm getting an EEG next week. My MRI was normal though! My probs. starting occurring fall of 2011. With this new symptom in the past month?
