My husband is 70 years old and has been healthy all his life but has some strange episodes of what I would call catatonic states. He will seat rigidly with his eyes open, but not blinking, he cannot speak but can hear, he cannot move his body. This will last anywhere from a few seconds to a couple of minutes. This started about 2 years ago. At first the episodes would happen every couple of months, but lately it happens a few times a week, at various times of the day. My husband says that he feels like he is going far away and like everything is stopping, and he can’t help it, but he is conscious even though he can’t move nor talk. He saw a neurologist twice, his head was X-rayed, had a MRI done on it as well and everything came back normal. What could this be? I am so afraid it could happen while he drives. Let me know if you have ever heard of these type of spells.:confused:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
