Hi there! A bit of history to begin with. I'm a 19 year old female. I'm very asthmatic and hypothyridic. I have lost consiousness twice, once due a fall, landing on the back of my head; the second time, due a blow to the forehead by a hammer in a job accident.
And now on to my problems.
About two years ago I began experiences odd spells I couldn't explain. These spells seem to be triggered by a word or a combination of words, I have no idea what these words are. I then experience what can only be explained as deja vu. I always go through the same train of thought and always recognise it, though right now, while not experiencing a spell, I do not know what that train of thought is. I perceive my surroundings as part of this deja vu... example, if I'm watching tv, the person or voice on the tv is saying what I'm thinking. If my father is on the phone, he seems to be saying what I'm thinking. I am aware of it while it is happening. I also seem to have an odd, bitter taste that lingers in the back of my throat during these spells.
Now, I don't fall or collapse. If I'm standing, I will stay standing up. If I'm holding something, I don't drop it. (this happened at work while bringing food to a table, I had a spell and did not put the hot plates down. Five minutes later once the spell was done, I realised my arms were burning, ended up with 2nd degree burns) Though, people around me have said I look dead. My eyes don't focus on anything, I have no expression in my face, and I'm not responsive to anything around me as I'm completely consumed by what's going on in my head.
I was reffered to a neurologist. He is unsure as to what this could be but thinks seizures are the most logical answer. I have had two EEG's, one sleep deprived, one not. Both have come back normal. My MRI also came back normal. I have lost my driver's licence due to this and am really beggining to get frustrated by this. It is also quite scary to me that I'm having these things that even the doctors can't seem to explain. I would just like an answer or an idea.
If anyone could think of anything that this may be, or if anyone is experiencing the same thing, I'd LOVE a response. Thanks!!:confused: :confused:
