I was told, years ago, this is either petit mal epilepsy, or hypoglycemia by a doctor. I want to May Clinic about this, but couldn't produce an "episode" while hooked up to the machines. The more research I do though, neither of these sound like what happens to me. I'll do my best to describe it.
Usually a visual cue, certain objects ( always the same things, even in different places) will cause an episode. I feel, what feels like to me to be, a surge in blood pressure, difficulty in speech and thought, pressure in my head, foggy headedness( is the best way to describe it). The epidode itself lasts 5-15 seconds, but afterward I am wiped out. I mean BEAT. Groggy, tired, difficult to breathe, little desire to breathe ( the breathing symptoms feel like a general pain releiver like morphine) I can feel myself space out, and I can talk during, and maintain function, but it's difficult.
What the heck is this!? I noticed when I was taking Omega fish oil pills, the frequency decreased dramatically. The fact that they are generally brought on by visual cues makes me think psychological, but fish oil pills seemed to help makes me wonder.
