Thank you for reading this. I’ll try to be brief and to the point.
The wife related the following actions that I have displayed, three or four times, over the past few months. The last time finally got my attention.
I could be standing or walking when, I enter into what best can be described as a state of disassociation. I get, and this is the way she describes it, a look as if I’m “drunk”. Speech slows down, eyes do stay open and I do however, for the most part, respond to her questions and statements. I remain standing and have never fallen or become unconscious. There are no “tics” such as with the eyes or lip smacking or muscle twitching. There are no symptoms related to a seizure, just this euphoric state of mind.
These “events” only last for a few minutes at a time, after which I return. During each I have no recollection of the event. I remember what happened prior to the “event” and immediately after.
I have been to see a neurologist and the CAT scan was normal. The EEG was normal and the, as I like to refer them, field sobriety tests were normal. He could offer no explanation for the “events” but, nonetheless, put me on Keppra. I can still remember him stating the following when questioned as to why he felt as though I had suffered a seizure and I quote, “if it walks like a Duck and quacks like a Duck, it must be a Duck”.
My GP after reviewing the test took me off the Keppra as she felt it was not needed. She too felt it was not seizure activity but, could offer no reason for them happening.
Has anyone experienced this or can anyone offer any ideas as to what these may be?
