Im 24 years old and this strange thing has been happening since i was about 17. I call it deja vu because when its happening i start thinking of random things that happened in the past. I have a wonderful family and had a great childhood so its nothing involving that, ill just think of random fun things i did when i was little or even things i did last month. I just can never remember what exactly i was think about after these episodes are over. Now, to describe these episodes: they happen for three days in a row every two months or so. They happen every hour or two and only last for about a minute each time. Ill know its coming because i start to feel tingly and a little disconnected. Thats when i run to the bathroom because i know the awful taste in my mouth is coming. I have to spit constantly the whole time this is happening. I get dizzy and confused to the point where i cant even read words on the bottles sitting on my sink. Then my body gets tingly and very warm. Then just like that its gone... Afterwards i feel exhausted for about ten minutes. I dont know whats going on! I never went to the dr except when i was pregnant and he didnt really help me because he said no tests could be done during pregnancy. I finally have insurance again so im going to set up an appt soon, im just curious if this sounds familiar to anyone because it started going on again yesterday?

  • Check out this thread, its about the same thing.

    I found this thread because I have the same experience you do. The information on the internet really frightened me. To summarize, the internet says that these are "petit mal siezures" (deja vu is a primary symptom), caused by Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, caused by anything from Brain Tumor to Vitamin Deficiency.

  • Before you try anything major like dangerous seizure medication or debilitating brain surgery, try taking Vitamin B12. I found out about that from a thread on this website, and worked! My "petit mal seizures" causing my strange Deja Vu symptoms disappeared after taking just two pills of Vitamin B12 (2500mcg), 1 day apart each. The B12 will last in your body for up to 3 years, so I only have to take just a couple thousand mcg of B12 once every 3 years. Its certainly worth a try, it can't hurt.
