I have been experiencing very very scary and weird episodes that have to do with my brain for many many years.
They started when I was a teenager about 15 years old and I am 32 now.
I cango episode free for years at a time but I never know when I'm going to have another one.
What I am meaning is my brain suddenly speeds up and everything around me feels like it's going 1000 miles an hour when its really not.
Like I can be walking or doing whatever it is I'm doing, typing, doing dishes etc at a normal everyday pace but to my brain it feels like its going much much faster.
These episodes last anywhere from 5-15 minutes at the most.
I have them sometimes when its very quiet at night and I'm lying in bed trying to go to sleep and then one hits me and like I say, everything speeds up.
I am scared. I don't know if its a seizure or if the next one is going to be the end of me.
I remember them starting as a teenager and I used to ask my mom does it sound like I'm talking fast to you. She would always say no and back then they weren't too severe or I didn't think anything of it and it would pass if a few minutes but as I've gotten older it seems when they come back they are a little worse that it was before. The last one I had was about 9 months ago but before that I was episode free for years and I thought then finally I had "outgrown" them and whatever it was it was gone for good.
Well these last ones I had, I had like 3 within 2 months.
They started back in the day after I had an endoscopy/colonoscopy and was put under versed anesthesia.
I wonder if the anesthesia triggered something in my brain that they came back but maybe not, I don't know.
My family doctor said something about it could possibly be a pinched nerve deep in my inner ear.
I am scared and sick of this and I don't want to die from it. I just want a doctor to see me and understand completely what it is I'm saying and say this is what you have. Any explanation or diagnosis on what this is, thats all I want.
I am scared because if the versed anesthesia that I had caused this what if I have to have a major surgery and go under general anesthesia and doctors don't know about this undiagnosed disease I have?
Does anyone understand me? Please is there anyone else out there, I feel so alone.
