Hello.

Each time I'm having a headache (it's right sided) I'm having the same feelings from what I get by playing the piano or listening to music, or doing math school works. These are all good feelings, when I have them I feel like I am interpreting something. And the feelings gets more intense as the headache gets more intense, which actually makes me like the headache because it feels like I'm being high (I start seeing things around me with new perspectives and I feel like I appreciate everything around me, but I'm still sane so that is not a problem). All this is good but, I dont have any problem with having these kind of headaches lol, but I was starting to worry if this may be because of epilepsy, or anything I've not known about? Because it have not been like this always, not from what I can recall, just like two months ago it started.

If there is anything more you need to know please ask, thank you for reading :)

  • Bobany- TO me it sounds like a simple partial seizure’s aura. For me, when I have them, I tend to hear some sort of familiar sound, a song I recognize from when I was a little kid, yet a minute later I couldn’t hum the song for the life of me. Yet it is the same one (or I am convinced that it is). I also have the same dream/thoughts come into my head….something I remember and that takes me back instantly to being a young child at night. Maybe that is when it all started…who knows? Then, I feel everything slow down, as though the information isn’t getting to me fast enough for me to process it. If my wife talks to me, nothing she says makes sense, but I nod or say “uh huh” as though I am understanding her. Everything during it seems very peaceful, serene, yet also surreal, as though it is something awesome and majestic, yet I cannot place why it is so, and why I should have those feelings at that moment. I also have started to break out in a pouring sweat, to the point where beads of water are all over my shaved head. IT’s really uncomfortable (after its all over and I think “why am I all wet?). When I am at work, and I feel all this coming on, I always get up and go to the bathroom and sit on the stool, because I feel as though I am going to throw up. I think that I have taught myself to protect myself by doing this. Many who have auras associated with these types of “episodes” will make good use of their auras, and either sit down, pull over, or get to a safe place before they go into the trance-like state. I tend to bob my head up and down a little bit when its happening, when I am on the stool in the bathroom. I don’t know if that’s a coping mechanism, or, if its something that just happens because of it all. The last things that comes, is I feel a strong sense of déjà vu, as if whatever is happening around me, I’ve seen it before, and I feel as though I can tell you what is going to happen right before it happens. For instance, if my wife is there and trying to communicate, or walk toward me, I feel as though I could tell you what she is going to say/do around 4-5 seconds before it actually happens. And it is right every time. Some call this precognition. I call this a really slow mind. J Then, everything becomes very UNFAMILIAR. Nothing around me looks the same as it did, and I feel as though even my wife, daughter and house is something that I should know, but cannot get a grasp as to what relationship I have with them. This was pretty awful, being on the other side of town. I was doing some work at local banks, and suddenly realized that I didn’t know where I was, who I was, or what I was doing out that way. Everything looked familiar, yet, I had no idea why. It was though I was placed in a photograph I had seen on my wall for years, yet, had no idea where that place was, and how to maneuver from where I had been put. I opened up my wallet, saw my name and thought “oh, good. I have a great name”. I then saw where I lived and saw my business cards, along with all my paperwork. I figured out where I worked, finally, and figured I may as well get back to work, wherever that was. It took me 20 minutes or so to find my work which was no more than 5 minutes away. That’s because it really took me 20 minutes after I started driving around to come around to knowing who I was and what I was doing. I remember all of this happening very well. Yet, in the moment, I lost all familiarity memory….all that was familiar was gone. Yet, trained skill sets was still there. For instance, I had no problem with driving. I had no problem with walking, reading the paperwork on my car seat next to me. I did not talk during the time, however. In addition, I turned on the radio, and thinking back on it, I remember a very popular Beyonce or Britney song being on the radio, that I normally would sing along with or know all the words to. I knew that while listening. However, it all sounded new and unfamiliar to me. It’s a very strange, neat, new, and scary feeling,
