About 2 months ago I started having blackouts/petit mal seizures. I'm not quite sure what they were, but no one in any of my classes noticed anything, which is weird. I had an EKG done for syncope and blood drawn at the first sign, but nothing was wrong. I later had an EEG, CT scan and MRI of my brain and nothing came up. I am at a loss and feel like I am going crazy. I just black out and am not their. I can't really understand if I am doing anything while I black out or if I just sit there. I know my eyes are open though. I eat healthy as I was diagnosed with diabetes and couple months ago, but my blood is always normal. With the blackouts I had severe memory loss. I forgot names of people I knew, dates, and how to get around campus which really frightened me. A few weeks later, I started to get dizzy and week at certain moments, then a few days ago I started getting extremely nauseous and smelling familiar things that remind me of when I was little and my head would get week and dizzy. Sometimes it would just lead to about 20 seconds to a couple of minutes of dizziness or complete blackouts. My last symptom which I have had this whole time is radiating and throbbing headaches. If anyone had any idea what this could be, let me know. I feel like I am crazy, but I know I am not imagining this. Thank You!
