About two years ago my brain started to get a "sick" feeling. Kind of like your brain feels when you wake up with a hang over. It never let's up except when I sleep and right after I take my medicene. I take lorazipam, Lamotrigine and zonisamide. I have jerking motions mostly when I am completely relaxed as when I am falling asleep. I often have trouble remembering words and processing information such as how much change to give back after breaking a five dollar bill. I find it nearly impossible to double task such as driving a car. I often felt as though I was going to have a seizure. Several times my face has felt as if I had a stroke but only slightly drooping where it was not noticable to anyone but me. I did have one very mild seizure. I was diagnosd by my Doctor as having medial temporal Sclerosis as they found some minor disturbances on my EEG and the radioligist found a dark area on the left temporial lobe. I was sent to a Doctor who specialized in this condition who admitted me to the hospital for evaluation for brain surgery. I had two large seizures the very first night. I have never had these kind of seizures nor have I had any since. They were negitive on the EEG. I think that was because they were caused by withdrawal from Lorazipam (Activan) not by my condition. I had a period of Todd's paralysis following each seizure. The specialist diagnosed me as having psuedo seizures and now both docs are not really treating me. I feel I got the diagnosis because they could not figure out what was wrong with me and felt it a waste of time.I am still sick and not sure where to turn or what to do. Mean while I am unable to work and am slowly losing everything I have worked so hard to get. I have had a CAT, several MRI, a couple of EEG's, but I have never had a spinal tap. Any suggestions that anyone could give me?
