I had a simple partial seizure a couple of weeks ago on the transition from wakefulness to sleep. It started with an agonizing full feeling in my head, progressed to abnormal sensory experiences and abnormal visual thought imagery and then resolved within a minute or two but left me really out of it.
The ER doc ruled out obvious tumors with the CT scan, but I was so out of it that I got dressed and walked out without going over the discharge instructions with the nurse. I also thought it was a good idea to make a 7-mile walk home at 2:00 a.m. after leaving the hospital. I walked 2 miles before spotting a cab at a gas station. The nice cab driver wanted to know all about my ails on the 5-mile drive home and wished me well. I figured it was more fun listening to my EDS adventures than driving drunk people around!
I have not been having normal brain activity during the transition from wakefulness to sleep for quite some time now. Hope to get to the bottom of it with the upcoming EEG and MRI.
