It’s nearly Christmas and trust my health to go from being ok again to being absolutely fucked in the space of minutes.
I started having seizures again last night, they were pretty bad but I took a benzo the doctor prescribed last time and just went to sleep. Once i’d woken in the morning they started pretty swiftly and carried on for an hour or so. Max was so kind and stayed off work to look after me, and as he was cleaning the kitchen I went for a lay down on the couch and after about 20 minutes my whole body started to go numb, and I lost all ability to speak. I kept trying to call Max but nothing was coming out, I tried to roll of the couch but couldn’t psychically move, after a while of trying to move and speak I started seeing all of the objects around me morph into different things and my brain started thinking there was a dog next to me (we don’t even own a dog), along with hearing people speaking and chanting around me. I would say this lasted about an hour before I managed to drag myself up when Max brought my a cup of tea but I couldn’t feel my face and my whole body had still lost the majority of it’s strength to hold things or move. My whole coordination was off and I was really, really disorientated.
After all of this I seemed to go relatively back to normal, with only my body feeling weak, shaky and unbalanced. Once i’d got on my feet to go get a drink I had the weirdest but most excruciating pain shoot through the right side of my head to the point I fell on the floor until It stopped (it didn’t last too long)
I have no idea what to think, I feel OK now.. not great by any means but just a bit unwell and weak. My neck and head kind of aches and I feel really spaced out and woozy..
Does anyone by any chance have an idea of what this could be and If I should be concerned (which I really am anyway).. My boyfriend thought it might have been a mini stroke as i’m epileptic anyway and apparently it’s possible to have a stroke from fits. Obviously it wouldn’t of been a full blown stroke but apparently there’s something called a TIA stroke which is like a mini stroke and warning for a worse one that could occur?!
