I was reading on epilepsy.com about different types of seizures. One type is Simple Partial Seizures, sub-category: Sensory Seizures:
“These cause changes in any one of the senses. People with sensory seizures may smell or taste things that aren’t there; hear clicking, ringing, or a person’s voice when there is no actual sound; or feel a sensation of “pins and needles” or numbness. Seizures may even be painful for some patients. They may feel as if they are floating or spinning in space. They may have visual hallucinations, seeing things that aren’t there (a spot of light, a scene with people). They also may experience illusions – distortions of true sensations. For instance, they may believe that a parked car is moving farther away or t hat a person’s voice is muffled when it’s actually clear.”
So now I guess I have a form of epilepsy. That or I’m just plain crazy AND a hypochondriac.
We're headed to the casino this morning. Wish us luck!
