Im a 34 y/o female. On the 10th of may something strange happened to me. I was lying in bed and all of a sudden i felt strange. I got out of bed and I had this staggering walk..and my speech was either absent or slurred. I was at home of course...but my surroundings seemed unfamiliar. I was taken to the ER and all the lab work and CT came back normal. i was given medication for the jerking and sent home. Later that week I was hospitalized because I continued to have episodes of slurred speech...weakness in my legs. I had an MRI and it was normal. As of today, i continue to have these symptoms along woth other unexplained symptoms. They include...feeling like I'm floating at times, slurred speesch or unable to speak, shaking of hand or foot or both,strange smell (like something is burning), a chill sensation on the skin, a sudden overwhelmed feeling. Those are all I can point out at this time. Besides the fact that when these attacks are over, I'm really really tired..and have pain or weakness in my legs. Could this be some type of seizure?
Hi, my son has had epilepsy since he was 4 years old, just absence siezures; he is now 11. However he sometimes has episodes exactly as you have described, and the doctors cannot explain what it is. Even his neurologist has never heard of it before. He even described the burning smell and said that he can't seem to recognise anyone. He also said that afterwards he feels very tired, his arms feel wierd and parts of his body feel numb. I wish I could help you more, I know it must be scary, I'm still trying to find an answer myself. Please let us know if you come up with anything?
