Can't shake feeling after seizure

User Profile
I've had seizures since I was two. I'm now in my 40s . My last for seizures have been different. And, last week I had a seizure and I still feel weird. I feel like my personality has been hijacked. I can't seem to shake this feeling and my smell n taste have been off since. I feel like I'm going crazy.any reason for this? I've never had this.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. These are common post dromal symptoms of post epileptic attack. You need compliant use of seizure medications and thorough work up for neurological sign or update.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
