Is it possible that I have this? The symptoms of temporal lobe epilepsy mimic those of depersonalization, which I thought I had but the feelings of unreality occur very suddenly. Ive had a ct scan and bloodwork. Would it show up on this???

Thanks

I think your scan would have shown anything abnormal. I had an mri scan rather than a ct scan I was told the mri would show up everything. Thankfully all was ok. I think if you have been experiencing unexplainable tastes or smells that is a symptom of temporal lobe epilepsy.

If in doubt go back to your doctor and make sure.

Good luck

Thanks, while I am actually awaiting an mri scan of the head and my physician said its not even needed, and he is 100% sure that I have anxiety and nothing else. He is very good, he's giving me an mri to put my mind at rest, which I know doesn't happen very often because of the money.

Thanks for the reply,

james
