This query stems from my effort to separate out indications of seizure activity from indications of drug side effects. The following example is from December/early January. There are many more examples like this one. …[I am] at the computer in my office believing that I was at the table in the livingroom. I slowly looked up from the computer and noticed I was not where I thought I was. I had forgotten [blanked out] that I had moved to the office. Within the next hour it happened again Another probably related example is as follows: I am in my home neighborhood [of 45 years] having tea at a tea house before a haircut appointment. I look out the window of the teahouse expecting to see the hair salon across the street and straight ahead. But it was not there. After many minutes and much anxiety I came to realize that the salon was actually to the right of my line of vision. It was where it had always been. What do you think? And many thanks,XXXX

Brief Answer: Please find detailed answer below Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Thanks for writing in to HCM. Having read through your query in detail I find there are a few possibilities which need further detailed investigation. 1. You might be having underlying anxiety which is leading to such thoughts. 2. There can be dissociative state in your mind. However if your memory is intact through the period, this is less likely to have happened. 3. A partial seizure may also have the features as described by you. 4. It is also possible that you are normal and without any abnormality. It is suggested that you consult a psychiatrist and get an EEG investigation done. This can be followed by a complete mental function clinical examination. Hope your query is answered. Do write back if you have doubts. Dr A.Rao Kavoor
