Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms could be related to the side effects of anti-epileptic medications that you are taking. Please get back with the list of medications you are on, along with their doses.

In addition, it can also be an independent problem such as migraine.

Also, if a brain scan has not been done, then, you should undergo an MRI brain to exclude any internal brain problem.

Doing blood tests for haemoglobin, vitamin B12 and vitamin D would also help in finding out any deficiencies that could lead to similar symptoms.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
