Thanks for the query,

I have noted your comaplaints

The possibility is that of a seizure. This needs to be classified by doing Electroencephalogram. This will clarify the type of epilepsy. Good that CT head is normal. THE MEDICATIONS THAT WILL BE HELPFUL ARE VALPROATE, TOPIRAMATE ETC. You can review with another local neurologist or an Epilepsy specialist for the help

Hope this clarifies your query

Best wishes
