Brief Answer:
Symptoms could be due to seizures or panic

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting your query in details.

The symptoms are suggestive of seizures (a type of fits) or panic attacks. However, since the EEG is abnormal, seizures should be our first diagnosis. Normal MRI of brain is a good news.

The best medicine in this case could be oxcarbazepine. Your current symptoms seem to be side effects of medicines you are taking. Please discuss with your neurologist about side effects and the option of changing the medicines.
There is no need to worry as you would improve with treatment.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
