Question: I am 75 yr old woman diagnosed over a year ago w temporal lobe
seizures. I am currently sorting out events from the last year that for one reason or another did not pass by the neurologist
. Do you think the following is likely an example of anxiety
, the result of side effects from meds, or seizure activity? The example is as follows:
I was on a bus,for quite a long time deep in thought. I was thinking about a childhood event – pondering my mother’s behavior – really engrossed. I looked up and saw that the bus was coming to my stop, but when I looked out the window the scene was completely unfamiliar to me [even though it was half a block from my home.] I was disoriented, dizzy and very scared. The bus stopped. I stepped out. Everything was as familiar as ever. I was dazed for a little bit but by the time I got home I was fine.
What do you think? Many thanks!
