Brief Answer:
Need to rule out complex partial seizures.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted the details and would like you to exclude complex partial seizures, which can cause similar symptoms.

This would require doing an MRI brain-epilepsy protocol and an electroencephalography (EEG).

Once confirmed, medications are there to control these symptoms.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
