Brief Answer: It can be seizure or TIA. Consult a neurologist Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for choosing WWW.WWWW.WW The symptoms you are describing are called disturbed higher mental functions. These symptoms can be due to suddenly developed reduced blood supply to some parts of brain called pre-frontal area. This episode is called Transient Ischemic Attack. It is a temporary problem and resolves after some time. Other cause can be a Seizure disorder. These and other possibilities can be clarified by EEG, CT-Scan Head and blood tests. You should consult a neurologist to help you find what it is. Hope it helps. Any more query is welcome. DR SAATIISH JHUNTRRAA

Rimactazid 450 mg, mycobutol 1000 mg, pza ciba 1500 mg n pyrodixin. I am takingng these tablets for TB infection which I started initially due to positive TB which later was overruled on further diagnosis. Can that be one of the reason or can that help in diagnosing my problem?

Brief Answer: Get EEG and CT scan of head Detailed Answer: hello yes, this piece of information can be useful. Tuberculoma (TB infection in brain)is a small granuloma which can produce these symptoms and give positive test for TB. CT Scan head and EEG will further help in diagnosis. If it is positive, you need to be put on anti epileptics and anti tubercular medicines. Good Luck DR SAATIISH JHUNTRRAA
