Abnormal EEG with no spikes and epileptic activity
Your doctor may be right
It may be varient of Migrane that why you feel different than the earlier on
A remote possibilty is some time atypical epileptic phenenomena may present like this
Bllod test does not seem to of any help
with treatment of migrane an ntileptic drug may be given a fair trial
MRI of Brain is also advisable to rule out cause of cofusional state
Will like to have a feed back after few months
wish you good health
