Have seizures, every movement is slow, forehead, neck hurts. face itchy, sweaty, cold after coming out. Reason?

I have been having seizures, I become slow, I start staring, my eyes will start blinking and then I feel like slow motion...I move my hands and fingers I will hold my hands together moving them over and over, My lips start smacking, I move my mouth in weird ways. I will turn my head from side to side very slowly where I feel like every movement is so slow. My top of my head and front forehead hurts. My sides of my neck hurts. I feel I am aware but can't control whats happening. When I start to come out of it 1, 2, 3 minutes later I feel my face itchy, sweaty, cold and wanting to eat candy...I have noticed sometimes this starts while I am eating or right after I eat.

Neurologist 's  Response
Nov 2013
Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms are suggestive of a type of seizures, called as complex partial seizures. These often occur due to abnormalities in temporal lobe of brain. You require a detailed evaluation by a neurologist to establish the diagnosis and start the appropriate treatment.

Evaluation would include detailed history to decide the semiology of seizures (the clinical seizure type), MRI brain-epilepsy protocol, electroencephalography (EEG), etc.

You would require treatment with anti-epileptic drugs, with which we expect good clinical improvement.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
