General & Family Physician 's  Response
You got hallucinations then, and depending whether they are sensory or motor, a neurologist decides on the appropriate treatment. A CT scan is desirable in this case with an exam to monitor and measure your electrical activity in the brain called an Electro Encephalogramme done in nuerology services.
With results of these exams, a clear cut diagnosis is then made and a proper treatment plan proposed.
I suggest you visit your neurologist.
Thanks and fast recovery,

Hello ~

You seem to be experiencing "seizures" in a different part of your brain. It seems like you have had a history of motor seizures that you remember. Having derealization and visual hallucinations is common in seizure disorders. It seems like you are having these things happen to you for a long time now and you need medical attention. You will need to see a neuropsychiatrist to rule out seizures and have your complete history taken so as to best help you. I hope this helps.

Take care.
