Unexplained crying spells, severe headaches. Test reports normal. Possible cause?

I have been having unexplained crying spells (I m not sad), then when that passes, it s followed by a severe headache . When the headache goes away, I have a spell of lost time. Those watching said that it s as if I ve turned into a zombie. I don t faint or fall, I can still walk around and sometimes wake up doing something completely different than I was before. I went to the hospital last night and they did a chest xray , head CT, blood work, and EKG .. nothing turned up. I m at a loss on what to try next.

Neurologist 's  Response
Dear patient

This spells which are very short duration associated with emotional lability and impairment of sensorium with change in awareness most likely are suggestive of seizures which are arising from temporal part of brain. I would strongly recommend MRI Brain And EEG. MOST important you need consultation with a neurologist.
