I've been recently experiencing more frequent 'attacks' (for want of a better word), whereby I'll be thinking something and my thoughts slow down in the process. They will often slow down so much that it will feel like I am thinking and wading through treacle with the thoughts I am having, almost like metaphorically trying to push my way past something in my head to actually have the thought (if that makes any sense!)
I've had a head injury over two years ago, and have since recovered from post concussion syndrome etc but I did have a period after the head injury where my thoughts were considerably slower and I would struggle to think properly. I've also been getting a lot more headaches recently (I have a history of migraines) and have been waking up more with them. I know that all of these symptoms could be related to the head injury, and psychtropic drugs I was given after (including an antipyschotic and antidepressant), but these episodes really worry me as I am only 36 and it feels like I have some sort of dementia (or even brain tumour!)
My GP has referred me to a neurologist re: the headaches, and I'm coping with my drug induced movement disorder too (tardive dyskinesia). This, of course, may also have a bearing on my mental state as it does make me very anxious at times with all the wretched involuntary movements.
Has anyone else ever had really odd episodes of slowed/reduced thought speed etc? Could these be linked to my head injury or migraines? Or are they possibly something like epilepsy?
