so my boyfreind of 2 years has been having these "deja vu's" ever since he was a teenager. he doesnt get them very often but maybe ifs he's been drinking, he'l have one a few days later. they maybe occur about 5-10 times in a year.
his mum had the exact same thing but grew out of it in her early twenties. he is currently 25 years old.
when they happen he talks a bit of gibberish, like hes trying to rememeber something, then afterwards his short term memory is no good, and he cant rememeber where were going or doing, but he knows who i am, and everything comes back to him in a minute or 2. it has happened while hes been driving and he can function fine, no blackouts at all. once he did feel a bit nauseous afterwards but that has never happened since.
he relys on driving for his job, and has not informed a gp of this, and thinks hel grow out of as his mum did. hes afraid to lose his license even for a year.
ive tried to read alot about it and there is conflicting reports saying that if its untreated it will get worse for sure, however others have said its a simple partial seizures where consciousness isnt affected then its not likely to get worse. As it is likely a genetic thing, i would make assumtpion that its not likely to progress, as its not scar tissue in the brain, causing new faulty connections to form, but something that has been there for years and may be unchanging.
has anyone any thoughts....i know most will probably say go to the gp but long term medication seems to have so many side effects...but on the otherhand hes risking more severe forms of seizures or memory loss....
