I have had temporal lobe epilepsy associated with hippocampal sclerosis for a few years now, on keppra that has been working well since Christmas 2014. but have recently had 3 episodes where my head feels very hot and heavy and everything looks strange like I have to look at everything especially water or anything moving. I can hear what people are saying but it is as if I forget what they say just afterwards as I can't respond or speak apart from nod and shake my head lightly. The first time I couldn't get my hand to write in an exam and my most recent one I wanted to walk around and my legs felt heavy and achey when I wasn't standing. Normally after seizures I need 10-15 minutes to recover and not feel tired and don't remember the seizure, but after these I feel extremely tired like I could sleep on my feet, very dizzy and I rock side to side, and takes over 1 hour to feel better after a sleep. all the symptoms stay the whole time and I remember the episode. I wondered if this is a different type of seizure and if so what as I can't seem to find much information about it. Any news would be useful as they are scary and make me feel a nuisance as I can hear what's happening just something's not quite right and they are so time consuming!
