Strange symptoms-please help.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I don’t really know how to describe, but I have had very strange symptoms lately. First off, I have thes episodes where nothing seems real, I feel out of my body, I get shaky, disoriented, and then go into a full blown panic attack. I also feel numb and floaty, and just out of it. Other desperate symptoms are that I am always tired, no matter how much I sleep. I constantly blink my left eye, and get headaches in the left side of my head. I smell gasoline at random times, I blank out a lot, my vision goes dark, sometimes I feel like I’m not real when I talk to people and/or in big crowds, and just a lot of other weird stuff. I just got out of the hospital after a 3 day eeg, and they didn’t pick anything unusual up. I am about to turn 15, and I just want to feel normal again. Thats all I really want. Does anyone know what this could be? Seizures, auras, anxiety, a brain tumor? I really want to get whatever is wrong fixed. I miss feeling normal and being able to have fun instead of staying curled up in my room. Anyone know what could be happening?

    Dear Bschluter23,

       My son who is now 26 years old started having episodes like you as a small child and still has them at least twice a week.  He has never been tested because he preferrs not to be.  He goes into a panic when these happen.  Seizures run in our family of six.  My mother had seizures. I believe it has come down the DNA from her.  I was on seizure meds but they do have their side effects, nasty. I don't believe "normal" can happen again once these episodes happen. I get on with life. Speak to your doctor about possible medication to ease these up for you.  Speak to your parents.  Family's love is important. My son goes on with his life the best he can. I lisoned to his feelings and tried to reassure him.  I'm hear for you.
