About two months I randomly began to experience what my doctor describes as "episodes." They were believed to be seizures, but have been ruled out by several EEG's, CAT Scans, VEEG's, MRI, etc. I began to take Topimax and am currently taking 100mg of that daily. That has contained my episodes a bit, but I am still having them daily. Now they consist of rapid onset of extreme fatigue; Internally I feel as though I will fall asleep instantly, but externally my eyes flutter, I lose control of my neck, and my jaw tightens up. I have to be sitting or else I will collapse. This lasts for 2-20 minutes and then I go right back to my day as if nothing has happened. This happens 0-5 times a day. As I said, this started two months ago, and I have no history of this happening ever before. I have seen a neurologist who ruled out seizures and recommended me to psychiatrist. The psychiatrist recommended me to a ENT, who I have yet to see. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! This is what I am currently experiencing, but two months ago, this all began when I was admitted to the ER for extreme vertigo and a severe migraine. I have a history of migraines.
