What's wrong with me?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Ever since I was a kid, I've had these weird symptoms. I'll be thinking normally and then all of a sudden, it's like my thoughts crash against me like my mind has just been shocked electrically. It's hard to explain but my thoughts just kind of stop abruptly like a bike crashing into a wall. After that, my thoughts kind of slow down for a few minutes and it's like the world is spinning in slow motion. My thoughts speed up again after a few mintues or a few seconds, but it's just confusing. It went away for a few years, but in the past few weeks it's happened over and over again and I don't know what the hell is wrong. Does anyone else know anything this could be related to?

    Well you need to see a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis. If it's worrying you then you need to find out, or put your mind at rest. If you find it difficult to explain, then write it down as you have here. What springs to my mind is a minor form of epilepsy, which involves electrical signals in the brain, but I really know nothing more about it than that. I hope you can get it sorted out. Pixie.

    Hello annalh

    You need to talk to your GP. Make a list expaining these feelings and how you feel.

    It may be a disosiation caused by a form o epilepsy.

    Let us know how you get on

    Explain to your doctor in detail what's happening. Tell the doctor you're worried as well, that you might like a brain scan or something along those lines. All the best.
