Confused Possible simple partial seizure after mTBI and post concussion syndrome?

Hi everyone

I've had odd neurological cognitive moments since my post concussion syndrome last year, although everything improved massively compared to what it was, so I shouldn't complain too much.

Cognitively I am better than before, but I still get moments like today when I'm given a work project and find it hard to come up with the inspiration and lack any enthusiasm or motivation whatsoever with it. Also finding that my 'acquired dyslexia' still pops up every now and again doesn't help.

Something that was odd that happened made me think that it could have been 'seizure-like', although it also possibly could have been related to me just waking up.

The other day I also had the most odd sensation upon waking up - like I literally couldn't remember anything about the whole wordl/facts about life/who I am etc and that my mind was literally 'stuck' and when I tried to think, it was like the thoughts were stuck and there was just blankness. Very scary and odd.

At other times, especially trying to get to sleep and mostly when I'm tired, I also get the strangest sensations about my different body parts and their orientation to the other body parts - like my brain can't think of the position of my foot at the same time as feeling the sensation of my head.

I can't explain what I mean very well, so sorry if it doesn't make any sense. :-(

Does anyone else ever get any of these? The mind blank and amnesia moment was particularly odd and scary.

My tardive dyskinesia after just a week on first gen antipyschotics last year (LUCKY ME!) doesn't help either... I certainly don't want anything else neurological-related like epilepsy, as I've had pretty much all I can take so far that has gone wrong with my brain... :-(

Hi NooNooHead,

Welcome to the forum! Just like you a few yrs. ago I had Post concussive syndrome and it caused me to be forgetful and tired along with headaches.

As time went by I started to have absence seizures which are a type of seizure where a person blanks out like having amnesia for a few seconds and when the seizure is over you don't remember what happened and you feel tired along with having a headache sometimes.

My advice to you is to let your neuro know about this and write down on a calendar what time this possible seizure happens along with a description by doing this it will help the neuro see if you are having a pattern in your seizures as to what time of day or night and what days of the month they are happening.

I had a lot of seizures after the concussion and my Dr. told me it was do to swelling of my brain along with the bruising of my brain.

If you can have your family Dr. refer you to see an Epileptologist which is a Dr. that specialize in Epilepsy they can be a big help to a person with neuro problems. Also check it out and see a neuropsychiatrist these Drs. do tests on a person and can see what area(s) of the brain are being affected.

Here's wishing you well and May God Bless You!
