Similar. I jumped off couch late one night feeling extreme heat all over, yelled FIRE. By the time I reached upstairs, a mere 40 feet, my face went numb from top down. I was also tomato red all over. Husband took me to hospital fearing numbness might stop breathing. I was diagnosed with non-specific paresthesia. Very scary. No medical help. It passed in an hour. Since been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, with 14 symptoms. Having seizures is just a fun addition.

With my 'auras' I get numbness or the feeling I am sparkling. Feels like a million small fireworks all over. I know then a seizure will follow quickly so I lay down.

I joined this group because my son had a seizure, but reading these posts makes me wonder if I was experiencing auras+ when I was in my teens/early 20s.

There were times when my vision would be interrupted by patches of fuzzy grey spots that I used to describe as missing puzzle pieces.

My auras/simple partial seizures are kind of hard to describe. I start to get a very strange feeling in the back of my head. Even more specifically, it is on the back right side. Sometimes things look weird people around me say I have an odd look on my face. I get no auras prior to my complex partials, which is troublesome.

I experience Physical Automatisms just before the seizures (this is a warning sign for me) and then experience the taste and smell after i come to throughout the confusion i still know who I am and what just happened. I just can't move for awhile.
