    Strange symptoms, don't know where to turn.

    Hi everyone, My name is Abby and I am a 21 year old college student. I was diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy when I was 17, and so was my twin sister (strange, I know). They attributed it to us being born prematurely. Anyways, I have been having these horrible night time episodes that come...

    Seizure, sleep paralysis, or something else?

    Hello! I am relatively new here. I've been researching what's going on with me for the last few years, but can't get all the symptoms to match up. This started about 10 years ago right when I got up, went to the bathroom, then went to the refrigerator for something to drink. As soon as I got...

    Sleep Paralysis

    Does having Epilepsy or maybe the meds increase the chance of having Sleep Paralysis? I think I spelled it right. I hate when it occurs at night. I'm not scared of much, but SP is a very creepy feeling. Hallucinations, sounds, can't talk or move, but you're awake. Must admit, better than a...

    Sleep Paralysis and E

    I'm very curious to know if sleep paralysis is a type of seizure, is it related to E or is it unrelated?

    inability to speak

    I recall waking up one morning and hearing a familiar voice but I was never able to answer it. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't respond. I wasn't fully awake because I don't remember seeing anything. I have had 2 grand mal seizures in my life while I was asleep (never had an inability to...

    Outer body experience

    Just throwing this one out there because I want to vent. I'm wondering if anybody else experiences this. I call it an outer body experience. It's hard to explain it but it bugs the crap out of me. I get this about once a day. I feel like I'm looking down on myself trying to control my actions...
