My partials consist of a sensation of weakness on the left side of my body, some briefly, sometimes much longer and smelling unpleasant odors, usually something burning but can also be a sickly, sweet smell. The odors very frequently last for hours/ maybe days. The longer the symptoms last the more exhausted I become. They usually last longer if I have been ill or very tired. If they are brief, seconds to just a couple minutes they don't seem to leave me exhausted.The term simple partial encompasses such a range of events. Quite a few years ago, I had a couple instances of odd visual distortions. I also had and continue to often have the burning smells (that can be very strong and sometimes last for hours), and just recently had the simple partials that start with one limb shaking and then that uncontrolled movement spreading down the left side of my body.
I know the word "simple partial" is a label-but it covers so many different events. When people here refer to having simple partials, I am never sure which kind they mean In general, do you use this term to mean one kind more than another?
