767237 tn?1332643777 Any ideas, has anyone ever experienced this?? Some docs say it could be a seizure but I dont think so cause I never lost consiousness and because of how long it lasted. Could this have been a bad manic episode?? Please any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I’m always checking if I see things out of the corner of my eye, or hear thing, or smell things, im always asking my friends to confirm if I have seen/heard things etc, this seems to come in waves, I keep making out faces in carpets rugs etc also – nothing gruesome, it just startles me though fuelling my anxiety. I know this is related to my Schizo hallucination fear.
Avatar f tn The one other symptom that I have mostly kept to myself because it's embarrassing and because I don't want to be stigmatized as crazy is that when I'm really tired or about to fall asleep, I sometimes have these hallucination-like experiences or something. I don't know of a better term to describe them, but they're not hallucinations in the sense that I see animals walking around my room that aren't there or anything like that.
2133558 tn?1368831758 The smell could be phantom smell or olfactory hallucination. It can be a part of temporal lobe epilepsy. If lamictal is not able to control this, then some other drug can be tried in combination. If you have headaches, then this can be aura of migraine. It can also be a early sign of schizophrenia. It can also be due to a problem in olfactory receptor mechanism. This could be due to a smell getting trapped by nasal polyps or tumors.
Avatar n tn A year ago I experienced hypoglycemia and what was described as a partial or temporal lobe seizure. As I lay limp on the floor, unable to move on my own, my right arm and leg began flexing, bending toward my body then flexing outward. Paramedics administered glucose, dextrose and Ativan. In the ambulance I had sinus V-tach. At the hospital I had a brief visual hallucination of my dead father and grandfather, which although I could see them before my eyes, I recognized as a hallucination.
Avatar n tn Im a 23yr old male and i recently o.d'ed on ultram and had a seizure and was takin off ultram. Afterward felt fine for about a week taking 10 vicodin a day until i drank alchohol along with the vic's.
Avatar n tn Stated all presumed and observed seizure activity was purely autistic behavior. Next neuro said no way, definitely seizure disorder. Son has been on Trileptal since last November. Seems to have poor seizure management. Just had 4 seizures 2 days ago. Observed by nurse. Prolonged postictal period. Slept for 5 hours afterwards. Son is on 1200mg Trileptal. Also taking .75mg Risperdal. How come 2 different drs state totally opposite things. Also, what type of epilespy is this??
Avatar n tn It is very characteristic and now I recognize it right away as an hallucination. (In the beginning I thought my neighbor was smoking something funny). I don't have migranes, but I have had 2 or 3 visual migranes in which there was a blurry line that stretched diagonally across my field of vision.
Avatar n tn Susan, A hallucination is a sensory perception(ie voice/noise, vision, tactile, smell/olfaction or taste) in the absence of an external stimuli/source. Auditory then visual hallucinations are the most common type of hallucination found in psychiatric disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression with psychotic features). Olfactory, gustatory(taste) and tactile hallucinations are often more indicative of a physical conditon such as alcohol withdrawal and seizure disorders.
Avatar f tn What your mother is suffering from is probably olfactory hallucination or phantosmia. It is usually due to seizure, or due to schizophrenia or depression or due to an aura of migraine. It can also be due to a problem in olfactory receptor mechanism. This could be due to a smell getting trapped by nasal polyps or tumors. Since it can be something serious, your mother should be seen by a psychiatrist, ENT specialist and a neurologist. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! What you are suffering from is probably olfactory hallucination or phantosmia or phantom smell. It is usually due to seizure, or due to schizophrenia or depression or due to an aura of migraine. It can also be due to a problem in olfactory receptor mechanism. This could be due to a smell getting trapped by nasal polyps or tumors. Sinusitis with post nasal drip can cause both a phantom smell and nausea and this should be investigated first by an ENT.
Avatar n tn If you have physical sensations that are unreal it can be a form of hallucination. I'd say that's more related to the PTSD. PTSD is complex. Often an antipsychotic can be helpful. In addition to talk therapy of course to understand the traumatic issues and develop coping solutions. As for bipolar there are many good mood stabilizers. Google "Depression Central" for more information (for all mood disorders).

Avatar f tn Yes, taking the two drugs together can cause serious side effects, especially a condition called serotonin syndrome which can cause seizure, hallucination, confusion, extreme blood pressure fluctuations, increased heart rate which can go to dangerous levels, blurred vision etc. Please discuss with your doctor before starting. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn Combining these medications can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called the serotonin syndrome, which may include symptoms such as confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe cases may result in coma and even death.
Avatar n tn Its not clear if there are other symptoms that would suggest a seizure disorder. Tegretol is one of many anti-convulsnant agents that may or may not be helpful for treating different seizure disorders. I also want you to realize that a negative EEG does not rule out a seizure disorder. I strongly suggest that your wife be seen by a neurologist for further evaluation and treatment as they are the experts in this area. Good luck.

Avatar n tn I had psychomotor epilepsy as a child. I have been seizure-free for 30 years. I very recently had a couple of visual episodes which were reminiscent of seizures I remember. One actually woke me up. I would like to know if it is possible for epilepsy to recurr, what the chances are that it would, also what I should be on the look out for since I was very young during the period I was being treated and did not really participate in any discussion of it with the doctor.

Avatar n tn I am a 56 yr female. A neurologist told me that I had had a brain seizure. He put me on Lamictal 100mg because of the following symptoms I had experienced over a 4 days period: hallucination, visual and audial, short term memory loss(complete sudden loss of memory intermittantly during conversations), inability to concentrate, total unconsiousness for a couple of hours, and no memory at all of one day.
Avatar n tn In early 2001 I had an episode that for some reason made me think seizure. I went to the ER and left out the detail of the hallucination, because I was afraid and was told it was the NCS (I am sure because I was already diag with it, too). Anyway, my cardio and a couple other cardios disagreed and felt seizure. So, on to a neuro and then an epileptologist. Video EEG showed some sharps and spikes, and slowing (the slowing showed on other EEG's) but no real seizure. Diagnosis epilepsy.
Avatar n tn I have been on Keppra and Lamotrigene for many months for seizures. No problem with seizure meds but began having terrible oder issues ,everything smells horrible - skin, food , lotions, shampoos etc. Could this be interaction with these meds . ?
Avatar f tn I am 37 years old and had a grand mal seizure in March 2008 and then 2 in the same day in July 2008. After the first seizure I had all the standard tests which came back normal. They have now put me on 300mg. of Dilantin and have not had any grand mal seizures since, however I have experienced other types of seizures. My husband seems to think that I have had these other types of seizures between the times of the grand mal seizures, we just didn't know what they were then.
Avatar n tn ) The intensity of these residual buzzings generally subsides in a few minutes and disappears altogether, although it still feels like I have been drugged and I can't really think straight. Is this simply part of the sleep paralysis / hypnogogic hallucination scenario? Or is it something I should have examined further?
6104130 tn?1379189411 Dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, hallucination, headache, nervousness, seizure Dermatologic: Pruritus, rash, urticaria Gastrointestinal: Xerostomia Neuromuscular & skeletal: Involuntary movements, paresthesia, tremor It would be wise to discuss this with your primary care physician, when you next have health insurance and, in the meantime, do not take any more Vistaril or any drugs in its pharmacologic class.
Avatar m tn You could be suffering from olfactory hallucination or phantosmia or phantom smell. It is usually due to seizure (temporal lobe epilepsy), or due to schizophrenia or depression or due to an aura of migraine. After drinking too much alcohol you can have olfactory hallucinations which affect your taste. This is usually a withdrawal symptom. However, if it is persisting, alcoholic hepatitis should be ruled out. It can also be due to a problem in olfactory receptor mechanism.

Avatar n tn Brain tumor can be a cause of olfactory hallucination. Apart from that i think you can also get an ENT examination done to rule out nasal polyps, rhinitis and deviated nasal septum. Epilepsy can also cause this symptom. I suggest you to get CT scan of brain and see an ENT specialist.Good Luck!
