In Topic: Are these all neurological symptoms?

An EEG is nothing to fear.  They put some conductive goop on your scalp and attach a dozen or so sensors to the goop.

They have you hyperventilate a bit and monitor your brain waves for 5 minutes or so.  In a week or two, you get the interpretation

and you know something about your neurological health. It wasn't very memorable, but that's the way I remember it.

The results can be a life changer.  They were for me.

I guess I when I'm ready one of these days, idk when that will be...

Doesn't matter what I think.  If you have neurological symptoms, then you should consider having the tests that evaluate neurological symptoms.

Or, you can let 40 years go by, and then do something.  Or not.  It's completely up to you.

I'm scared of going out a lot of times, let alone traveling, then sitting in chairs/machines uncomfortably, where my blood pressure skyrockets at the doctor offices.

I was told my EEG showed significant pathology in my dominant temporal lobe, consistent with the EEG of someone who had a history of epileptic seizure.

Funny as it sounds, I lived for 40 years while suffering focal temporal lobe seizures without recognizing them for what they were.

The seizures caused alterations of consciousness, without causing loss of consciousness.  I had absence seizures, seizures with powerful deja vu,

seizures which imitated panic attacks. I had actually figured all this out for myself, prior to asking for the EEG, so the results didn't surprise me.

I was researching in a british medical library and reading a neurological research journal when I found a case history that explained my life illness in every

minute detail.  I was suffering from a worst case scenario of a rare epileptic syndrome where the posti ictal psychosis of the initial temporal lobe seizures

segue into an affective disorder of major depression.  Viola!  and Eureka!  I immediately consulted with an epileptologist to verify my self diagnosis.

The EEG confirmed I had been living unaware, with epilepsy comorbid with recurrent major depression.  Well, I knew I had been suffering episodes of

major depression, and I knew it all started when I was 17 after a neurological trauma, but I didn't have the complete understanding until age 57.

You think I may suffer slight epileptic activity given the treatments I listed that've helped and my developing symptoms?

CT, CAT, EEG, MRI. Those are the neurological tests which can give you concrete answers to your questions.  This board can only give you opinions.  I recommend the EEG, becuase

that's the test that gave me my answers, after 40 years of suffering many of the symptoms you list.

I know this is personal, but may I ask, what was your results?

I recommend looking into and researching "Kanna" aka "Sceletium tortuosum" as well. Traditional Medicinals sells a tea for it called "Cup of Sunshine". Ain't the prettiest smelling thing in the world, as it is a fermented, I believe, but it is easy to adjust to after brewing.
