Hi everyone. So i was wondering if anyone had depersonlization/ derealization and then found out it was caused by epilepsy? I was talking to a nurse and she seems to think i have some of the symptoms of epilepsy... but i wanted some stories of anyone on here..

i have the normal symptoms of dp like..

i dont feel real

i feel high

surroundings look odd.

But sometimes i get a even worse attack where i feel soo drugged out of nowhere.... then i forget what happened 20 minutes before the attack.. after about 20 minutes i feel better.

Any thoughts?

It might be related to the seizures. I suspect epilepsy and have EEG abnormalities. I also have DPDR.
But I have had the supposed seizures for 7 years and the DPDR for one year, each starting with significant life events (seizures - stress induced, DPDR - med induced).
What EEG abnormalities did you have?
I have electrical intensifications (larger than normal spikes), but I've never recorded an actual seizure on EEG.
In which part of the brain?
