I had what is being described as idiomatic seizures. I got floored a lttle over two weeks ago. CT scans + blood tests = no explanation. Scared the crap out of poor Mrs FirstAmongstDaves who thought I was having a stroke. Bad nightmares and headaches for a week or so afterwards (I’ve never had a headache in my life, so that was new). I had last week off to rest my brain and get some sleep, and feel much better now. But my planned holiday in December to Egypt, Libya and Tunisia has been put off to next year just in case. I don’t want to need to go to emergency when I’m in the North African desert.
The doctor in emergency said “idiopathic” means “we have no idea”. He recommended ECG tests to determine if I am epileptic. But he also said that they were unlikely to reveal anything unless I was actually having a seizure.
Two weeks, no sign of another stroke, and I haven’t bothered with the ECG tests. Should I?
