Does Anyone Else Feel A "Deja Vu" Before They Have A Seizure?

Does Anyone Else Feel A "Deja Vu" Before They Have A Seizure?

Sometimes it is a feeling like I have been in that same exact spot, looking at the same exact thing I have seen in a dream. Sometimes I even wake up to a "Deja Vu" and feel nausea and like I have to diarrhea at the same time.

My seizures start with a deja vu every time.Even if the seizure is for only a fleeting moment. that feeling of familiarity feels good yet is very scary.

I also did something to come back to reality when it happened. But I liked the feeling (I actually called them mini orgasms), even though it was very scary and I could feel the fear in my chest. I didn't mind having it happen even though I knew it was wrong, The major problem was that the mini seizures caused me to forget and less focus.

I did before my diagnosis and it could last for up to a minute. I would try and break the Deja vu by moving objects around or take off my jewellery. It felt scary because I knew that I had never been to a place or done that before but the Deja vu made me think I had. Now I am on my meds I haven't had anything for 3 years.

I have that feeling during a full tonic clonic, complete with auditory hallucinations. Like "I've definitely done this before".
