Positive Romberg test?

Positive Romberg test?

I very quickly failed the Romberg Test (where I put my feet together and close my eyes), as I started falling sideways and the neurologist actually had to catch me within 1 second of my closing my eyes. It feels like when my eyes are closed I have no idea where I am in space, nor where the floor is! Is this a common occurrence? If not, should I be worried?

Apart from others being a witness to an absence seizure, the Depth Electrode Test is the only test that really gave me some answers.

I failed the Romberg too. No idea I was falling.
He had me march in place with eyes closed too. When he told me to stop, I had turned 90 degrees and didn't know it. Odd.

I actually passed the last EEG exam I took just because of how comfortable I was in the room that time I wasn't thinking about the EEG at all . I was occupied with and interested in the lady in the room. We had a very good conversation we were very absorbed in conversation about her dogs and the mannerisms of pit bulls.
My results came back no siezure activity.
My neurologist and my family physician were both in awe. No one has seen this in any of my test yet.
