Emotional Numbness?

Emotional Numbness?

Weird question, but does anyone else sometimes get so worked up that their emotions just kind of dull (or go away completely) for a short period of time? I only recently discovered I've been experiencing this for years. I thought it was normal? But when I asked my mom about it, she mentioned I've been doing it for as long as she can remember. I asked my Therapist who immediately told me to ask my Neurologist, which I will be doing today. Does anyone else experience something similar?

The last two seizures i had, when i became aware of things, i just remember feeling nothing. Any motions i went trough ay movements were jusy very limited and i couldnt feel any emotions. That lasted for the rest of the day. Hadnt happened to me before this week, and i never had dealt with depression or anxiety. Normally in tune with any emotions i feel, but it was after seizurss that my emotions went numb.

After a seizure I'm just exhausted and sleep for 5 hours. No room for feelings until later.

I don’t think that has happened to me in relation to epilepsy. People do become numb after traumatic events. I worked with domestic violence survivors for a long time. I eventually just numbed out, and that did impact other parts of my life.
