Does Anybody Else Just Zone Out

Does Anybody Else Just Zone Out

I have times where i just zone out i dont think its a seisure like i am still there and know whats going on but im totaly in thought about somthing and i usualy dont know what that somthing is i Notice im doing it somtimes and almost have to pull myself out of it. people notice and always ask me if im ok.

what do you guys think i dont want to ask my neurologist he will just say its a seisure and upp my meds.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member i asked you this...when you are zoneing out, is it a couple of minutes or all day or both (a couple of minutes a lot per day)? if you.... A) are having a zone out for a couple of minutes... you are probably having an aura seizures (inner partial seizure). B) all day, it is the meds. C) have both, it is a gray area. you might have a seizure and/or the meds or both.
the only way to tell for certain is the eeg test. hook you up and pray that you have a zone out.
anyway... when i have an aura seizure, i tingle and zone out (i call um spaceouts).
anyway...anyway... that is my advice... go to your dr and get a eeg test and hope you have a zone out.

This is what happens to me. I zone out, I’m there but not there but it can be as dangerous as a seizure so for me (and my neurologist) it is one

I've gone through this many times myself. As long as it doesn't turn into a seizure I think you're fine. If you think he won't believe you then don't tell him. But make sure to watch out for warning signs like your auras.
