hello, this morning i woke up, was fine for a while, then i got blurry vision, and i tried to walk but i couldnt, one thing i was doing was taking elephant steps, or stomping my feet,( every once in a while). i had to have my fiancee practically carry me to the bed, where he said i had slurred speech and my eyes were doing weird things, he also said i flailed my arms. i remember most of this. what is going on with me?

OK, some activity due to Low Blood Pressure can mimic seizures. Get a Blood Pressure Monitor (ebay or similar sites). Kitty, if it was seizure activity, I have met others' who remember their 'episodes', too. So, nothing unusual there. OK? Hmmm??? How about Hormone fluctuations? Were you due for, during or after menstruation, when this occurred? Can you remember when you noted the blurry vision? What you were doing B4??

Hope you are doing better today. HUGS!

Love Candi
