    Hello and sorry for what you're going through. I'm not a doctor but please research "pseudo seizures" or "psycho-genic non-epileptic seizures". These are very real seizures caused by stress, anxiety, etc. I've researched them some because a family member of mine has been diagnosed with this.

    We know our bodies and minds must deal with stress. Sometimes, people's bodies deal with stress with these episodes. THESE ARE REAL.

    It's good you're getting all the testing done, though. I'm not trying to diagnose you, of course, but thought I'd put this out there for you to look into.

    This is a good place for support so I'm glad you found your way here!

    Hi Angel,

    Welcome to the community. Your story is mindboggling. I am so sorry that you have had to suffer so much. No one should have to go through all that pain.

    The seizures sound awful. I pray that all of the tests will reveal a cure for them, that your fibro is under control so that you can have many, many more normal days and that you get to spend a lot of them at the beach.

    You will be on my mind and in my heart.

    Soft hugs,
