My husband seems to have all the symptoms of absence seizures. He went to a neurologist that ran all kinds of tests and because all tests came back normal he diagnosed him with TIA's. Our regular Dr does not agree with this diagnosis and feels it is seizures even though his EEG tests were normal. He has one of these 3 or 4 times a year and is unresponsive and disorientated and sometimes has no idea where he is for awhile. He is very tired and does not feel well after an attack. Most of the things I have read says adults rarely have this kind of seizure. Does any one have any information or similar symptoms.View Thread
Thank you dancer for answering my post. So I guess it could be either TIA's or seizures. Either way, they have the same symptoms it seems. One of my concerns is whether he should be driving. This last one was preceeded by blurred vision and being dizzy. He has had these off and on for three years. He only has one every three or four months, which is a blessing.View Thread
