I have Celiac. I get seizures during the night. They have decreased in frequency, but have been observed and I am told they are grand mal. I wake from a sound sleep. My eyes turn upward and to the right. My head slowly turns to the right. I start frothing at the mouth and am unable to swallow or call for help. I lose consciousness and wake with the right side of my tongue severely bitten.
On an everyday basis, I have experienced problems with speech and with clarity of thought and memory. Once or twice I have experienced odd loss of emotions, like laughter and tears for no reason. They clear up quickly.
MRIs have been taken but only weeks after a seizure occurs. They show some vein abnormalities in the right temporal lobe, but these do not seem to have changed over the past two or three years.
Is there something I can ask my doctor to check to come to a diagnosis on this?
