so, ive had convulsions/seizures since 2016. they just randomly showed up one day while i was getting ready for school in the bathroom. one moment i was brushing my hair and the next i was on the ground and the woman who adopted me was freaking out.i stayed home from school, and it happened regularly after that. the woman who adopted me stopped caring, and got annoyed by it actually. 2017-2018 i was fainting and seizing everytime i stood up, walked too fast, got out of or into the shower too quickly, jumped too hard, sat up too quickly, or didnt eat. basically, i was seizing constantly. i brought it up to my PC twice but she didnt care, both times saying i had post nasal drip and allergies. *shockingly*, the nasal spray and allergy pills didnt do anything. since then ive given up hope on ever finding out whats the cause or if i should be worried. i kind of dont even want to? apparently if you have bad enough seizures you can have independence taken away. honestly the seizures arent even that bad. from what i can tell they last 2 minutes at most. most of the time im aware or semi aware, sometimes i just fall to the ground and stop moving and/or stay frozen, sometimes i fall to the ground while fighting it/leaning against someone and shaking my way down to the ground, then i tremble and wait for my vision to come back. im never able to see, it's always black when i go down and then it fades back to light when i stand back up. the only thing im kind of worried about it the tingly feeling i get everywhere, and the pain in my heart. it's like my heart is beating three times at once to catch up for a pause. anyone else have anything similar?
