Woah! Back in Decmber of 93 I woke up one morning, jerking uncontrollably. I was vaguely aware of what was happening. It only happened once, and it literally scared the hell out of me. Incidently at the time I was in cycle.
Then, October of 94 I hada similar incident walking home late from a friends house. I pased out and when I came to I could not move for several minutes (as I panicked and freaked out, it felt like hours.) When I visited my neuro at the MHNI, I told him about both episodes and he just shrugged it off.

About a year ago a friend of mine witnessed one of my cluster attacks at church. We were rehearsing for something, and it hit me. I did the usual thing I do when I am in an attack : grab my head, rock, etc. Afterwards, he mentioned to me that he has a friend who had fallen and cracked his head a good one. When it healed, a piece of calcium had trapped a part of a nerve at the back of his skull. As a result, he would have siezures. He said that watching me in a CH attack reminded him of his friend having a siezure.
Who has slipped on ice or fallen and hit the back of thier head a good one? I have done it a few times as a youngster - I just wonder if there is any relation to all of it?
Great. My brain was already far from shutting off, now the gears will be squeaking all night.

I still can't believe the news about Angela, that has my brain working overtime in itself.
