Ask a Neurologist. Get Answers to Your Neurology Questions.
I have reviewed your situation.
What is your question?
It sounds mostly like psychiatric, medication effects, or the like.
Yes of course I read everything.
All of that said, there are odd temporal lobe seizures that can act like this.
That requires an EEG and even then a regular EEG is not always dianostic.
You should discuss a sleep deprived EEG and video EEG both as options with the neurologist.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Temporal lobe seizures often do not follow the typical seizure symptoms.

Staring off into space
In my opinion, you don't likely have seizures at all.
However, that is not 100%, and you need the testing, as your neurologist is doing.
There is no way at all for us to say what caused your seizures.
That would be for your neurologist, but most seizure causes are never found.
Assuming all of your tests are negative, it is more likely psychiatric.
Yes, although there is often another diagnosis as well, but that is for psychiatry to sort out.
They often have several diagnoses after an interview and testing.
Please click a positive at this point.
