I see you have been told by another neurologist that such brief episodes can be seizures, but I am sorry, I do not concur with his views.
I really do not think these are seizures of any kind. There is no suspicion for SPS (simple partial seizures)/auras, CPS (Complex partial seizures), or Myoclonic seizures etc in you, not at all
The episodes you have been experiencing certainly appear some benign episodes, and I really do not understand how any true seizure can last just for 1 to 3 seconds. I have so many years’ experience as a neurologist (so I am an epilepsy specialist too, not just a neurologist), and I have even done an epilepsy fellowship too after my neurology residency, and I have seen countless number of patients with all kinds of seizure disorder, but I have never seen someone having such brief episodes as you are having and then confirmed to have true seizures.
And also if they were true seizures then why even after several weeks now you are not having any kind of progressive symptoms, it is very unlikely someone has brain pathologies, for example like a brain tumor, which precipitates the seizures – but does not produce any other major manifestations or any progressive symptoms or further worsening etc - it is not possible to be like this.
In the past too I had mentioned to you, if possible it is better to get investigated, with a brain mri scan and also possibly with an eeg study etc, but that is for your reassurances, because when these tests will come normal – as expected - then you will feel fully convinced that you indeed do not have seizures or brain tumors etc – and that was the reason I also had mentioned it is better to undergo investigations
But as far as the possibility of these episodes being real epileptic seizures, I am really not convinced these could represent any kind of true seizures or seizures auras.
Once again I can categorically reassure you, these recurrent extremely brief episodes you have been having are certainly not any kind of true seizures, and there is not even an iota of doubt in this regard, so please not to be scared.
Wishing you the best health!
All the very best!
