the symptoms of this form of epilepsy strongly resemble many of the other epileptic disorders. although the electrical ativity begins in the parietal lobe, it has a tendency to spread to other parts of the brain causing a wide range of symptoms.

  • loss of sense of where the body is in space (kinesthesis) and a reduced ability to sense the motion of the body.
  • hallucinations or illusions (may be visions, tastes, smells)
  • strong sense of deja vu.
  • muscle contractions usually only affecting part of the body (rare).
  • lip movements.
  • uncontrolled chewing and swallowing.
  • excessive slobbering.
  • forced turning of the head and/or eyes (usually towards opposite side of the affected portion of the brain).
  • numbness, tingling or an 'asleep' feeling (usually only in one area of the body).
  • loss of memory (amnesia) of the seizure and events leading up to it.
