I have afew questions to ask:
Have you had any labs done? If not, please ask for electrolytes and blood glucose.
Can you describe these attacks further, like if they're preceeded by a headache, or nausea? Does this feeling of pins and needles start as localised and then spread along the left side of your body? How many attacks per day and how long does each attack last? Does the ativan help in relieving or abolishing these symptoms?
Finally, is there any family history of epilepsy?
