For the past month and a half, I have experinced almost every morning since early December nerve impulses that starts in certain areas of my brain and rushes down my spine and back of my legs. It is almost instanteneous because once it happens, it comes and goes that quickly. Afterwards, I always wake up with a slightly different feeling of myself than before. Four times during that time period, I have had experiences where part of my brain would "sizzle" causing me to temporary become paralysised, but it only lasted a few seconds and I can move afterwards. However, I just feel something lacking within me before that happened. To give you an idea, I feel that there is a missing layer of mental acuity from yesterday. I can feel it in my face. Overtime, layer after layer seems to disappear from my face, which may be my intellect that I had not there anymore. One time recently for example, I woke up to feel the lower back portion of my head begin to motorize. It actually sounded like a motorcycle from what I could hear while I was paralysised beliefly again. This must have lasted ten seconds because it did not go away as fast as the other times. And the other three instances when I was paralysised briefly, the right back portion of my brain sizzled a few seconds, but it did not motorize like the last time on January 4, 2002. When I get up, I sense a slight mental decline and fatigue from the previous day and a perception that I seem to have lost. A few attitudes that I was so strong on just dropped off like it was nothing really to worry about afterall. I also notice my balance when walking is slightly off than before and I have become more irritible recently. I have noticed at times some memory lapses from simple instructions and less of an ability to concentrate on understanding than I did yesterday. Now my head feels slightly heavy while walking. These sensations I have the majority of the time occurs in the early morning without warning, but does at times, occur in the late evening too, but not often and without warning too. Has anyone ever had these symptoms before? Is there a name for it? I'm thinking it is a minor stroke, but I have no actual proof of that.
