Hi, I am a 38 yo female. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Hypothyroidism. I am also on Metoprolol for a fast heart rate. This morning I was getting ready for work and talking to my husband when I zoned out. I don't recall what was going through my mind for the few seconds, but when he finally got my attention, he asked what I was thinking about. I wasn't sure how to respond - I was fuzzy headed, but I regained my composure, kissed him goodbye, gathered my things and left for work, feeling fine. This has happened several times, sitting and standing - just a few seconds of "zoning", I would say - at most- twice a month that I recognize. My husband says it is like I get distracted and stare a hole through things. I don't think there are any unvoluntary movements or sounds, I just freeze. Is there a chance that this is some sort of seizure?
I am going to start this by saying I am not a doctor, but I can try and help you. It's hard to say what is going on with you when this happens. It could very well be a type of seizure, but I don't know. It sounds like you might want to give your doctor a call.
