Photosensitive Epilepsy

If I look into the sun, or a light, what happens is that my brain doesn't work and I can't talk or even think about what I want to say.  Has anyone else had this happen and if so has the same thing happened to you?

You need an evaluation at a center specialising in epilepsy. They have a machine that can produce various wavelengths of light and flicker frequencies while you are wired up and observed. Your diagnosis is quite common. There are varying degrees of this disorder.

I see a Neuro-Epilpsy doctor that I see once a year.  I also keep in touch with the Epilepsy Foundation.  I wear dark blue sunglasses to prevent me from have the seizure.  Thanks for responding
