Parietal Lobe Epilepsy

I have tremendous Migraines and they are poorly managed no matter what treatments me and my Neurologist have gone through. I also have a lesion that is not measured when noted on my MRI to the left side of my brain. I have been trying to reduce my Gabapentin. I take Trokendi 200mg a day and 800mg Gabapentin twice a day. I had reduced it down to once a day. This sensation is not new to me as I have experienced it on and off for a couple years now and did not know what to think about it. However, I notice this occurs as of late when I  don't take the Gabapentin twice a day. I could swear this a seizure activity. I can feel when it's coming on. I feel numbness to my face. It's much stronger to the right side and it goes down my neck. I have to sit down because my whole body feels terrible. I find it difficult to even speak because I feel so bad. I tense up. My vision darkens a little. I even feel an odd orgasmic sensation in my lower back. My brain spazzes out. I even feel winded when this occurs. It lasts between 1 1/2 -2 minutes. The intensity can vary. Some days this can occur more often I have am exercising because I love my exercise even if I struggle with unbearable migraines. I even wonder if my migraines have affect on this lesion. The MRI reports only refer to the lesion small focus of susceptibility in the high left parietal lobe as a calcification, cavernous malformation or a previous hemorrhage. It appears to be just below the surface.  For now I just call them Brain storms.

Actually I can't speak at all. I had another one tonight and gave a go at talking. No luck it's just noises. I think the alien implant in my head is causing all the trouble.
