Somatosensory Seizures

Hello there. I recently discovered that the kind of seizure I am having is called a "somatosensory seizure". I was wondering if anyone else here has these types of seizures and if there was anyone here who could give me some more information on these types of seizures and what the best form of treatment is.

Somatosensory seizures are focal seizures. They originate from the parietal or the occipital lobes.

The focal seizures in these areas may give rise to symptoms depending upon the area involved. Some people have experiences of any of the sensory modalities, while other may have pain, sexual or paralytic symptoms.

The treatment is mainly focused around anti-epileptic medication.
