about a week ago my girlfriend had this spell.since then its been one or two spells per day..she is doing some sort of jerky stuff with her body and twitching But fully alert and coherent the whole time so its not a seizure.she responds to questioning.these spells last around five minutes sometimes.no particular set reason or time.she could be reading,she could be sleeping,she could be just watching TV.its some sort of convulsive type of activity i guess.i think it could be neurological or muscular but not sure.so far two emergency room visits and both are stumped and don't know.

It could easily be a simple partial seizure - people don't have to lose consciousness. The problem is that it can progress to stronger seaizures. She needs to see a doctor for an EEG. Simple partial seizure - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Has she had a brain scan to rule out a brain tumor?
Don't want to scare you but this is how it starts. I spend a lot of time on a brain cancer forum. If she hasn't had a scan; get her to a neuro asap.

did a brain scan at hospital the other day.all clear.

my next logical step was to figure out what it is thats causing this.she has lipoma also.i've seen about six or seven side affects symptoms right off the bat on that page about paxil.she used to be a very outgoing person.but the last couple years on paxil there has been issues with stuff like suicidal thoughts,crazy nightmares,thoughts of death,extreme depression,bouts of crying,etc. i now think it is connected to the paxil.the doctor at the hospital said it is a good chance paxil is causing it.
