Temporal lobe seizures initiate in the temporal lobes of your brain, which process emotions and are important for short-term memory. Some symptoms of a temporal lobe seizure may be related to these functions, including having odd feelings such as euphoria, deja vu or fear. A sudden sense of unprovoked fear, a feeling that what's happening has happened before. A sudden or strange odor or taste. A rising sensation in the abdomen.
In general, the positive points of the previous and current classifications are as follows: the diagnosis is based on typical clinical description, there is recognition of anatomical areas, the addition of mTLE with HS which is a common type of syndrome, and the inclusion of some specific features such as genetic, structural, and unknown that may help to classify some etiologies in patients with TLE. The negative aspects of the available classifications are the exclusion of MRI criteria and video-EEG findings to diagnose and classify patients
Anticonvulsant medications may help reduce or eliminate recurrent seizures in some people. They include carbamazepine, divalproex sodium, gabapentin, lamotrigine. Temporal lobe seizures may be difficult to completely control with medication alone. It is not unusual for a person to have an occasional temporal lobe seizure despite taking the correct amount of medication.
