According to Wikipedia, déjà vu
is the experience of feeling sure that one has already witnessed or experienced a current situation, even though the exact circumstances of the previous encounter are uncertain and were perhaps imagined.
What creeps me out about the déjà vu is that I have heard it is often an aura for temporal lobe epilepsy. My tumor is in the parietal lobe, but the parietal is right next to the temporal lobe, and if my tumor were to ever spread, it could, theoretically, spread to the temporal lobe.
Additionally, all day I have been getting pins and needles sensations on the right side of my body (where my seizures normally manifest).
Is everyone else this much of a nutcase? I need to stop over-thinking things.
Super Awesome Nurse ordered a “just in case” MRI for me, and I am getting that tomorrow. I am sure nothing in my brain has changed, but even if all is well, my seizure-ness is certainly acting up.
Until then… read this cool entry at HowStuffWorks.com about how déjà vu works in our brains (the biological part is more about epilepsy).
