This seems to bring her out of the convultion state (toke me a while to figure this out, at first I didn't know what the hell to do, and would just try to wake her my shaking her, even tried pouring water on her, none of these worked)

Andy doctor her that has any idea of what this could be? It is a pretty traumatic experience for me, however she never remembers these episodes. Regardless of how everyone thinks that the Chinese are so smart, their medical care is 50 years behind ours, they still prescribe herbs and all sorts of disgusting tasting tea, which I have tried for some ailments but never worked for me

Sorry I just saw this thread brother. I would definetly look for a neurologist...what you are describing sounds like a "partial-complex seizure"...more or less what may be going on her her brain is the equivelent of putting an aluminum bat against an electric fence.

My wife had these type of seizures for was as if she just "checked out" for a bit. Does she become very lethargic after coming back around?

PM me if that sounds familiar buddy.
