Sounds like a seizure, but I have only limited medical training (was going to be a nurse). Surely there are American doctors overseas? If not, maybe India would be a possibility.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I'm going to do some more research on this my own, and look for a good foreign clinic once I have some more information about this.

You have my prayers for your wife.

I wonder if the embassy has a doc that you can see.

Like I said it scares the crap outta me, and I know it's not a dream because I would be able to wake her. She has had blood tests done and they say everything looks normal, but my confidence in the doctors here is 0%
Man, sorry 2 hear about this. I'm not a doctor, but I gotta tell U this. Everyone in Mongolia knows our doctors R not that good. Just as the Chinese ones. Do not believe in 100% with what they said. U might wanna try the hospitals in the US, or Korea (of course South), or Japan 4 a good prognoses.

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 years....it 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.
