Oh and acid reflux will cause burning sensations. Brain Tumors do not.

Thanks for the input. After I posted this my husband and I went out for ice cream and I have an intense déjà vu experience and I was tired afterward. I just don't see how these aren't seizures :-(

You are convincing yourself these are seizures. You went and saw your regular GP, who said you were fine. Had a CT scan, and have some great answers above. Time to start believing you are ok! I know its hard and im currently going through something similar, but I remind myself every chance I get that im ok! Just keep telling yourself you are okay.

I should not say this cause I don't want you to create more symptoms but a partial seizure is when someone goes into a daze for a few minutes and does not even know it. Then after they are back with their surroundings, they have no idea that they just had a partial seizure. My aunt has these and has for years but they are a lot less now. Her son has the big ones and most of the time they are sudden.

If you think you are having them then go to a dr and have a brain test done I EEG or something like that. But you are doing what I did, convincing yourself of something being wrong and it's not logical. I know it isn't. And you soon will too.

Kmj: I love your signature.

Would I have more symptoms if I had a brain tumor?

That's what my ent told mr when I was scared of a tumor. I can't tell you this answer cause every tumor is different and the size and location but I seriously do not think you have one. They are very rare. And I think what's happening to you is just anxiety. I think seeing your dr is your best bet.

And I saw you had Nuero exam. I passed mine too so that even makes it very unlikely.

I hope you're right, I think I would be having more symptoms or more severe seizures (if these are truly seizures) if I had a brain tumor. Maybe just epelipsy?

I think you probably would be having more if it was a tumor.
I don't think it's epilepsy. I looked up simple partial seizures and you have none of those symptoms. It did not speak of de ja vu. As I said, just go to your dr again and tell him or her your concerns.
