The patient may have weakness, numbness and unusual smells or tastes. Sometimes, there is twitching of the muscles or limbs, head turning from side to side, paralysis, sight changes or vertigo. Complex partial seizures occur in the temporal lobe and consciousness is altered. The patient usually has aaa change in their ability to interact with their environment and may exhibit automatic behaviors such as walking in aaa circle, sitting and standing, or smacking their lips.
