You also have to understand the severity and what a report actually means. For example, migraine and seizure sufferers sometimes experience an "aura" before a migraine or seizure. This can include "hallucinations," such as the taste of metal or alcohol in your mouth. The word "hallucinations" sounds like a terrifying side effect to have, but most likely it's not like you're going on a full on vision trip and interacting with dead family members--it might just mean you smell rose petals or chocolate for an hour after the pill kicks in.
As far as the people who say everyone would know about this if I truly had this problem, it's simply not true. The media had no interest in picking this up, I wrote to all of the politicians in my state (California) and only got generic template responses, I tell everyone I meet, but the information just doesn't spread. I'm not looking for handouts, to push some agenda, or anything. I just want to be able to see in my house after dark.
