Yes: Hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations are relatively common in temporal lobe epilepsy. It comes as no big surprise to me that you would eventually be diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy and i'm pleased to hear that you're feeling better on the Lamictal . Take care and be well. Also, you might want to spend some time reading up on some famous historical figures with temporal lobe epilepsy, including dostoyevsky and the composer gustav holst.
