Post Staring episodes/spells

Is there anyone who can suggest a code for staring episodes/staring spells? The doctor reports that she doesn't believe that they are seizures because the patient remembers things that happen during the spells.

Maybe try 780.02 - Transient alteration of awareness. Hope this helps!
