| | Long term memory problems
Just wanted to know if anyone has a particular problem with their long term memory? I guess for me that would be any information over say 90 days old. I'm sure every one has read or heard about all the problems with memory that the condition and the AEDs can cause, but from what I have researched the bigger problem seems to be short term memory.
As a 40+ male with TLE (uncontrolled) that has been swallowing Dilantin pills for almost 20 years, Ive watched memories of my youth, and later years slowly fade to the point that I have very little left to recall. My Dr cannot provide any answer other than that it probably is caused by a combination of the continuing seizures and drugs.
No other drugs have helped much and Im now in the pipline for a lobectomy, where wallah! there is a risk of more memory loss. I once read that a personality is based on their past experiences. What kind of personality does one have, who has NO past experiences?
Any coments welcome, if not, thanks for reading.
