| | Epilepsy and memory loss
I have cyclothymia and was diagnosed with epilepsy 2 years ago after having a mini stroke. I am currently taking Vaimpat and Lamictal to deal with the seizures, but have in the past taken carbemazapine and progabalin both of which weren't as effective as my current meds.
I still have seizures and can lose movement in my arms and legs, and can also lose my memory (sometimes forgetting who I am completely) and this usually lasts up to 2 days.
When this happens I have to have time off work, and although I have been assured by my employers that they understand I get the impression that they are becoming weary of it.
I am concerned about my memory losses as it means I can lose days at a time, and have been trold by my doctor and neurologist that is is unusual for this to happen. Has anyone else had this problem, and has anyone got any advice?
