siezures and concentration


I would like to hear from anyone who has been a long term GM sufferer, who believes this to have affected concentration. I have had several years now of frequent GMs (1 a week), and have the impression that my concentration has suffered. Have others had luck countering this with specific activities, methods? Also, anyone who has then gotten control of their siezures, has this improved your concentration once again, so that you have regained some lost ground?

Re: siezures and concentration

I don't have grand mals, but complex partials; sounds like a couple did generalize somewhat (like one sided), and have had prolonged complex partials witnessed at work while waiting for the ambulance. Between that, multiple concussions, and medications, my concentration stinks. My memory is the pits. Don't always 'snap to' what season it is without really thinking about it. Reading is hard- retain a little, but not like I used to (used to read 3-5 paperbacks a week).

I think some is from seizures chewing up a few brain cells (fortunately we have spares) and medications for me.....
