Agraphia and Anomia Resulting from Epilepsy

Posted by 12271997 @12271997, Jun 7, 2018

They both can happen as a result of epilepsy. Agraphia is problems writing what you want to say you could write something else. Anomia is problems speaking because you can’t find the word you want to use. I use synonyms and spell check There are varying degrees some worse than others. One question I have is are they like altheimers and dementia where they progress? My seizures came from a lesion on left temporal lobe. The agraphia and anomia come from the focal area but they still are affected. I’m only 43. Is anyone else going through this condition. One website I’ve found helpful is WebMD.com/agraphia and agraphia.com

I have been approved for 6 1 hr therapies with the speech pathologist. I have cigna insurance. I won't be able to start until sometime in Aug so we'll see how it goes

yes I have this condition I try to speak and sometimes I cannot think of the right word, when I speak I am thinking of the right word and the wrong word comes out. When I am typing I can correct the words online. sometimes I use a different word since I cannot speak the word in the right manner. I would like to speak about Nero Feed Back the doctor gave me a prescription for it in order to help my psycho systematic Seizures maybe that will help with my Aphasia and agraphia these conditions are very frustrating just like not remembering what you just did. I am 60 although I look like I am in my 40's so I am going to bring this up to my doctor. I have found at UC Davis if we see a Nero Surgeon they just want to present surgery or pills this doctor didn't give me a chance to speak about these conditions we are focusing on today

Hi, @12271997 – thinking of you today and wondering how your therapy sessions with the speech pathologist went?
