I had seizures for about 30 months until they were brought under control with Lamotrigine.
The problem is that the effects of the seizures and meds have all but destroyed my long term memory. My short term memory is so bad that I will ask someone the same question that they answered thirty minutes before.
This condition has already taken away my ability to participate in running my company.
Soon I will be basically unable to function as a member in my family.
My neurologist and neuropsychologist have told me that this condition will probably not change.
Has anyone on here had s similar condition and had any improvement?
I just heard from my neuropsychologist. The results of the testing were that my short term memory is bad and the probably a result of the seizures and Lamotrigine. He gave little hope for the improvement of the memory.
If your husband's seizures are under control, he may be better off. My seizures occurred over a two year period before finally being being brought under control. This was mainly due to not being sent to a neurologist by other doctors.
Give my best to your husband and hang in there like my.wife.has done.
I can certainly relate to your experience, except from the husband's side of the experience you are going through.
My seizures began about two and a half years ago. The first experience was forgetting my way home from work on a route I had done for over 10 years.
The emergency room staff had no clue as what was wrong. The next time I passed out at a gym and was taken to the emergency room. Once again the staff had no suggestion as to what was could be wrong.
My seizures began to happen more often and my primary physician referred me to a Neurologist. He prescribed Lam and I have one one seizure since then and that one was caused by not following his instructions exactly.
My wife has been driving me to work every day and any other place I need to g
My neurologist referred me to a neuropsychologist for testing. The results of that visit I will find out this week.
If the pros cannot find a solution to the memory problems (both short and long term), I will be forced to give up a 50 year career in a business I love.
Another thing that your husband and I have in common is that we both married amazing women. He and I are both very fortunate.
