My Epilepsy seems to be under control somewhat, but my short term memory is pretty much gone. When I do have a seizure, I can't remember anything from the point the seizure starts, and after I recover from the postictal stage. I had a seizure in the car when my wife and I went to the store the other day. After I recover from the posictal phase, I have trouble remembering things.
I don't remember practically anything after I recovered. I don't remember driving to the store, getting out of the car, or very little of the shopping we did. What I do remember is seeing a woman I've known for years and talking to her. After we finished our conversation and walked away, I asked my wife who she was.
My memory loss has gotten worse, even when I haven't had a seizure. My neurologist said my memory may or may not come back after time. Plus, the medication I am on causes memory loss as well. I am very concerned about this. Sometimes I can't remember what I've done in the house.
The other night I told my wife that I needed to do one of the chores around the house, she told me that I had already done it. I am very afraid that I am will get dementia, or heaven forbid, Alzheimer's. Anyone have any advice ?
