Hi Peridot21. I have temporal lobe seizures also. I didn't know for a long time I was having seizures but mainly had feelings of dizziness and headaches and deja vu which turned out to be seizures. I believe that a lot of partial seizures might go unnoticed. You might become more aware over time of your symptoms and what is actually a seizure. For example, I have random mood or sensory symptoms which seem to be partial seizures. I have become more aware of memory symptoms over time (perhaps they were creeping up for awhile and have just become more obvious). My neurologist says that it is difficult to tell whether memory problems are caused by the meds or the seizure symptoms, or both. For me I notice when my seizures become worse this worsens my memory and thinking skills. I was diagnosed a few years ago and feel as though I am still learning about this condition. I understand how difficult it is to adjust to this diagnosis. It's also very difficult for other people to understand and relate to. I would suggest asking your neurologist more questions about your diagnosis and also doing some research yourself. I hope you'll find some medications that help you.
