    Seizures permanently having negative/permanent(?) affects on memory

    I could be wrong and spouting incredible amounts of nonsense here, but I've noticed that since I started having tonic-clonic seizures, my memory has been horrible. Well, a fair bet worse than usual. I remember reading something about memories being made by neural pathways (synapses?) in the...

    Memory loss, never happened before

    I've been noticing my short term memory has gotten really bad for the past week or so. There hasn't been any changes to my meds whatsoever either. I've been having a lot of auras, myclonic jerks (more than normal), and some staring spells but nothing out of the norm for me. No grand mals that...

    New Seizure

    I had a first seizure (tonic-clonic) this weekend (6/22/13) that required a little over a day of hospitalization and tests. I woke up on the 22nd feeling nauseous and with the deja vu feeling. Not long after getting out of bed I started vomiting blood and my father said I was acting agitated and...

    Have you suffered memory loss from taking Neurontin?

    I was at the age of 5 when I was diagnosed with seizures. It was always unclear as to exactly what was causing my seizures until about 6 years ago, which I found out was a Venous Angioma. Unfortunately it is in the left side of my brain and right behind my left eye. So it's inoperable or if I...
