I also have tempral lobe epilepsy and have noticed that both conditions (EP & bipolar) can have a lot of the same symptoms, especially memory loss. (poor gait & co-ordination is mainly from the meds) I think it's a great idea that you are writing down your concerns for your Doc. to see.
I totally agree with Emira and odettesmom with each of their previous posts.
I have an 18 yr. old son that was dx'd with bipolar/manic depression at age 12 and a lot of his symptoms seem the same, especially PARANOIA.
My wife has chronic pain, son has bipolar and I have epilepsy. We're all a bunch of sickies and that gets very depressing but I always find someone worse.
Good luck at the Docs. and I hope they can straighten everything out.
