What meds are you on? It is a proven fact that some anti-epilectic drugs can cause SHORT TERM memory loss but over the years, you start to remember things that you thought were lost forever.
TRIGGERS ~ There are many things that can "trigger" a seizure such as STRESS (that's the big one), certain smells, sounds, flashing lights, lack of sleep, head trauma, or combination of some of these together.
If you can figure out what your trigger(s) are, maybe you can illiminate it or avoid it.
Nibbor, I would definitely try to find another neurologist for a 2nd opinion. You may not be on the right meds or have the right diagnosis. Things to do if you have epilepsy are - keep yourself and especially your hands very clean. Getting sick and having a fever can metabolize you med faster and then you have no protection. It is very important to get enough sleep each night - at least 8 hrs. Things to avoid - anything with caffeine in it so no coffee! Also, no alcohol which can cause seizures. Try to avoid stressful situations and don't get too upset over something. The best advice I can give you is to try another dr. and to look around carefully for a neurologist who specializes in epilepsy. My son has this condition and he is very much under control and living a normal life thanks to an excellent neurologist. Please keep posting so we know how you are doing. Take care of yourself.
