I am currently awaiting a week of eeg ambulatory monitoring.
A few months ago I started waking with a severe unexplainable smell that lasted seconds and then on being fully awake I lose all recent memory. Still know who I am and where I am but not happened within the last few days and weeks. This lasts for 10-15 minutes then gradually all is fine. This occurred every two weeks but now it is once a week.
Neurologist does think it is some form of epilepsy that occurs before, during or after sleep and I am having eeg monitoring in a months time.
I seriously think it is transient epileptic amnesia from what I have read. Has anyone else have experience of this.
