Re: short term memory ~ do you think it's the meds. or the actual epilepsy?
I've had it for 28 years and here's my experience:
VIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGEMy short term memory is almost totally gone and my recall isn't much better. It's caused problems with my job too but that's a whole other story. Besides this I have slurred speech and very poor gait and coordination(as well as several other side effects from the meds), people think I'm drunk. I've even been pulled over by the police as DUI until they saw my medic alert bracelet. Lots more to say but I don't want to bore you all. Randy
