Memory Loss

From: Lynn


In 1995, I was misdiagnosed with a seizure disorder and placed on a anticonvulsant. In 2001 I was rediagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncopy as well as a vaso-vagal response (20+ a month). I now have a pacemaker and have not fainted since. I do, however have "spells" (the same symptoms that do not result in fainting). I had experienced some long-term memory retrieval and loss and some short-term memory retrieval and resently, loss. Is this normal? Perminent? Can I do anything besides modify my life (write EVERYTHING down...) Should I be worried?

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
