Memory loss with Hemiplegic Migraines

My wife has HM and is having migraine attacks 7 to 8 times each day. Sometimes these attacks cause memory loss. She can't remember what we watched on TV the night before or several days before. She sometimes doesn't people who have been around her on a daily basis. On a recent ER visit, I ask the doctor about this. He said that the memory loss is not caused by the migraine, but offered no advice on what to do. What kind of doctor does she need to see to have this checked out? need help.

I had same problems, Only my cluster headackes were so severe, esp. when i was sleeping. That doctor needs to get a degree in neurology. Does she have swelling of her ankles? Ur wife might be suffering from possible blood clots to brain anurisms. I am no doctor, but  since my last attacks my short term memory is shot. Do find a good neurolist, & hopefully they will give her a cat scan with contrast. I wish u n ur wife the best!
