Is this TGA or ?

When I was around 5 or 6 I was sleepwalking pretty frequently. I stopped sleepwalking around 8. Fast forward to 5yrs ago (I'm 59). I went into my house to get something to drink. I then went outside. That was the last thing I remembered until I woke up the next morning. My wife said we had fun with the grandchildren and had a bonfire. She said it was about 3 or 4 hours from the time I went outside until we went to bed. She has pictures from that night that show me having a fun time with everyone. She said I seemed pretty normal. I do not remember anything except walking outside that night and waking up the next morning. That is when I started to have nights of sleepwalking again. Lots of nights where my wife says we have conversations in bed but I do not remember anything. A few days ago she said we went to bed at our normal time (10pm) and we had wonderful sex (her words).....I have no memory of that happening. That made me sad. I recently have been diagnosed with epilepsy. Had my first seizure last Sept. I do not know if they are related. It seems the sleepwalking/loss of memory has been getting more frequent. Is this serious or should I not be worried?

Wow, that's kind of freaky.  Has your doctor told you about post ictal confusion which can seem like short term memory loss.  Is there a possibility you had a seizure earlier in the evening of the night you can't remember resulting in your inability to really remember events of that night?  I'd guess something like that.  But I would talk to your neurologist.

No seizure that day. Everything was normal, according to my wife. I did not have any post ictal until after my tonic-clonic seizure last September.
