What your describing is normal for a temporal type problem. Here is an article that easily explains the functions of this lobe. "1) disturbance of auditory sensation and perception, 2) disturbance of selective attention of auditory and visual input, 3) disorders of visual perception, 4) impaired organization and categorization of verbal material, 5) disturbance of language comprehension, 6) impaired long-term memory, 7) altered personality and affective behavior, 8) altered sexual behavior." Some of them might be more prevelant then others while some might not be applicable at all. What type of medicines is she on now?
rispedal, clonadine, hydroxyzine, DDAVP, Singular, lamictal, melatonin XR,
She has been on abilify, adderal, ridaline, concerta, stratera, tegratol, paxil, zoloft, welbutrin, and a bunch of others over the years. She's been medicated since she was 4. That's how we found the malformation. The concerta stimulated it and caused the seizures. We did an EEG, it came back abnormal, did an MRI and BAM, there it was. We just did a follow up MRI a few weeks ago and it is still there and hasn't changed. not bigger, not smaller, just there and no one can tell me anything about it.
Have you been on the Angioma Alliance website? It is a website dedicated to people with cavernous malformations. I am 31 and just had mine removed last December, it was on my right frontal lobe. There is a lot of information on the site. www.angiomaalliance.org as well as a great support forum. If you have any questions please let me know
