thanx for replying its a bit all over the place but i will try.

firstly i am 22yrs old been epileptic since i was about 6 weeks old which i have coped with but over about  the last 10yrs or so i have been getting what i call sleeping episodes where i get disturbed vision and loose the use of my left side of my body then i fall into a deep sleep from about 20 mins too several hours and the affects of this can last for days had eeg and mri about 4yrs ago they were negative and they were not like the recent ones but about 2 -3 years ago i suffered what the hospital said was a virus whereas i felt a sharp blow to the head that equaled being hit with a bat it left my head in severe pain and i could not open my eyes to the light they tested me for meningitis but there were not reasons for the attack i had, hense virus.at the moment i still get eye disturbances i had my eyes tested in every way there is not anything wrong with my vision so i assume the later results are the cause but i would like a little more input on my problem as i see that frontal lobe loss can cause dementia is this possible and what can i do to prevent it

It is difficult to comment without knowing your complete medical history and looking at the test reports. The report reflects loss of brain tissue in the frontal region along with the cerebellum. Scatty results on EEG indicate minor changes in the EEG which may or may not indicate seizures.
