So, I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I wanted to get some information on short term memory loss. By short term I mean very short term. Specifically in the 15~30minute range. I have these quite often. I'm not sure why or how I get them. They appear randomly at any given moment; although there were some special cases.
A special case in which it happens often is when I do any type of physical exercise(ie. run, play sports, etc.). The biggest side-effect would be panic. I don't really know what I am doing and this causes me to feel very uncomfortable. For sports, if I'm on a team I would completely forget what position I'm in, who I'm supposed to guard, who's on my team etc...This happens often even when I'm not physically exercising.
Nothing severe happens when I get these but they are extremely uncomfortable as I can't really answer questions or do anything that requires comprehensive thinking. For example(this has happened more than once), I was taking a test and I had it and sat there looking at the test not knowing what to do for about 15~20 minutes; it was a math test.
In other cases, I usually just walk to the bathroom if it happens at my home. I sit in the bathroom trying to remember what I was doing. I am even confused as where my bathroom is in a house that I've lived in for over 9 years. These happen I would say at least twice a month, sometimes once(but that is very rare)
I don't know if the following information is relevant but this has been happening since I've had my first seizure(approximately 8th grade, so around 13 yrs old). I am currently 19 and it still is happening.
If anyone has any reason, similar experience or help...I would greatly appreciate it. Sorry, it's kind of a long question...look forward to hearing from you all.
