Epilepsy

Temporal lobe dysfunction

08/21/2008

Question:

Dear Doctor, I am a 23 year old woman and have been diagnosed (through EEG`s and MRI`s) with Temporal Lobe Dysfunction. Could you provide me with general information about this disorder? All my symptoms sound far-fetched to family members who doesn`t understand it and I would like to give them something to read about it so that they can understand and support me. Thank you.

Answer:

There is no specific diagnosis called "temporal lobe dysfunction" and therefore I cannot specifically answer your question. You may wish to ask your healthcare provider what he or she means by this term.
