December last year I suddenly got problems tolerating bright lights, short memory blackouts, like when I was about to do something it felt like the next moment I could not remember for a second. Brain fog, and I started having difficulties concentrating on what I was doing. Now 9 month later things have not improved at all. There are moments when I feel like my concentration is better, that could be anytime during the day but then it gets worse again. I had a few days when I did not feel really bad, almost no brain fog or probelms concentrating, still slight memory problems but this got worse now, a lot worse then when it all started. At time I have word finding problems, a burning in at the side of my head or pressure at different spots of my skull. Had this checked out by several ENTs but they could not find anything. I have to say at night when I`m in bed or when I sleep I feel at ease and don`t notice any real problems but as soon as I get up in the morning 1o minutes in it all hits me again. I had several similar but not as pronounced periods like this before. The first one in 1999 after an argument with my wife to be. Got terrible lightheadedness, headaches etc. They lastet until I got a proper neurologist to confirm that nothing is wrong. So a good 4 month. Then in 2005 I suddenly got a seizure while taking a shower at home, started as a cramp in my right hand and then my hole right side started shaking and I passed out. Brain imiging showed nothing suspicious. In 2007 I got the same lighthradedness, brain fog and my first very short periods of memory problems. Like for a fraction of a second having trouble recalling what you were about to do. Again we went for an MRI of the brain and nothing could be found. Probelms went away. Then in 2013 same issues again but slightly more pronounced. Again doctor check up with MRI of the brain revealed nothing and after a while it went back to normal. From 2012 on I started getting though pressure pain at different spot of my head that went from one place to another. Mainly at the front, over the eyes, around the temples, sometimes at the top of the head. That went on and is still happening. As for now, my mental confusion is getting worse, at times I find it difficult being in new places and finding my way around. Slipping in and out of periods on focus. The right side of my head burns especially around the joint of the jaw. Memory is troublesome at times. I feel like I`m loosing it. The amount of spelling mistakes I`ve made while writting this is terrible. My age 44
