I'm dyslexic/dyspraxic and have always suffered. But despite this I managed to do well in my GCSEs, A-levels and even got a Degree
When I was in my teens I was also diagnosed with epilepsy and placed on medication, like most epileptic medication it often causes drowsiness.
I have found that in the last 10 years my memory has got worse, I spoke to my doctor who simply told me that dyslexia cannot get worse, your born with it and it simply stays the same throughout your life
But my worry is that my dyslexia combined with the drowsiness caused by the medication is making my brain work overtime causing my memory issues. Do you think this could have caused my memory problems? It's a bit of a cliché but I simply cannot remember my memory being this bad in the past and don't know how I could have got through my degree with it being this bad?
Anybody had similar experiences?
