Temporal lobe dysfunction
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.
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.
