Rare epilepsy can cause a variety of severe emotional and depressive symptoms

The book "Preventing Misdiagnosis of Women" reports on a case of a woman with severe personality and behavioral symptoms, and a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder. She had extreme symptoms such as depression, cyclic moods, relationship problems, and many other emotional and neurological symptoms. After years of unsuccessful treatment, she was finally diagnosed with the rare Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, a form of epilepsy without seizures. Treatment for that disorder was highly effective and changed her life. See Preventing Misdiagnosis of Women (by Klonoff and Landrine); see also temporal lobe epilepsy.
