Unexplained memory disorder (P.S.)

Hi again,
(BTW this isn't directed solely at Frank)

If you look at the link
(sorry for the change of URL, I've changed ISP's)
it details what University and the types of test already been done,
etc, but no matter.

I have seen a neurologist, and a neuropsychiatrist
but have been seen at most twice, and no further visits are planned.
They do not know what's causing the memory disorder, and so nothing is

As my psychiatrist said, "sometimes people don't fit into any
category", and that I don't have a "mental illness",
the psychology researchers said "We are all scratching our heads,
no-one knows what's causing the problem".(after having feedback from
neurologists, psychoneurologists etc)
ANother said that "I'm been fobbed off, and basically being passed
around as a token gesture"
I am asking on this group, as things are not moving forward for me,
and I hoped that someone may have come across this before, or could
point me in the right direct etc. 
Its a long shot, but its better than not doing anything, I think many
would do the same in my situation, and I  do not post here regularly, 

This is my 2nd request. I have been struggling for the last 3 years,
to get my condition recognised, and have had to fight all along the
way to see any of the experts that I have, so I don't think this I can
be easily slotted into a new label of "internet Munchausen", but
stranger things happenend.
Maybe it's because I'm in the UK, so the NHS can't afford to do
further tests, or is it because there are no effective treatments for
my condition, or that the research into human memory impairments
haven't advanced much?
