Hallo Bess
The symptoms you have could be due to nerve injury when the electrical current went through your body. Some patients can develop leaking of air into the chest cavity after a lightening strike, so if you feel short of breath, maybe ask your GP to just take a chest xray too. The memory loss and headache symptoms are known side effects of a lightening strike but you should see a neurologist if it does not gradually improve.
