My son was not at home when he had the seizure he was at my in-laws. My son is 11 and I explained to him what happened at that he may never have another seizure again. I know it is hereditary because my uncle and cousin had seizures but they both outgrew them. We went to the ER the morning he had the seizure and his blood work came back normal. We are going to have an EEG done Tuesday. I have had several EEGS, all which came back normal. The only thing that ever came back abnormal was the pet scan I had done several years ago.
I had a grand mal seizure when I was six months old and never had another one, that was known of, until I was 16 or 17. (Was a senior in high school). I would have the grand mal seizures only at night and they were not that often. Now I have complex-partial seizures, in which I lose consciousness for 1-3 minutes. I am on Dilantin and Keppra, which I believe control the grand mal seizures but have not been successful in finding a medication to control the complex partial seizures. I am 35 and have not drove since I was expecting for my son who had the seizure.
Thanks. I feel better knowing that it may be ok for him to have acted like that. I have grand mal seizures also, but they are controlled with my medication. I was concerned because after a grand mal seizure I was wore out, felt like I was beat up for a day or two.View Thread
