I know I'm not the original poster, but I have some input for you on this. In personal experience I started off at age 12 or so with very intermittent simple-partial seizures. I'd only get them once in a while, and they were very minor. They actually went away for a couple years, and then they came back again and they were worse in intensity and more frequent. They kept getting gradually worse until, when I was 18, I had a grand mal seizure. I went on meds after this, but until my meds were regulated to the point where they are now, they kept spreading to affect different areas of my body (at first they only affected my leg and shoulder on my right side, but they started spreading to my wrist, forearm, toes, fingers, neck, and side on my right side) before my meds seemed to get them mostly under control to where they have a regular pattern now (catamenial- they occur with different stages of my monthly cycle) and have stopped spreading to different parts of my body.
All cases are different, but it is possible for seizures to keep getting worse until they are under control with the right meds.
