Re: EEG "Normal" For 4-Year Old Son
I have had seizures since I was 2 years old. I am now 28 years old. I have only had 2 seizures in the last 10 years, but those 2 have been in the last year. One was "stressed induced" and one was induced by me taking demerol(it lowers the seizure threshhold).
Anyways, that all being said....I have had at least 10 EEGs and they have never been able to find anything abnormal on them. I am now a RN and am very interested in seizure activity, so I have been trying to read boards and websites. Just because the EEG is normal, does not mean that there will be no more seizures. It is positive in the the fact that there is no visible problems with the brain, but keep an eye out and let everyone know that your son has indeed had a seizure before.
I hope that this was a one time thing, but always be aware that this can happen again and its best to err on the side of safety.
