If she has "found herself on the floor" before, not knowing why, THAT could be an indication it MIGHT be "drop seizures".
Didn't sound like there was a "recovery time" after it happened. By that I mean the seizure was followed by confusion, speech problems, vision problems (loss of bladder) to name a few of the post-seizure things that can happen in persons with epilepsy.
She has had these episode in the past. About 1-2 a year.
There was no recovery time. When she came to it, she was pretty normal. No confusion, no speech problems or anything. At NO point was there any convulsion.
My main question is can we rule out fainting (syncope) based on the fact that she walked and stared and pointed during the episode. Are these pretty certain diagnosing criteria for seizure.
