: : Is it common to get epilepsy during the teenage years? A friend of mine has slight dizziness and minor seizures occasionally. She never has had this as a child and the seizures don't seem severe enough to be epileptic. Could I be wrong???
: Is this a guy or girl?
: If a girl it could possibly be catamenial seizures which are related to hormone levels.
Thanks for you reply. It's a girl and she is around the age of puberty. What are catamenial seizures? The main reason I am doubting this is epilepsy is because she was diagnosed with subjective symptoms(her brain waves were tested and reported negative as well). The doctors gave her Tegretol which from what I understand can cause seizures itself especially if she is taking it for no real reason. Do you know anything about Tegretol?
