Re: First seizure age 61

First of all, the previous poster said she 'may' have epilepsy. He didn't say she definitely has epilepsy. At this time, I have only been diagnosed with simple and complex partial seizures. I was 47 when I had my first ever seizure. Those are not the kind of episodes you describe, but it definitely sounds like a seizure. When having that type of seizure, loss of bladder control and defecation are common.

Don't assume the worst. Seizures are very scary, and can take awhile to diagnose and treat effectively. She definitely needs to see a neurologist asap to get the diagnosis/treatment process started.
