Re: New to this board and have a seizure question

Whew! You have a lot going on, poor thing. It must be so frustrating.
I'm not a doctor, and it sounds like you've seen the proper ones based on your symptons. Remember, a normal EEG doesn't show whether or not you have Epilepsy. Keep a journal and jot down anytime you feel "funky." JOurnals help docs immensly.
Due to your family history w/the heart, it can't hurt to have it checked, an echo cardiogram or something.
Perhaps it's something as simple as exhaustion? Do you have a high-pressure job? I know before my tonic-clonic (grand mal) seizure, I was under trendous stress, trying to sell my house...etc. Felt "funny" dizzy and confused most days. But sometimes that just happens.
If it were me, I would see a cardologist first thing. This is just my opinion.
I wish you the best!
I have adult-onset epilepsy. I am here to answer any questions, offer hugs or whatever you need to the best of my disability.
