My son is 7 years old and he has had epilpesy since he was about 1 1/2. The doctor said he has Absent seziures and im wondering what the chance is that they could turn into grand mal seziures? he is on meds for them but they dont seem to be working now. when he first got them he would fall and hit his head on something and that stopped for awhile but now he is starting to almost fall again. i am going to make an appointment with his doc tomorrow to have him checked again.
