I had encephalitis when I was four years old and never had any problems. Suddenly when I was 21 I was coming home from work and had several grand mal seizures. Since then I have seizures every two to three weeks and it's been ten years now. I have been on every anti epiliptic medication there is and about nine months ago stopped taking the medication and the seizure pattern stayed the same meaning that they are not epileptic seizures. When I was reading on encehpalitis I have a lot of the same symptoms, seizures, major mood swings, depression. Could I still have it?
