I am a 31 year old female in hopes of finding out more information on encephalitis. I had it when I was about three or four years old and was very sick. About ten years ago I started having seizures, petite and grand mal, and have been having them ever since. I have been on every anti epiliptic medication there is and even considered having a vagul nerve stimulator implanted. I have been seeing neurologists and finally found one that I trust. Had several EEG's and MRI's and the only thing they found is extra electrical activity in the left side of my brain. I stopped taking epiliptic medication about nine months ago and my seizure pattern has stayed the same, every two to three weeks. She said since the pattern has not changed that they are not epiliptic seizures and now I am being referred to a neuro psychologist.

My main question is can the encephalitis I had when I was young be suddenly affecting me? Has anybody ever heard of this sort of thing happening.

Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
