That was 16 mths ago. A week and a half ago I exoerienced 2 more seizures and was initially feeling hot flashes with nausea. I think it is associated with hormonal changes - what type of doctor do I need to see in order to test for this. The EEG I had taken 16 mths ago showed nothing abnormal and they also did a 24 hr EEG 3 weeks after my first seizure. Normal CT, MRI and spinal tap performed same day as 1st seizure were all normal. No EEG was performed this time and ct scan was normal. It is driving me crazy thinking it could happen again and not knowing if there is anything I can do about it. They have put me on keppra twice a day I guess as their solution.
