Hi, I don't have a lot of knowledge about epilepsy except I think a friend of mine has this and he is refusing to go to a doctor because he is self-employed and must drive for his job. He thinks they will take his license away if he goes to a doctor for this.
Any advice? He has had four seizures that I know of (0ver a period of 4-5 years maybe). I can't remember the name exactly but something partial I believe, not a grand mal, but definitely a loss of consciousness for 30-60 seconds maybe. I found a website that described what he does and it fit perfectly. I am worried about him driving but he says he "always has advance notice" and that if he's driving he would have enough time to pull over?
Can anyone address this issue? Someone else told him that one seizure is enough to yank his license. Is it possible that he always knows when one is coming on? Thanks! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
