Ive read comments on this forum for several months now about ppl. who wonder why they have seizure(s) and they don't show up on the EEG,CAT scan, MRI etc.
As some of us know (Mandi, Jen etc.) you can still have a seizure and not have it show up on the tests for various reasons.
My situation is different.
I have only had one major gran-mal seizure in 1979 but every year my EEG shows major seizure activity in the lower left tempral lobe, that is why my neouro. kept me on meds for that long, kind of like an insurance policy. (if I wasn't on the meds I would PROBABLY have a seizure) although I still get several petit-mals. The Doctor says that if I wasn't on the meds, those petit-mal seizures could be major gran-mal seizures.
Right now I guess my seizures are under control (b/c I haven't had any)
but what might have happened if I didn't take them?
I'm just telling you this b/c I persomaly find it strange that ppl are wondering why their seizures arn't showing up on the tests.
(sorry, I had to vent)
Diagnosed with epilepsy and ulcerative colitis in 1979,
Been on meds ever since.
