It is good you are going to see your dr. Can you write down a list of questions you want to ask so that you are sure to cover all your concerns? I don't know your situation but I have a son who has epilepsy and I would be glad to discuss anything you would like to know from his experience. He has had epilepsy for 18 years but he didn't have his first gran mal seizure until he was 19. He probably had it since birth but they were most likely absence seizures so no one noticed. He has not had a seizure in 6 years due to good control with three meds. Would be glad to talk with you.
