History and lab: Epilepsy is diagnosed by a history consistent with seizures as reported by the patient and preferably by observers for most seizures types. In some cases, confirmation may be necessary from testing such as eeg studies which can be routine or prolonged such as 24 to 72 hour ambulatory or video eeg when there is a question of non-epileptiform attacks. A MRI scan of the brain is also done.

3 things: You probably have benign eyelid myokymia which is hyperexcitable muscles in the eyelid. Triggers include lack of sleep, stress, and too much caffeine so avoidance of these triggers may help. Usually this condition improves on it's own but if it doesn't you may be a candidate for Botox injections.
