Dr. Bennett Machanic answered
51 years experience Neurology
Needs HELP: Repetitive convulsions are dangerous, due to both brain damage, and risk to bodily harm in general. There is an underlying reason for him to have what could be full blown epilepsy, and the risk of permanent disability and/or death is real. He could even die in his sleep (sudep). He needs a full neurological evaluation asap.
