What did EEG SHOW: Was the eeg abnormal or normal.That was 14 years ago.Have you had any more seizures etc, since then.Have you had any teasts done since then, have you been on any medications etc. Phenobarb is not used for sleep for long time, and it does not cause seizures, on the other hand it is used to control seizures.

Chill out: You have become frightened by something long past. You need to discuss this with a good doctor and get it out of your mind. Get on with your life in a normal and appropriate manner.
