Ask a neurologist: Epilepsy (recurrent unprovoked seizures) is typically not something that would start in a 40 year old and be generalized at onset. (typically if you start having seizures at this age there is a cause other than genetics like a recent history of head trauma or stroke that would produce seizures that may become generalized after first starting in a specific location in the cerebral cortex).
