A 56-year-old male asked:
how common is it for someone to develop a seizure disorder without a family history of epilepsy or other cause such as brain injury?

Common: In my experience, epilepsy in young people and with generalized seizures is more apt to run in families, but a neurologist would be better qualified to answer this question. However there are many patients with various types of seizure disorders that don't run in families.
