Yes , it could have: There is really no way to know if those old symptoms your parents saw were indeed seizures. Even as experts, it is sometimes difficult for doctors to determine if some types of neurologic activity are seizures - that's what eeg's are for. If question as to whether you still have anything , a sleep study or sleep deprived eeg may provide you with answers.
