20 year old had first grand mal seizure 3 months ago. Eeg was done this week and showed spike & wave discharges during light sleep. Is this epilepsy?
Complex issue: Epilepsy by definition is more than one seizure, and predicts future episodes if not controlled. Statistically, the risk of a future seizure within one year is 60%. The eeg is consistent with risk of future seizures, and i would therefore recommend usage of anti-epileptic meds, and no driving, activities at heights, use of power equipment until stable for at least 6 months. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
