My 23 yr old son had a first seizure a month and a half ago eeg, mri, cats can all fine blood work fine why are chances he will not have another?
Get the crystal ball: How frightening for you and your son! but I am so happy to hear that the mri, ct, and blood work are normal; what a relief. Sometimes medications can induce seizures; i imagine this has been ruled out. While this is personal, i don't mind sharing that i had a single seizure while in residency training - back in l985. None since, and i'm a very busy, active physician. Good luck to you and your son. ...Read more

What kinds of questions should I ask after a diagnosis of seizure disorder? Had abnormal eeg-mri normal. Just have fainted easily all my life.
5 years ago i was diagnosed with epilepsy after 1 seizure(in a stressful situation) with an EEG test(+normal MRI results).could it be wrong/sth else?
My response: First, epilepsy means more than one seizure, and you had a solitary event. Second, the diagnosis was probably correct, and your EEG likely showed abnormal findings c/w a risk for further events. But if you have been stable for 5 yrs, seems worthwhile to repeat EEG, if you are on medicines and see if you could taper off. Discuss with local neurologist. ...Read more
Had a seizure had CT now they want me to have an MRI and EEG what could be wrong help can some one please answer
Time will tell: This is standard work up for seizure. Mri will look for an anatomic abnormality. The eeg will look for a functional abnormality ("misfiring brain cells"). Since they feel an MRI is necessary, tumor or bleed is unlikely. There's no way to tell what is wrong until all the testing is done. ...Read more
1st time seizure. Good mri, EEG was abnormal. Dr. Did not give details, but put on zonisamdine. prescription seems bad for many reasons. Male prone to infection & white cells high. Should more tests done?
Convulsion: With only a single seizure, normal mr you would have been fine. However if the eeg was abnormal then you are likely a candidate for medication. If you are concerned about the medication proscribed then i would speak further with the dispensing physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
