I was diagnosis with jme at 22. I read it can be genetic but I have no family history of seizures. I now have a son, 9 mo. What are the chances of him getting jme?

About 7 percent of families may have a genetic propensity to develop jme.
Symptoms usually develop around puberty.They do not cause an mental deficit and are controlled with medication.
