2 doctors agree
In brief: Maybe
Depends on the type of seizure.
Febrile seizures (seizures with fever) are only in children with age predominance 6 months - 5 years. Thee are some childhood epilepsies that one can outgrow. And there are some that are in childhood, disappear and reappear later in adulthood. If concerned talk to your physician

In brief: Unlikely
If you have gone more than 2 years without a seizure, the chances are low of recurrence, but not zero.
