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.
