In brief: Not generally

The highest risk for epilepsy is in children and the elderly, the 2 peaks in life where seizures occur more often.
But epilepsy is more common than we think. The chances of epilepsy in a healthy woman in her 30's is low. Some seizures run in families, but those would likely have occurred by now.

In brief: Epilepsy

It depends on your family hx.
You can have seizure if you developed brain tumor, stroke, headinjury.
