Can A Person Really Be Seizure Free

Can A Person Really Be Seizure Free

I hear many people say they are or have been seizure free or months or years, even myself. Is there really such a thing being that there are so many types of seizures. Does any one know if they have been treated for one type and picked up another, or, is everyone being truthful as not to loose certain privileges "jobs, drivers licenses, relationships, etc.".

I don't know about having 3 types of seizures, but it sounds like you have some type of partial seizures.

After reading some things on here I'm starting to think I may have 3 seizure types as I hear people at times but can't respond to them and I also find myself in places and don't know how I got there. It's scary at times

I truthfully remained seizure free for nearly ten years. I had instances of my EEGs coming back perfectly normal even.

With all of that, my epileptologist told me that with my form of epilepsy it was likely for it to practically disappear in my 20s and come roaring back in my 30s. That is precisely what happened. I never lied or even had instances that may have been other types of seizures. I'm incredibly paranoid about driving and seizures so lying about it was something that would never cross my mind. But somehow, I was able to stay free for my twenties.

to answer your question, yes it is possible to be seizure free. as a child I had seizures and had to take medication. I no longer have to take medication and don't have seizures, but I am also aware of what happens when a seizure comes on so I can try to avoid the situation., And its very important you tell your doctor everything, unless you do, they can't help you completely
