i think the family has seizures (also known as genetic seizures). my family has genetic celiac disease (attack the weakest link if i eat grains). it is stupid but the drs wont do anything to your girl if you have your 1st seizure. something about about a one seizure is a fluke.
your sons headache is a tricky one. it maybe the meds or it maybe a seizure. if you have a 'off and on' headache, you a have seizures. also your son has black outs. those blackouts maybe a grand mals (tonic clonic).

Headaches, and blackouts are a forms of seizures. I too have blackouts and blurry vision.

If your Daughter goes though another seizure. You should make another appt. and get her tested .
