I took this question as survival age. My aunt is in her 70’s now but has been epileptic her entire life.

I am only 67 and have had it all my life, with it getting worse, but in much better shape than most people that are just a small fraction my age.

I believe that you can probably be diagnosed with epilepsy at any point in your life because if you are delt with a life changing event that you might be diagnostic you with epilepsy

I dont think there is any age limit in epilepsy, ive looked after patients with epilepsy in their 70s and 80s at work before
