Why Would Someone Have Their First Seizure At The Age Of 68? What Is Going On?

My husband just had his first two seizures on June 20th and he is 65. The MRI shows signs of a possible small stroke which is what the doctor thinks is likely the cause of his seizures (grand mal).

So maybe those 2 incidents, one 40+yrs ago and one 50+yrs ago, may possibly be the culprit of your diagnosis. But the Epilepsy didn’t didn’t show itself until you were actually diagnosed.

No Randy not a particularly heavy drinker ! I was knocked out twice in my life! Once at school when a strip light fell from the ceiling some 40 ft high 50+ years ago and the other was when I was a solitary police officer driving alone into a massive street brawl where I was knocked out with my head and ribs being used as a football !! The medics 40 years ago after x-rays , which I think was the only diagnostic tool at there disposal here in the wilds of Caledonia!! But all of the scans ct and mri seemed clear so I’m no further forward mate🤔

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , good question, I have never heard of being diagnosed from drinking a few pints. Were you very drunk maybe? Did possibly get in a brawl or maybe you hit your head ? Many other possible scenarios, that are running through my head.

My question is do you remember everything you did ? Or did you get drunk or black out?
