Can Person Have Seizures Without It Showing Up On A Longterm Eeg Test?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Mine don't, either. Where are yours coming from? I was told mine could be coming from too deep in the frontal temporal lobe to show up on an EEG.

Can You Set Up A New Prorogram

Can You Set Up A New Prorogram

I have an idea for a new program called Epilepsy Dating. Why not create a program so single epileptic members can meet others? They can search to meet a person of the same or oposite sex, provide a profile , photo and message. Many epileptic members have a hard time living alone.
