    I had petit mal seisures as a child, just the ones where you zone out and your head goes down, I had one grand mal seisure, this was around 3 - 5 years of age, it was diagnosed as infantile epilepsy, and the seisures stopped, never to be seen again, although the doc did war that I could possibly get them back as a teenager, it never happened though.

    Thanks ladies.
    Can I ask...is there something that triggers your seizures? Especially grand mal seizures.

    This is really interesting to me, as I swear my daughter was getting these (zone out, unresponsive) some research led me to believe she was having absent seizures and just as I was about to mention it to DH or a Dr I haven't witnessed it again ...

    I can't really answer that, as I only had one, I was sent to have a brain scan though, and they said it was just because my brain was growing 'too fast' or something like that - this was over 30 years ago now, I'm just remembering what Mum told me at the time!!

    How old is your child?

    @MummaOJ it could well be, and I think if I'd just had the little ones, my parents would not have worried, but I had the nasty one, where I was found lying on the ground rigid and shaking, making funny noises (so my sister said) and then my Mum tried to put her finger in my mouth to stop me swallowing my tongue, and had to ride in the ambulance with me, with her finger in my mouth, as I clamped down, and wouldn't let her finger go lol. Poor Mum!!

    Triggers for me is food, lack of sleep and it can be lights etc for others.

    My child doesn't have Epiliepsy. He's had 2 grand mal seizures though and I'm just researching to see what might have caused them. He's 2. The doctor thinks it might have been just a virus, but I'm reluctant to call it that. There was no temperature or any other problems. He's a well boy usually.

    Thanks for your help. He was sleep deprived at the time of his first seizure. It is good to know that it might be important for him to get lots of rest.
