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.

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

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!!

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.
