Before your medical visit, write down any questions you have. If possible, write down everything you remember about what brings on your seizures, and also be prepared to discuss your medical history, including any past injuries.
Questions your neurologist may ask include:
- Did you have any complications at birth?
- Have you ever had any head injuries?
- Did you ever have any seizures with a high fever when you were a child?
- Does anyone else in your family have seizures?
Epilepsy can be a complicated condition and you need to learn as much as you can to achieve seizure freedom; so make sure you ask questions. Together with your neurologist or epileptologist, you can make the best decision for your health.
