Hello last year I was diagnosed with vasa vagal syncope which I now take a tablet for to reduce the events and it works as I have not had a a episode for a year. However after a year of being free from any events I had a seizure the other day which lasted 5 minutes. I first went rigid and then my arms and legs started convulsing my eyes where open but we're rolled back into my head. My mouth was also slightly open with saliva coming out. Throughout the seizure and afterwards I did not bite my tongue or become incontinent. The limbs where also moving together. I was still convulsing when the paramedics arrived but then stopped shortly after spontaneously.
I was referred to a neurologist to see if I had epilepsy and I had a standard EEG, sleep deprived EEG and a brain MRI which all came back normal. I am worried as the other day I had another seizure the same as the one described above. I was wondering if any has any experiance with being diagnosed with epilepsy just by a description of the seizure? And how common is it to be diagnosed by description? Any help will be appreciated
