I have had 2 seizures where I go stiff then start shaking the first one lasted 5 minutes and the second lasted 1 minute including the stiffness. These seizure happened 6 months between each other. During the second seizure I bite the side of tongue but in the first seizure I didn't bite my tongue or become incontinent. The doctor said by the description of the second seizure he thinks it was caused by abnormal electrical impulses (so epilepsy) .
He said he doesn't want to start me on anti epileptics until I have a diagnosis but I have had a standard EEG,sleep deprived EEG and a MRI on the brain all of which can back normal. Can the doctor still prescribe anti epileptics even though the tests were normal ? Do doctor usually prescribe even though the tests were normal ? Also do seizures usually increase in frequency after the second seizure?
My medical history is vasa vasa syncope well controlled by fludrocortisone I have had this condition for 2 years
