My husband had what I believe to be a focal seizure two weeks

Resolved Question:

My husband had what I believe to be a focal seizure two weeks ago. His eyes were open but he did not respond to us at all. He has Parkinson's disease, could this be a result of this illness, and will he have more of them?

Expert:  Dr. Ed Wilfong replied 7 years ago.
It is possibly related to Parkinson's but also could be a seizure disorder. Without having a neurologist consult and examine him, there is no real way to advise you. It is not uncommon to have both.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
If this a focal seizure, how frequently do they occur and will they become more frequent?
Expert:  Dr. Ed Wilfong replied 7 years ago.
They vary in frequency. May have only one, may have every day. They can be controlled, but really need neurologist to tell.
