Hi there ...

She is a young female , with symptoms of Seizures and dr is unable to find reason .

In young females if no neurological cause or reason is found then two things should be ruled out first she should rule out the possibility of autoimmune disease like mixed connective tissue disorder , and second often cardiac rhythm abnormalities could be the reason .

I would like to suggest her to have her EKG / 24 Hour Holter monitoring .

Get her test for connective tissue ( Autoimmune disorder ) to check what is going wrong .

Last but not leat she should get EEG ( Electron encephalogram ).

Regards ***** ***** her test as I advised you .

Good luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
