Hello this is Dr Salama MD,
Seizure disorder is quite common amongst children and fortunately it can be easily diagnosed and treated.
Since you have already completed an EEG and gotten the diagnosis, the next step is that the neurologist will likely place her on daily antiepileptic medication which can effectively manage her seizure activity.
Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
Yes, an abnormal EEG likely means that she has a seizure disorder since that's the only thing that it looks for.
Typically, antiepileptic medication is initiated after the second seizure or if she has a syndrome or lesion that puts her at high risk for seizure recurrence.
