This is Dr. David

there is a small chance that the trauma to the mother at 6 months could have caused the child to be having seizures now

however, there are children who have epilepsy seizure disorder who have no lesions in the brain who have seizures without ever having had trauma in the womb while in the mother

I suspect he has epilepsy seizure disorder of the brain. I bet he has to take anti-seizure medications everyday, correct?

has he been diagnosed as having epilepsy?
