Seizures
4 years ago I started having both Grand Mal and Petite Mal seizures, followed by weakness on the right side of my body. EEGs (4 of them) showed that I do not have epilepsy. A MRI showed that there was changes in my white matter in my left temporal lobe that hinted towards a stroke but the doctors concluded that it wasn't strokes. Then 2 years ago the seizures went away so the doctors stopped trying to diagnose me. Within the last 2 months the seizures have returned with other symptoms such as being very emotional, having trouble speaking, dizziness, vertigo and having problems focusing. Because the seizures went away once before, my doctor isn't trying to diagnose me (I come form a small town with few doctors). I am very worried as to what is wrong with me since I was recently told that I am showing the symptoms of a brain tumour.

White matter changes are so unspecific... anything from migraines to MS and other things are possible as well.

Now that there are other symptoms - have they run another scan? More tests?
