Can Somebody Tell Me What's Going On?

Last June I had two Grand-mal seizures, which I believe were brought on by a stroke. Although I have had seizures all my life (trance-like states). Recently, I had 3 petit-mal seizures one after the other, while I was in my PCP's office, and was taken to the ER by ambulance. I was admitted for three days, for observation. Upon discharge and being told to see my neurologist, the attending dr. said he believed I was having "suedo-seizures", and they were not equiped to deal with this kind of problem, so please don't come back to the hospital unless I am having Grand-mals. I am confused. If my PCP felt it necessary for me to go there and issue a direct admission, why are they telling me not to return, and what are seudo-seizures? Any help?
