trying to dianose what happened to my boyfriend.

My boyfriend had 2 seizures that where founded in the eeg the doctors did when I took him to the hospital the first seizure or episode he had lasted 15 min and he was sleeping both times when he had the seizure, He was not shaking violently and he was not stiffened up he was shaking and very delusional he did not now who I was and was pushing me around he acted like he was going to get sick i put him on his side right away when he looked at me it was like he was looking right threw me he grabbed a lighter and tried to start a bag on fire but I took it out of his hand. I wasz on the phone with 911 the first seizure cause it had lasted so long I have seen at least 8 seizures in my life and my boyfriends was not like any I have ever seen I had had to leave my boyfriend to let the first responders in and when i came back up he was boxing the air then tried to get up but was to wobbly to get up the hopelessness in his eye was so sad. He then grabbed the pillow i used to put under his head and started thrusting it the first responder had to ask him to stop during this whole time he did into say a word then then took him the the er. they ran a cat scan and blood work which all came back clear my boyfriend had a terrible head ace on his forehead like pressure. they gave him a tylanal . And sent use home alll my boyfriend wanted to do was go back to sleep cause his head was hurting so bad 3 hours later he sat up in bed and I starting asking him questions he should now and got no response so I helped him off the bed and onto the floor he then started poking me and saying 123456 and then started looking threw bags and then I continued to ask him questions he then said my name so i was re leaved this episode/ seizure lasted 2-3 min and his body was hot and sweaty so I called the er and they told me to come back so I got him dressed and ran him back they then did urine testing and a spinal tap which came back okay they are continuing to look at the fluid as time goes on they decided to keep use over night and ran a MRA and eeg the eeg found ab normal brain waves in the front left temple and they tried keppra 500 2 times a day but my boyfriend was having to many side affected so then they put him on zonisamide 100mg 2 at night he started with 1 at night for 3 days then uped it to 2. I just don't think that it was just seizures cause the way he acted during the first seizure he has not family history of seizures. If you have any suggestions on what we may be facing would be greatly appreciated. And when they sent use home they said he was non epileptic. And his blood work and urine all came back clear. Jackie

People have seizures for many different reasons. I would just keep asking his doctor questions. I hope it all gets worked out soon.

I have heard of non epileptic seizures, there is a group on facebook that I've come across which may be able to give you more info.  But like the previous post - there can be many reason's - hassle the doctor.   Good luck
