Abnormal Electrical Activity

Having been diagnosed with Atypical Migranes (migraines), I had a twenty-four hour EEG (which was preceded by a sleep deprived EEG and a regular EEG) I am now told I have abnormal electrical activity in the left front temporal region of the brain.  However, I had no symptoms of any kind during these EEGs.  I am traveling and will not see my neurology group for two months.  Is it possible that I have had this condition my entire life--I am 67 years old?  Incidentally, I was prescribed 25 mg Topiramate for the migranes (migraines) and am still taking it.  Since I believe this electrical activity indicates seizures, would the fact that I was taking the Topiramate at the time of the various EEGs have prevented seizure symptoms.

Grateful for any help.
