Unexplained seizures, not seizures, but what then?
My grandmother is an 84 year old, 130 lbs, with a history of unexplained "episodes".  During these episodes she blacks out, enters a delerium during which time she mumbles incoherently, drools, cries and moans in pain, throws up, has uncontrolable bowel movements, loses control of her bladder, and has small, rather painless muscle spasms. Also, he face and jaw go slack, and I saw her once make sucking movements with her lips, as if drinking from a baby bottle. She moans in pain, but when asked where it hurts, she cannot tell us where she hurts, or if she is feeling any pain.  She has had these episodes since age 16 (1938ish).  Now they are more pronounced.  What are some things this can be?  We have had 2, 48 hour long EEG tests, and a 3 hour EEG in the past 3 months, and the doctors do not think she is having seizures because of these tests.  What questions should I be asking the doctors?  What might you want someone to look for while caring for this person?  (i.e., should I keep track of how much water she drinks, what she is doing before these episodes occur, etc.)  What the heck is going on with my grandma?
