I have a 2 and a half year old and he was diagnosed with febrile seizures at 15months old. He continues to have them he seen the neurologist for the first time this past week and he said there is nothing more he can do for him. he is currently off all meds. I would like another opinion on this situation. I am his mom and I had the same type of seizures till I was 14 years of age. please desprate in mich.
I think febrile seizures do sometimes run in families. I also think I have read those prone to febrile seizures have a higher chance of developing non-febrile seizures.
Do the seizures only occur with fevers?
