any experience with petite mal epilepsy?

I am awaiting results of my 13 month old's over night EEG, her neurologist thinks she may have petite mal epilepsy because she has staring episodes. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Yes doctors suspected petit mal for my son due to eye rolling and staring episodes that we started to notice at 12 months old. He had an overnight EEG at 18 months old: all negative.

He was recently diagnosed with Asperger and it is now believed that his staring episodes are due to his Asperger, fairly common for this condition.
