I am no doctor but I have had Epilepsy for 37 yrs. And I am here to tell you that even though your daughter passed all the doctors (co-ordination and balance) tests, it is still possible that she could have this. I can pass the tests given by my neurologist, accept of course the EEG. You cant pass an EEG when you have Epilepsy. Usually after an episode of a Grand Mal Seizure the person will go into a sleep like state for several hours.If this doctor seems to be this un-concerned about your daughter I would consider finding another neurologist. I would most definetly get another opinion. Hope you get an answer soon.
NOTE: watch her around flashing lights, video games computer screens and tv shows with a lot of flashing. Sometimes these can trigger a seizure.
has her blood been tested by Doctor or you. it makes a difference.I say shes got diabetes. and needs a better chiropractor.

Get a gycosylated hemoglobin level checked to see if the overall glucose control is fine. If it is, then dizziness can be due to PCOD, thyroid disorders, adrenal gland problems or due to pinched nerve in the neck—possible due to traction also.
Generally low sodium or blood sugar precipitates non epileptic seizures. Another possibility is brain ischemia or low oxygen. Sleep disorders and benign positional vertigo can also cause both dizziness and seizures. Please discuss this with your daughter’s treating doctor. Take care!
