hi all! I joined other groups on here for other reasons but i'll get straight to the point. i was diagnosed when i was 4 with petit mal. i "grew out it" by 12 and have been off meds ever since. I am now 30 yrs old. I have had migraines all my life but off and on. At 17 i started having extremly severe headaches. I waited two weeks in excruiating pain (i was dumb) before going to a doctor. I spent many years after going to different neurologists and having many tests and different meds. Finally i was diagnosed with a mix of migraine and tension headaches. I stopped going to the doc becuase i no longer had insurance and nothing seemed to be working. I know have experienced some stress recently in my mother having cancer (she is good now) and me dealing with alot of things. Now I am doing some things that are uncharacteristic of me and scare me and i think i may be having seizures again. I used to have the abscence kind. I am going to make an appt soon but thought does anyone here know if someone had petit mal (my first seizure was at birth though diagnosed 4 yrs later) and "outgrew it" can they have absence or other types of seizures in adulthood? i just want to know if it is possible because i was under the impression it wasn't thanks ND
