When I went to an epileptologist he said normal EEGs don't always show seizure activity and wanted me in the hospital for up to a week to be monitored visually and hooked up too. His working dx were bipolar, panic, complex partial epilepsy, epileptic status and fugue state. I've had gran mal seizures as a result of car accidents and I'm diagnosed with panic and bipolar disorders which are all types of neuronal(right word?) misfiring. So, in my case the diagnosis isn't what's important- the treatment is- AED's which are useful in mood disorders in addition to epilepsy. Personally I would rather have a psych diagnosis than epilepsy because you wouldn't believe the hoops I have to jump through to keep my driver's license after my last seizure- which all drs/hospitals have to report because of state law. Take care, Judy
