My son was diagnosed recently with Benign Rolandic Epilepsy. He had some partial seizures localized to his mouth in March. We saw two neurologists and had two EEGs done. His Neuro felt that medication was not necessary at this time. Recently he has started having a couple of small seizures during the daytime. The only reason I know he is having him is that he is describing them to me. I can't see any outward signs. He just says his chin or mouth hurts and feels like it is pinchy. He also drooled a tiny bit today during it.
My question is that he is turning 5 the end of August. We were planning to send him to Kindergarten. We were nervous about it anyway since he will be so young, but now we are really wondering if it is the right decision given his new diagnosis and the fact that now all of a sudden he seems to be having more seizures even though they are really mild.
My gut is now telling me we should wait to send him.
