Our Neuro said the our son has tonicclonic seizures(TC) and complex partial (CP) seizures but according to the EEG he does not have absence(A) seizures. I have personally witnessed both the (TC) and the (CP) seizures, and I know what they look like. Lately he has been having staring spells that last only a few seconds, and he does not respond to me. I have read about the difference between them and it seems obvious that he is having (A) seizures, am I correct and the dr wrong, or has something changed in my son since the last EEG?? I am so confused, but don't want to argue with the dr.
Additional Info: In the hospital he told us that our son was not having (A) seizures because of the area of the brain with spikes and waves on the EEG. ( I know I should have paid more attention and asked more questions, but I was a little overwhelmed) He went on to say something along the lines of "his EEG is not consistant with (A) seizures". However at that time we had never suspected that type of seizure just (TC) and (CP).
