All scans came back normal for my son as well. He stared out with three seizures in one year, spaced equally apart. Now he averages one a week while on anti seizure meds. Epilepsy can start at any time, so first you need to write everything down, what he ate, if he was over tired, etc. try not to panic since it's possible he'll never have them again. If you can find a pediatric epileptologist, that is a better bet. They only see patients with seizure disorders. Best of luck.

My son has had the same things but they can be at different times of the day.
We have had an EEG done and that came back normal (so not epilepsy). The doctor had a heart monitor on him for 24 hours and that came back with some irregularities so we are off the cardiologist this week to see if he can shed some light on the problem.
It's just a matter of elimination and your doctor trying to get to the bottom of it.

Are these the first seizures your son has had? My friend has seizures and they are very scary. He has the grand mal seizures that are the worst someone can have. If you have not already gotten him to a doctor, please do so soon. The doctor can do tests that may be able to tell you why he is having them. Also, can put him on anti-seizure medication.

trying to get him with a pediatric neurologist but 200 miles away I think he should see an adult neurologist and reaching out now to a very good one.
