I was Diagnose with Epilepsy when I was 9 now I am 31.

Hello,

I haven'get anything since the age of nine. I was under medication until the age of 14. Now I am 31 and I was wondering if epilepsy ever comes back. I have been getting weird symptoms like dizzy, light headed, daja vo, and also that feeling like if I go blank and feel like i tiny bug getting squish. But it only happens to me for like a minute or so and at that moment I am not aware of it after is over I start having the feeling like if i was dreaming but in reality I was awake and then I start feeling sad and more strange ...Uhg..Is it coming back?
Please help...!

Thank you Karla

Yes, epilepsy can come back (or change).  I went off medication in my early 20s, because I hadn't had a seizure since the age of three.  A few years later, I had a tonic-clonic seizure and went back on phenobarbitol (which had controlled my seizures for all those years).  Then when I was 38 years old, I started having partial complex seizures.  Dr. tried new medications (Tegretol and then also Keppra), but the seizures continued.  My neurologist explained that age can be a factor.
