Seizure on Thursday 6/12/2014 @ 9:30am is this considered a non-emergent or emergent situation? Was diagnosed with epilepsy 3 years ago. Last seizure was 2 1/2 years ago before this past Thursday.
Having a regular seizure that stops isn't an emergency since you know you have epilepsy. If a seizure doesn't stop then it becomes an emergency. Your dr needs to be made aware that you had a seizure. You may need your meds adjusted.
As long as they don't persist, it's not anything to worry about. You should notify your doctor or neurologist, but you should be fine.
They say (I'm epileptic) if seizure lasts for 5 minutes or more it's an emergency, also if you have 'cluster fits' going into several fits at a time without stopping this also is a medical emergency, otherwise no, just let ur doc know u had one, and he may adjust ur meds
