Hi there, I read your post with interest, I had my first seizure 3 months ago,I am 39,  a grand mal apparently, having had the blood test, the mri and the eeg they diagnose me with me with mild epilepsy and prescribed keppra, I haven't started it yet and am very reluctant too until i have another eeg. I too was stressed and sleep deprived when i had my seizure. I have been fine ever since.
