It may not necessary to get investigations in this moment.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Lacyamanda,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. I have analyzed your query completely.

So you went to the neurologist already. As you have taken the EEG and CT scan for the first time when you had the seizure, it is not necessary to repeat the investigation unless some other findings were there. Kindly take the drugs prescribed by your doctor regularly.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Yes, still, it may not necessary.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back,

Stress is one of the provoking factor (triggering factor) for seizure. Other provoking factors for seizure include electrolyte imbalance, smoking, alcohol consumption, sleep deprivation, hormonal changes in the body etc.

So, better to avoid stress and other provoking factors.

I hope this explains the answer to your question now. Since you already had seizure episodes earlier, due to stress, later on, the seizure has been provoked. So it is not necessary to repeat the investigations now. Just take the medicines regularly and avoid stress.

Thank you.
