Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. You have a mild seizure disorder, as you have had only two episodes of seizures in the past 25 years.

I do not understand by "the test result was not satisfactory". Please explain what was the test and what was its result? Please upload it here.

As far as I am concerned, you are seizure-free for two years while on eptoin (phenytoin), so, it is a good news.

I agree that alcohol is not good, so, it is better not to re-start it. Also, keep yourself tension-free and get adequate sleep at night to prevent any recurrence of seizures.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
