Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
You had seizures, 3 times in 2 weeks.It does not mean that you have epilepsy.
The reasons for the convulsions may be the epilepsy, hypertension, worms in the brain or tuberculosis.
I advise you to consult a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to have E.E.G, and C.T.scan for diagnosis.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.

You have seizure disorder which probably could be Epilepsy but only be diagnosed after proper history (as you gave incomplete history ) , examination and reports .
As you are going EEG so u must be under Neurophyscian guidance. There are plenty of conditions which causes Seizure disorder and upon treatment of cause it is cured . Even if its epilepsy you just need to take medication at proper time regularly without fail and after 5 year of seizure free period drug can be tappered n later stopped .
So just follow advise of neurophyscian and be in his regular follow up.

Thanks n regards
