Hello. From your description it appears that convulsions that you had in childhood were totally different from the 'panic attacks' that you are having now. And in that your neurologist
is right in stopping medication. The normal MRI
and EEG also is a good reassurance before stopping drugs for convulsions. Very rarely convulsions may appear like 'panic attacks' and in that case it is best to have a recording of the EEG during the attack preferably with a video (Video EEG). Once diagnosis is settled, psychiatrist
will be able to guide you regarding further treatment. For such problems usually a combination of medications and behavioral therapy
is needed. So speak to your neurophysician and decide further. Good luck.
