Question: Can a person start having mild seizures that prevent them from continuing conversations or remembering how to do tasks they have done for years? He describes it as a blank page that he can't remember the conversation before or after. He said he can fill it beginning to happen. My husband has had an MRI and nothing abnormal with the except sinus pilups (sorry don't know how to spell it. We plan to follow up with a neurologist.

Consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

Yes this is possible. An MRI cannot assess for seizures. He would need an EEG for that. The neurologist should be able to evaluate him and determine if he needs an EEG for further testing.
