Welcome to HCM.

In 90% cases,the cause of seizures could not be detected despite having all the routine and neurological investigations.

Do you have been further investigated for your complex partial seizures?

Now,causes of recurrent seizures like in your case could be failure to take medication or anxiety or stress or electrolyte imbalance etc which should be further investigated for why these seizures came back.

These are more exaggerating factors rather than causes for recurrent seizures.

You must consult your neurologist for further advise and probably you are getting to see him soon.

You should continue your anti-epileptic drugs with reduction of above mentioned exaggerating factors.

However,the tendency will always remain there despite taking the anti-epileptic drugs.So one might experience seizure episode again.

Hope this helps.
