My son is will be 11 in February, he was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was 5. I don’t know much about what type he has other than they are absent type. I have been to two different doctors and feel like I know nothing. From what I have read he has till maturity to correct the problem or his chances are he will have them for life. My main question is how do I find out exact what type he has and do I need to find another dr? My husband was seen at Mayo in Minnesota last year and we have thought about taking him there. I am just unsure what I need to do.
