12yo male with no family history of chronic seizures was diagnosed by his doctor with chronic seizures. His last episode was him sitting at a dinner table, when all of the sudden he experienced what he believed to be a bright light coming towards him. He completely zoned out, terrified of this light approaching him, and was drenched in sweat in the following minutes. He did not experience a seizure at this time, as his family was nearby him and were able to speak to him and calm him down. Has anyone had a similar experience? This is very strange behavior, and we believe there may be something else to it other than chronic seizures.
Some additional information: the child also experienced a very short migraine like head pain immediately after the “bright light”.
