Medical Really need help confused

  1. Aug 5, 2012 #1
    when i was 14 and my mom walked in my bedroom and turned the light on to wake me for school she couldnt wake me up and my eyes were rolling in back of my head
    she tried walking me around but my body was limp
    she called ambulance but i was fine by the time they got there
    they took me to the ER and gave me blood work and and EEG all was fine they sent me home
    two days later same thing happened this time my dad was home and tried slapping me in the face but i wouldnt wake up
    same deal the ambulance came they gave me an MRI which was fine but the EEG showed seizure and the DR said i had a drug in my system like cocaine later they found out it was my sleeping pill that i was prescribed which was phenobarbital they said it was too strong for a child.
    my family DR said the sleeping med caused this but the neuro said it was epilepsy

    i quit the sleeping pill and started dilantin and for 15 years i have remained seizure free even though my dilantin levels have always been low
    i have developed anxiety that i may have another seizure but a recent neuro visit my first in 15 years said that i was probaly not epileptic and to tapper off dilantin
    what do you guys think

    the anxiety and panic make me dizzy and i worry that is a seizure
