Martha is Diagnosed with Epilepsy

Martha has this week been formally diagnosed with epilepsy. Martha has been having "petit-mal" type seizures for a few months and she was referred to a paediatrician at Frimley Park Hospital to investigate.

Martha attended St Peters hospital for an electroencephalograph (EEG). The preliminary results have shown that she has generalised seizures (meaning both sides of the brain are affected). Martha has now been referred to a specialist who will hopefully find the right treatment for Martha to minimise the impact of this going forwards.


  1. So sorry to hear this. Knowledge is power so I hope that the fact that they have found what is wrong can now mean they can find the treatment. Thinking of you xx

    1. Thanks Vicky. Martha will be seeing a specialist shortly - hopefully they will point us in the right direction.
