Children may have very few seizures and most become seizure-free by the age of 16. They may have focal aware seizures, (previously called simple partial seizures) often at night, which begin with a tingling feeling in the mouth, gurgling or grunting noises and dribbling. Speech can be temporarily affected, and symptoms may develop into a generalized tonic-clonic seizure. AEDs may not be necessary, but they can be helpful to control seizures.
