Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. MRI is mandatory to rule out any lesion inside. Also EEGs should be advised as it could be focal fits.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
