Hello, (epileptic here).
Totally agree speak to your GP, preferably your neurologist as NEADs and epilepsy can be so, so different from one person to the next. I can only really comment on the seizure side as I believe the causes for NEADs can be different from that of epilepsy although the outcomes are the same.
Is there a pattern to your seizures? Do you know what causes them? Are you suffering from full-on tonic-clonic seizures or "funny turns" (excuse the term funny turns but they can be so varied from staring into space to walking around in circles mumbling I can't think of another word.)
There are a few devices out there that can sense and send an alarm to a friend/relative if they sense you are having a fit (I think they are based on if they think you have fallen over).
If you decide to run always let somebody know where you are going and how long you expect to be. I usually have a piece of ID on me should I end up in a hedge or something.
