How do you diagnose abdominal epilepsy?

ANSWER

It can be a chicken-and-egg debate. Sometimes before a seizure, people get symptoms called auras. They might smell something that's not there or see flashing lights.

Auras with abdominal symptoms are common. can tell you a seizure is coming. But are they ever evidence of seizures?
