More About Epilepsy
Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes seizures. They occur when the electrical signals in the brain are disrupted or don’t work properly.
Seizures may cause uncontrolled muscle movements, loss of awareness, stiffness in the body or even unconsciousness. Some people with epilepsy have seizures that are triggered by certain events or circumstances, such as lack of sleep, stress, fever, and flashing lights or patterns. For others, seizures are unpredictable. With the right treatment and support, many people with epilepsy can live with limited disruption.
