Epilepsy is a neurological condition that is characterized by recurrent seizures. A person may be diagnosed as having epilepsy if they had had at least two seizures that were not provoked by a known cause such as sleep deprivation or low blood sugar level. Epilepsy may be due to prenatal or antenatal cerebral injury, brain lesions, tumors or trauma, neurological infection or very often, due to an unknown cause.
Seizures are considered as one of the symptoms of epilepsy. Seizures are of many types and they can feel and look different that depends upon how quickly or how far they spread to the brain. For example.
- A person may black out and fall on the ground.
- A person may experience a strange feeling as if he or she is out of touch with their surroundings.
- Arms may jerk suddenly.
- Muscles may feel limp or stiff.
- A person may tremble or twitch
