Epilepsy is a chronic disease involving recurrent unprovoked seizures. It currently affects almost 4 million Americans. Epilepsy has many different symptoms caused by what is sometimes called “electrical storms” in the brain. These “storms” can affect one side of the brain or the other.
Generalized Onset Seizures
Focal Onset Seizures
Unknown Onset Seizures
What causes epilepsy?
The brain's electrical disorder can affect physical or mental reactions. Epilepsy is usually caused by brain injury from trauma, stroke, disease, tumors, genetics or birth defects. There could even be some combination that caused this condition.The above risk factors can develop epilepsy in both children and adults. It can happen in a baby with abnormal brain growth. It can happen in the prime of life. It can happen late in life with brain injury.
No known cause can be determined for some people since the injury to the brain has left no trace.
About 7 out of 10 people with epilepsy are treated successfully using drug therapy to control their recurrent seizures.
