Epilepsy Basics

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

1. Tonic-Clonic Seizures: It combines tonic (stiffening) and clonic (jerking).
• Seizures lasting 5+ minutes need 911 especially with choking or injuries.
• If seizures last more than 10 min. go to a hospital immediately.
2. Absence Seizures: Is a blank look with eyes turning up and fluttering eyelids
3. Atonic Seizures: When a person becomes limp, falls, and may not be aware.

Focal Onset Seizures

1. Focal Onset Aware Seizures: Person is aware during a seizure but may be frozen.
2. Focal Onset Impaired Awareness Seizures: Person is confused, doesn't realize what is going on, no memory. Engages in involuntary actions. Dangerous acts. Sometimes removes clothes.

Unknown Onset Seizures
