Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that causes people to have seizures. When clusters of neurons in the brain send out the wrong signals, this causes a seizure. People may feel strange sensations or emotions, behave strangely, have violent muscle spasms, or even lose consciousness.
Epilepsy is diagnosed with an electroencephalograph, a noninvasive and painless measurement of the brain’s electrical activity.
Epilepsy can be well-managed with medication.
