The best way to describe epilepsy is as a temporary short circuit of the brain causing a lack of awareness of your surroundings. The presentation may vary.
Everyone is born with a seizure threshold. If your threshold is high, you are less likely to have a seizure disorder.
Activities that may trigger a seizure: alcohol consumption, sleep deprivation, stress, illness, flickering lights, and hormones.
Lavender is the official color for Epilepsy awareness.
Neurologists are specialized physicians who may diagnose and treat a patient with seizure disorders.
One of the main testing for Epilepsy is an EEG, which is a test to monitor your brain waves. Once diagnosed, your physician may place you on specific seizure medications.
