Epileptic Seizures Directory

Seizures are the main sign of epilepsy. They are caused by a brain disorder that creates recurrent abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Epileptic seizures, including generalized and partial, can be dangerous. If someone has a seizure, move things out of the way so that person does not get hurt. The most important thing is to prevent head injury during a seizure. Seizures can be treated with medications or surgery. Your doctor will help you decide how to treat your case. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how epileptic seizures are caused, what happens during a seizure, how to treat and prevent seizures, and much more.
