    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.
