Seizures - Check Your Symptoms

Step One
Step Two
Step Three
Note:

If your child is younger than 6 years, has a fever, and has had a seizure, go to the topic Fever Seizures.

Was this your first seizure?

Do you think your seizure was caused by a medicine?

Do you think that your seizure was caused by withdrawal from alcohol or a medicine, including an illegal drug?

Do you have epilepsy?

Do you think you may have had a seizure without loss of consciousness?

Do you have epilepsy and you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant?

If a visit to a health professional is not needed immediately, see the Home Treatment section for self-care information.
