What are focal onset seizures?

ANSWER

Focal onset seizures start in a single part of the brain. Her arm might start to move or her face start to twitch. And even though she's awake and aware, she can't control it. She might seem to zone out or stare at nothing as the seizure becomes complex. Afterward, she won't remember a thing.
