What is Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a condition that causes children and adults to have repeated seizures. Seizures result from abnormal stimulation of brain cells known as neurones which causes the body to react in an unusual way.

The severity of the seizures can vary from person to person, some seizures can cause people to loose awareness or freeze for a couple of minutes others can cause convulsions (uncontrollable shaking) and loss of consciousness.

Epilepsy often starts in childhood due to an unknown reason, others can be a result of brain injury, eg a severe head injury.
