Epilepsy

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder and affects people of all ages. This is a chronic disorder that causes unprovoked and recurrent seizures. A seizure is a sudden rush of electrical activity in the brain. During a seizure a person experiences abnormal behavior, symptoms, sensations, and sometimes, loss of consciousness.

Seizures are the only visible symptom of epilepsy. There are different types of seizures. What each seizure looks like can vary. For example, someone may blank out for a couple of seconds, they may wander around and act confused, or they may fall to the ground and shake. Not all seizures involve convulsions.

Epilepsy can start at any age, but it’s most commonly diagnosed in people under 20 and people over 65. There are manytests that can be done to help with the diagnoses of Epilepsy such as an EEG and MRI scan.

If you or someone you love has experienced 2 or more seizures, please visit Centennial Neurology. We understand Epilepsy and how to care for patients who have this condition. We evaluate, diagnose, and treat Epilepsy.
