What is Epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a condition that affects the brain and causes repeated seizures (a surge of electrical activity in the brain).
It is estimated and reported by NHS UK that over half a million people in the UK suffer from epilepsy - a staggering figure equating to one in a 100.
In a seizure, the cells in the brain fire abnormally. Therefore lots of unusual activity causes the brain and body to behave in an unusual way.
Seizures differ from person to person and not every seizure is necessarily the same as the last one. 'Some people simply experience an odd feeling with no loss of awareness, or may have a "trance-like" state for a few seconds or minutes, while others lose consciousness and have convulsions (uncontrollable shaking of the body).' - Source: www.NHS.uk
Some people may only have a single seizure at some point during their life; only those who develop a risk of experiencing further seizures throughout life are treated as having epilepsy.
