Epilepsy Clinic

What is Epilepsy?

  • Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain. People are diagnosed with epilepsy when they have had two or more seizures.
  • There are different types of seizures. A person with epilepsy can suffer from multiple seizures.

Major Types of Seizures:

Seizures are classified into two groups:-

  • Generalized seizures - affect both sides of the brain.
    • Absence seizures, previously called petit mal seizures, can cause rapid blinking or a few seconds of staring into space.
    • Tonic-clonic seizures, previously called grand mal seizures, can make a person lose consciousness, fall to the ground & have muscle jerks or spasms.
  • Focal seizures - are located in just one area of the brain. These seizures are also called partial seizures.
    • Simple focal seizures affect a small part of the brain. These seizures can cause twitching or a change in sensation, such as a strange taste or smell.
    • Complex focal seizures can make a person with epilepsy confused or dazed. The person will be unable to respond to questions or directions for up to a few minutes.
    • Secondary generalized seizures begin in one part of the brain, but then spread to both sides of the brain. In other words, the person first has a focal seizure, followed by a generalized seizure.
