Epilepsy, also called seizure disorder, results from abnormal electrical impulses in the brain. Seizures, which can last from a few seconds to several minutes, may include convulsions or loss of consciousness. Many seizures are milder, and may include staring blankly and jerky movements of the arms and legs. Mild seizures may not result in complete loss of consciousness.
Appropriate medical treatment can often fully control the symptoms of epilepsy, allowing patients to live active, normal lives.
