  • Overview

    Seizure disorders are a chronic group of neurological diseases characterized by episodes of abnormal, unorganized, electrical activity that takes place in the cortical gray matter of the brain and temporarily disrupt and interfere with normal charges in the brain. Such unprovoked and unpredictable disruption in the electrical brain activity may lead to transient attacks of unusual sensation, confusion, lack of awareness of surroundings, unconsciousness and physical convulsions. The terms epilepsy and seizure are often used interchangeably as there is no difference between the two. However, convulsions, confusion and lack of awareness of surroundings as a result of health problems such as fever, head trauma, and brain cancer are not considered epilepsy. Symptoms of seizures vary from one patient to another, but for the most part depend on the source of the abnormal condition(s).
