Epilepsy:

 

• Epilepsy is a brain disorder

• It leads to repeated seizures and convulsions

 

Symptoms to look for:

 

• Stiffening of muscles

• Mild or vigorous shaking of arms and legs

• Patient appears to be staring in some direction

• Accidental urination

• Unconsciousness

• Patient may cry or make noise

• Vomiting

• Drooling

• Memory loss

 

Causes:

 

• The brain sends electrical impulses which control muscle movements

• In epilepsy, excessive electrical impulses are sent out by the brain

• This leads to stiffening of the muscles which causes jerking reactions

• The seizure stops when the brain stops sending these impulses
