Epilepsy & Seizures Support Group

Epilepsy (often referred to as a seizure disorder) is a chronic neurological condition characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. It is commonly controlled with medication, although surgical methods are used as well. Seizures (or convulsions) are temporary abnormal electrophysiologic phenomena of the brain, resulting in abnormal synchronization of electrical neuronal activity.

    I think I have epilepsy

    1
    my brother has epilepsy and if he had a lack of sleep he would jump like he got shocked and then one day after doing an all nighter that night he had a seizure. When I get a lack of sleep I get the same jolts and I'm scared that I might have epilepsy.

I was happy because finally no...

    Grand Mal Seizures

    0
    I just wanted to share that I suffered siezures until I began to study natural healing and Medical MJ.  I have been seizure free since I began my new way of life in 2015.  So, dont give up hope and look at your options.  I did all their tests, tried their drugs which only gave me another seizure.  They had no answers for the seizures so luckily I am my own advocate and healed myself

    Does anyone else have Jacksonian seizures?

    1
    I haven't found anyone with my specific issue which was suddenly developing Jacksonian epilepsy but I have no other history of epilepsy/seizures. I think some people with other forms of epilepsy also experience Jacksonian seizures but I don't know anyone else who just has this. Does anyone have a similar experience to me?

I was so terrified because this was the first time I had ever seen a seizure. This lasted for maybe around 5 minutes. Afterwards he was completely disoriented and didn't know what was going on which lasted for maybe another...
