Epilepsy: Top 5 Symptoms

Thursday, 10 Feb 2011 12:12 PM

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects the nervous system. It is a seizure disorder that is usually diagnosed after a person has had at least two seizures that were not caused by any known medical conditions like alcohol withdrawal or extremely low blood sugar. 
Symptoms of epilepsy vary depending upon the type of seizure. In most cases, a person with epilepsy will tend to have the same type of seizure each time, so the symptoms will be similar from episode to episode.  

Epilepsy usually occurs as sudden, recurrent attacks at irregular intervals. The sufferer may have sudden, violent shivering and may fall unconscious to the ground and convulse. Epilepsy mostly causes foaming at the mouth, biting of the tongue, deviation of the eyes, rotation of the head, twitching of the muscles, and distorted limbs. The sufferer may even lose control of their bladder.
For some people, epileptic seizures are frequent and strong. A person suffering from a milder form will not get frequent seizures and these seizures will be very mild and may manifest themselves as short periods of loss of consciousness, or even just feeling a little "strange" for a moment and then feeling fine.
