Day 1 – What is Epilepsy??
Epilepsy, as defined by Webster, states that it is a noun meaning: any of various disorders marked by abnormal electrical discharges in the brain and typically manifested by sudden brief episodes of altered or diminished consciousness, involuntary movements, or convulsions.
The problem with Epilepsy is that it is a vast disorder covering a wide range of little understood actions of the brain. It is often diagnosed through an EEG which provides a chart of various abnormal electrical discharges the brain puts off throughout a set time frame. There is often no explaination as to why these electrical discharges are abnormal nor why the body reacts to them with any of a number of types of seizures.
