PATIENT STORY

Seizures - which are more common in children than adults - are caused by abnormal brain functions that lead to muscle spasms, loss of consciousness or other symptoms. Anyone can have a seizure under certain circumstances, and recurrent seizures are sometimes an indication of other medical problems (epilepsy, for example). 

Watching your child have a seizure can be upsetting and frightening. Even more concerning for most parents is the chance that your child could have a seizure when you're not there. Because seizures can happen without warning, it's best to have a plan in place so you - and other caregivers - can be prepared if an episode occurs.
