What Is Epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a chronic neurological condition that affects the nervous system. It is characterised by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of uncontrolled electrical activity in the brain.
Seizures can vary from mild to severe, and they may cause a variety of symptoms. Some people with epilepsy only experience occasional seizures, while others may have frequent or even constant seizures. Epilepsy can be a debilitating condition that significantly impacts a person’s quality of life.
There is no single cause of epilepsy, but it can be caused by genetic factors, head injuries, infections, and other health conditions. Epilepsy is usually treated with medication, but some people may also require surgery.
Epilepsy is a relatively common condition, and it is estimated that around 1% of the population worldwide has epilepsy. In the United Kingdom, approximately 600,000 people have epilepsy.
