Slide background

Epilepsy is a condition that is more common than many believe. It’s a catch-all for a group of neurological disorders where activity across the brain becomes out of sync. Seizures, strange sensations, and even loss of awareness are all effects of abnormal brain activity among those with epilepsy.

Epilepsy can strike just about anyone – there’s no particular predisposition towards males or females, or a particular race or ethnic background. The actual effects and symptoms of epilepsy can be greatly different among people. Some with epilepsy will just blank out for a few seconds. Others might fall and start to twitch or convulse wildly.
