Epilepsy Symptoms and Signs
Epilepsy is a brain disorder that belongs to a group of over 40 seizure disorders. It's not contagious and it's not caused by a
mental illness or disability. Seizures are a symptom of epilepsy. When a person
with epilepsy has a seizure, they have symptoms like convulsions; muscle spasms;
strange sensations, emotions, or behavior; and loss of consciousness.
