Epilepsy and Seizures

Epilepsy is like no other disorder. It hits about one person in 100, and it can start at any age. Seizures may strike often, or almost never. Attacks take many different forms, from violent convulsions and unconsciousness, to a brief episode of lost awareness. What, then, is epilepsy? This authoritative new addition to the Your Personal Health Series explains what we know about this unpredictable disorder and gives detailed, practical advice on living with it.

Topics include:
  • how to recognize different kinds of epilepsy
  • how and why the brain produces these various patterns
  • what tests and procedures are used to diagnose epilepsy
  • how drugs can help, or harm
  • when surgery makes sense
  • epilepsy in pregnancy, childhood and old age
