What is epilepsy?
It is a disorder of brain function that takes the form of recurring convulsive or non-convulsive seizures. Epilepsy is not just one condition; rather it is a diverse family of disorders comprising many seizure types.
10% of the population are at risk of experiencing a seizure during their lifetime, while 3-4% will go on to be diagnosed with epilepsy.
There are seizures that are not epileptic such as those that result from diabetes, kinked blood vessels and a range of other health conditions.
