Epilepsy vs. Seizures
Epilepsy is characterized by a seizure or a sudden electrical brain disturbance that causes a change of behavior, feelings or movements in a person. An epileptic seizure may cause a person to have convulsions or involuntary muscle spasms that cause the body to shake uncontrollably.
It is recommended that you see a doctor if you suspect that your child is having seizures or is having unexplained attacks. When you need a consultation or second opinion, lean on our nationally ranked pediatric neurological experts at our Level Four Epilepsy Center.
