Epilepsy is a set of neurological disorders affecting the nervous system. Epilepsy occurs when brain cells give off abnormal signals, which cause an “electrical storm” that produces seizures. There are seven main causes of epilepsy, which includes: depleted oxygen at birth, infections such as menigitis, stroke, brain tumors, head injury, abnormal levels of blood sugar, and genetic conditions that result in brain injury; however 70% of cases discover no cause. People who suffer from Epilepsy experience more than one type of seizure. Approximately 2.5 million Americans suffer from Epilepsy and about 9% of Americans will experience a seizure at least once in their lifetime.
