Epilepsy support group EPILEPSY-L is an E-mail based support group ( discussion list ) for people with epilepsy and those who care about and for them. People with epilepsy (PwEs), parents of children with epilepsy, family and friends of PwEs, and health professionals who work with PwEs are all welcome to join. This forum is a great place to learn about epilepsy, share experiences, ask for opinions, and get advice on the situations facing you in regard to epilepsy. However, please remember that the people you meet here are speaking from their own experiences and they are not in any position to diagnose or treat your condition. Do not alter your treatment based on advice from anyone on this list, including health professionals, without checking with your physician first. This list is not affiliated with any medical or other organization. It is run by just "regular" people. L-Soft International provides the facilities to run the list through their EASE HOME service, but they have no other tie to the EPILEPSY-L list, and are not responsible for the content. Finally, there are people on this list of all ages (including minors), nationalities, faiths, and walks of life. Please show respect for cultural differences and try to find ways of expressing yourself without resorting to offensive language. If you are offended by something someone else said, please take it up with them personally, not with the whole list, unless it is relevant to epilepsy. (Usually, such "offenses" stem from cultural misunderstandings, not from any ill intentions on the part of the "offender").

  • What is a seizure? If someone has a seizure, does that mean they suffer from epilepsy? A seizure is a change in behavioral state which results from abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Given the right set of circumstances (e.g. - blow to the head, intoxication, high fever) anyone can experience a seizure. The occurrence of a seizure in the presence of some acute precipitating physiological disturbance does not mean that it will ever happen after the precipitating cause has resolved. When seizures recur without any obvious precipitant or cause, then a person may be considered to have epilepsy. What happens during a seizure?

    WHAT IS EPILEPSY?
    Epilepsy is a symptom of an underlying neurologic dysfunction occurring within the brain. Toxic substances, metabolic or electrolyte abnormalities or imbalances cause an uncoordinated firing of the neurons located within the section of the brain known as the cerebrum. These episodes of uncoordinated firing manifest themselves in the form of convulsions or seizures in which the dog may experience mild tremors to severe thrashing movements. Epilepsy may occur secondary to many diseases such as distemper, brain tumors, liver or heart failure, diabetes, or as a result of exposure to toxic substances or trauma. However, "true" epilepsy as that which occurs in hereditary syndromes within certain breeds of dogs manifests as a symptom of primary neurologic dysfunction of which the cause is still unknown. As such, from a clinical standpoint, in cases of true epilepsy, only the symptom is treatable.

    Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California
    Epilepsy is one of the major health problems of our nation. More than 2.3 million Americans have epilepsy, yet it remains one of our most misunderstood and unknown health issues. About 181,000 new cases affecting people of all ages are diagnosed each year, resulting from head injury, stroke, prenatal illness, a variety of illnesses, and many other causes. The cause of epilepsy is unknown in over 70% of cases. About half of people with epilepsy have continuing seizures even with treatment. Many face problems in educational attainment, employment, transportation, and social interactions. The Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California is your local center providing services to families affected by epilepsy since 1953. We are dedicated to serving the nearly 90,000 people with epilepsy in our region and seek to ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences and prevent, control and cure epilepsy.

    Epilepsy Week 16-22 May 2004 What is Epilepsy Week? What is epilepsy? The facts Managing epilepsy ... Stephen's story What is Epilepsy Week? Epilepsy Week is an annual national health campaign aimed at raising awareness of the condition. What is Epilepsy? Epilepsy is a common brain disorder. The condition is characterised by re-occurring epileptic seizures. These seizures happen, primarily, as a result of a disturbance of brain functions. The facts
    • More than 300,000 people in the UK have epilepsy (1 in 200); 80 new cases are diagnosed in the UK every day. One person in 50 will develop epilepsy at some time in their life. 1 in 20 will have a single seizure. Epilepsy is diagnosed on the basis of two or more epileptic seizures. A seizure is triggered by a sudden interruption in the brain's highly complex electro-chemical activity. Epilepsy can develop at any age. However, it is diagnosed most often before the age of 20 and after the age of 60.

        Table of Contents
        Introduction
        Epilepsy represents the most common serious neurologic problem affecting children, with an overall incidence approaching 2% for febrile seizures and 1% for idiopathic epilepsy. Diagnosis is complicated by protean clinical manifestations which are age-dependent and differ substantially from adult seizure disorders. For example, infantile spasms may be misinterpreted as a simple startle reflex and absence (petit mal) seizures are sometimes attributed to inattention or attention deficit. Effective treatment depends largely on the physician's ability to establish an accurate diagnosis and choose appropriate therapy based on the likelihood of clinical benefit as well as potential side effects.

    Epilepsy
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    Epilepsy (sometimes referred to as a seizure disorder ) is a chronic neurological condition characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures . The condition is named from the Greek epilepsia ("a taking hold of or seizing"), and has in the past been associated with religious experiences and even demonic possession Historically epilepsy was called the Sacred Disease because people thought that epileptic seizures were a form of attack by demons, and that the visions epileptics experienced were sent by the Gods Hippocrates http://quote.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocrates remarked that epilepsy would be considered divine only until it was understood. Table of contents 1 Types of epileptic seizures 2 Causes 3 Treatment 4 Controversy ... edit
    Types of epileptic seizures
    Epileptic seizures are classified both by their patterns of activity in the brain and their effects on behaviour. In terms of their pattern of activity, seizures may be described as either partial or generalised . Partial seizures only involve a localised part of the brain, whereas generalised seizures involve the entire cortex . The term 'secondary generalisation' may be used to describe a partial seizure that later spreads to the whole of the cortex and becomes generalised. Partial seizures may be further subdivided into simple and complex seizures. This refers to the effect of such a seizure on consciousness; simple seizures cause no interruption to consciousness (although they may cause sensory distortions or other sensations) whereas complex seizures interrupt consciousness. This does not necessarily mean that the person experiencing this sort of seizure will fall unconscious (like a faint). For example, complex partial seizures may involve the unconscious repetition of simple actions, gestures or verbal utterances.

    Login Directory Merchandise Contact Us ... Abstracts/Annual Meeting Publications Full size image available below Epilepsy and GABA Years of research on the brain's message delivery system is paying off for patients with epilepsy. Scientists discovered that abnormal levels of chemicals such as GABA unbalance the system and may cause a seizure. Now they are developing new treatments that promote harmony in the message delivery system and efficiently ward off seizures. When a chemical thunderstorm churns in the brain, messages normally delivered with precision from one cell to the next gush out of control. This flood of nerve cell chatter may trigger parts of your body to contract rapidly, your mouth to salivate, a feeling of "deja vu" and even a total blackout a seizure.
    For years scientists have been analyzing the brain's message delivery system in order to find ways to control seizures. People who experience repeated seizures suffer from epilepsy. This ailment is one of the most prevalent neurological disorders, afflicting approximately one percent of Americans about 2.5 million people. Seizures can occur in healthy children, adults and the elderly as well as those with other disorders such as a brain injury.
    Traditional medications are not successful for all patients and carry numerous side effects. Now after a 15-year drought, several new epilepsy drugs are close to approval in the United States. Many of these recent developments stem from the discovery of the chemical GABA (gamma-amino butyric acid) in 1950.
