What is epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain. In people with epilepsy, brain cells create abnormal electricity that causes seizures. A seizure may cause "jerking" movements. In some cases, seizures cause only a loss of consciousness, a period of confusion, a staring spell or muscle spasms. A single seizure is not considered epilepsy. People with epilepsy have repeated episodes of seizures. Epilepsy is not a mental illness, and it is not a sign of low intelligence. It is also not contagious. Between seizures, a person with epilepsy is no different from anyone else. Return to top
What should I do when someone has a seizure?
If you have epilepsy, you may want to share the following information with your family, friends and coworkers. If someone near you has a seizure, use the following general guidelines:
  • Stay calm.

145. Your Animal's Health -- With Dr. Wendell O. Belfield
The Web Magazine for Modern Pet Owners Idiopathic epilepsy by Dr. Wendell O. Belfield Back Issue Index Arthritis and Related Joint Diseases of the Canine Sodium
January/February 1998
E pilepsy is defined as "a nervous disease with loss of consciousness, and tonic and clonic convulsions" and idiopathic is defined as "spontaneous." So what we have here is a spontaneous disease of unknown origin. Idiopathic epilepsy is one of those frightening diseases that is very demonstrative, that is, the afflicted can shake violently, foam at the mouth, void body waste, and can die from the seizure. The conventional medical approach to idiopathic epilepsy is to administer central nervous depressants such as phenytoin, and phenobarbital on a daily basis for the remainder of the patient's life. These drugs are designed to minimize or prevent the onset of seizures without the knowledge of the cause of the disease. It has been established that phenytoin, in time, can cause liver damage. Now the seizures are under control, the animal develops a degenerative liver condition. As a practitioner, I have been this route many times and decided to deviate from this "merry-go-round." I posed the question, "what if this idiopathic epilepsy, is a manifestation of hypersensitivity", an allergy? Allergies can affect other parts of the body such as eyes, ears, respiratory and digestive systems, and most often the skin. Since I had previously treated skin related allergies with diets and nutritional supplementation, why not attempt to apply the skin allergy therapy to a central nervous allergy. The skin allergy nutritional protocol was successful. This four year old Australian Shepherd female was having ten gran mal seizures daily, four years later she remains seizure free. I later learned through, literature research, that the Harvard Medical School had made the same observation in four children with idiopathic epilepsy, allergy related. An even more significant reports by Dr. J.R. Collins, veterinarian, has observed allergy related epilepsy in canines.

Oxfordshire Epilepsy Network - Homepage Epilepsy is the UK's most common serious neurological condition. One in one hundred children and one in two hundred adults have epilepsy. The Oxford and District epilepsy support group had for a number of years offered support and information to those affected by epilepsy. Now with a new name, Oxfordshire Epilepsy Network, we are committed to building on the firm foundation set down by our past chairman Martin Lake. Support will continue to be offered through individual or group contact with representatives of the network, and with others in the community, who, often with the benefit of personal experience, are able to listen with empathy and to feed back ideas for building a new and positive way of living with epilepsy. At both regional and national level, action is being taken to dispel the myths that for some are still the misinformed reality of epilepsy . Through the new epilepsy in education initiative - the mobile information stand - the new telephone support and information line - and the group seminar programme, we have substantially improved our ability to deliver up to date information, to the public, to other community support organisations, to educators, and to employers. Our important link with the National Society for Epilepsy will this year become a vital part of our service, providing public relations and fund-raising support, as well as up to the minute information on medical developments in the treatment of Epilepsy.

Job Accommodation Network
By Suzanne R. Gosden, MA Preface Introduction: Terminology This terminology is taken in part or in whole from the Epilepsy Foundation at and the National Society for Epilepsy Generalized tonic clonic seizures, also called grand mal seizures , look like a sudden cry or fall; the individual may lose consciousness. The individual will exhibit rigidity, followed by muscle jerks, shallow or temporarily suspended breathing, bluish skin, and possible loss of bladder control. This seizure may last a couple of minutes. The individual may experience some confusion and/or fatigue, followed by a return to full consciousness. Generalized absence seizures or petit mal seizures look like a blank stare, beginning and ending abruptly, lasting only a few seconds. Other behaviors exhibited may include rapid blinking or some chewing movements of the mouth.

The Regional Epilepsy Center Innovative and Renowned Because the treatment of epilepsy is a rapidly evolving area in modern medicine, the nation's leading epilepsy centers also have active programs for clinical and basic scientific research and for training physicians as future specialists in neurology, neurosurgery and epilepsy. Epilepsy is not a disease, but a condition with many different causes, and therefore requires highly individualized treatment. Break throughs in treatment ultimately depend on research into the nature of these underlying disorders. The UW School of Medicine is internationally recognized for developing new, innovative treatments for epilepsy and other brain diseases. Its medical scientists have developed new insights into how antiepileptic medications work, and have discovered promising new drugs. Its centers and clinics participate in numerous trials of new seizure medications. The Regional Epilepsy Center was one of the first U.S. sites to perform brain surgery on a regular basis to treat patients with seizure disorders that were unresponsive to medications, and its neurosurgeons are among the most experienced in the world in these procedures. Our neuroradiologists are developing new methods of brain imaging to localize seizures and determine their cause, as well as investigating the effects of seizures on brain function. In addition to clinical care and research, the Regional Epilepsy Center carries out extensive teaching and training programs, including post-residency training in the medical and surgical treatment of epilepsy, as well as conducts symposia, lectures and courses for physicians from other institutions. Basic research into the underlying neurobiological causes of epilepsy, and investigations into the mechanisms whereby medications and other treatments act to prevent seizures, has been an essential part of epilepsy research from the founding of the Regional Epilepsy Center. Research initiatives into the developmental neurobiology, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, genetics, and molecular biology of epilepsy are ongoing.

Epilepsy and Seizures
Dr Lori Feldman, DVM
Henry Feldman, MA EMT-M, NREMT-B
Although much remains to be learned about the causes and treatment of seizures, the following is a guide for the layman for understanding and managing seizures and epilepsy. Epilepsy is simply a condition where the patient experiences recurrent seizures. This article will apply both to humans as well as animals, with the understanding that some of the treatments may only apply to one or the other. Seizures are both mysterious and frightening, and can range from the mildly annoying to life threatening in severity. Seizures were often referred to historically as convulsions or fits. Seizures are classified on several dimensions, including the amount of the body they affect, the cause and the duration.
Seizures can be broken down into 3 basic classes (there are many more, but in a big-picture sense) by how much of the body is affected:
Grand Mal
A Grand Mal or Tonic-Clonic seizure involves the complete body in a convulsion
Petit Mal
A Petit Mal or Focal seizure involves the convulsion of a part of the body
An Absence seizure is one in which the patient becomes unresponsive, often with little or no memory of the occurrence. The patient appears to be day-dreaming, but is non-rousable. (This is extremely rare in animals, and very hard to detect)
