What Is a Seizure?

An estimated three million people suffer from seizures each year in the United States. A seizure occurs when there is a sudden change in the brain’s normal electrical activity. Seizures can be hereditary, the result of a birth defect or a developmental disorder, or caused by head trauma. Since there are a variety of types of seizures and the brain’s disruption of activity can vary, symptoms may change with each seizure and each seizure type. However, there are some common symptoms of seizures that should signal an issue with normal brain function. These symptoms can include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Uncontrollable jerking of the arms and legs
  • A staring spell
  • Psychic symptoms that trigger memories in the brain causing feelings of anxiety, fear, or other emotions
  • Rapid blinking of twitching in the face
  • Momentary memory loss
  • Dizziness
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Stiffening of the body
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control

Individuals suffering from these symptoms should consult a medical professional, as a diagnosis may require brain imagining, such as a CT scan or an MRI. When an individual experiences a seizure more than twice a year, they may be diagnosed as epileptic. Seeking medical attention is also prudent, as seizures can sometimes be controlled with medications or other treatments.
