Epilepsy, or seizure disorders, covers a wide range of unpredictable seizures and related health problems. Epilepsy is a spectrum condition with severity of seizures and control over the condition varying between patients. Epilepsy may be caused by a brain-injury or by heredity, but most cases have no known cause. To be diagnosed, one needs to experience at least two seizures with no known provocation[1].
