About Epilepsy

Epilepsy has many causes. Although in many cases a cause cannot be determined, epilepsy can be caused by injury, brain infection, stroke, tumor, family history of epilepsy, or other factors.

Because so many issues come into play, it's very important for you to keep track of when you have seizures and what factors may have led to them.

You may find that one treatment no longer works as well as it used to, perhaps because of pregnancy, insomnia, medications, or other issues. It is important to keep in touch with your doctor about your health.

Refer to the Epilepsy page on our Dartmouth-Hitchcock Healthwise® Health Encyclopedia website to learn more about this condition.
