Difference Between Epilepsy And Seizures

There is a clear difference between epilepsy and seizures. Even though these two terms are related and talk about the same situation, they have completely different meanings. Epilepsy is a neurological condition in which an individual has at least two unprovoked seizures. Unprovoked seizures are those types of seizures that do not have a clear cause for the seizure to occur.

Seizures are a brief, excessive discharge of brain electrical activity that alters the way a person feels, thinks, or behaves. Having a single seizure does not constitute that an individual has epilepsy. Everyone is born with a high threshold to seizures. Depending on the circumstances, someone will have a seizure at some point in their lifetime.

Tonight at 8:00 pm was supposed to be the broadcast for my Epilepsy Awareness Month Chat and Discussion. Unfortunately, my camera wasn’t working and I had to cancel at the last minute. I didn’t want to do it but it had to happen. I was excited to discuss the topics with everyone that I had compiled together. I will be searching for new equipment in the meantime and testing it out. Hopefully, this can begin by next year.
