Epilepsy can begin at any age. However, you are more likely to develop epilepsy when you are young or in later life. We have written this information for you, if you have developed epilepsy in later life.
Epilepsy Action would like to thank Professor Raymond Tallis, Visiting Professor at St George's Hospital Medical School, University of London and Jan Bagshaw, Epilepsy Specialist Nurse, Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Community NHS.
