This web page is being updated.
In these web pages, we have looked at the most common types of seizure and the areas of the brain where they happen. It is worth remembering that everybody’s seizures are individual to them. Even if your seizures appear to be similar to someone else’s, it doesn’t mean that they have the same cause or should be medically treated in the same way.
If you need more information about your epilepsy, speak with your epilepsy specialist, epilepsy specialist nurse or family doctor.
