Signs And Symptoms You Have Epilepsy Condition

Seizures are the most common symptom of epilepsy. Seizures come in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on which part of the brain is affected.

People with epilepsy might have any form of seizure, but the majority of them have a predictable pattern of symptoms.

Seizures can happen at any time of day or night.

Doctors divide seizures into categories based on how much of the brain is affected. There are a few:

-Only a tiny region of the brain is affected in partial (or focal) seizures.

-Seizures that impact most or all of the brain are known as generalised seizures.

Unclassified seizures are seizures that do not fit into any of these categories.

Partial seizures

Partial seizures can be divided into two categories.

Simple partial seizures

Simple partial seizures are those in which you are fully conscious the entire time.

A simple partial seizure can cause the following symptoms:

-a peculiar feeling in your stomach that is difficult to define a "raising" feeling in your stomach - sometimes compared to the sensation in your stomach when riding a fairground ride an overwhelming feeling that events have happened before (déjà vu)

--a tingling sensation, or "pins and needles," in your arms and legs as a result of an unfamiliar scent or taste

stiffness or twitching of a part of the body, such as an arm or hand, caused by a sudden acute emotion of dread or delight

These seizures are also referred to as "warnings" or "auras" since they can signal the onset of another form of seizure. This can give you enough time to notify others and make sure you're in a secure location.

Complex partial seizures

When you have a complex partial seizure, you lose your feeling of awareness and are unable to recall what happened after the seizure has passed.

A complex partial seizure is characterized by seemingly unusual and random body behavior, such as:

-you're licking your lips

-rubbing your hands together and creating strange noises

-picking at garments, fidgeting with items, adopting an odd posture while chewing or swallowing

You will be unable to reply to others and will have no recall of the event if you have a complicated partial seizure.
