What is epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a common brain disorder which takes the form of recurring seizures. It is estimated that 10% of the population are at risk of experiencing a seizure during their lifetime and 3-4% will go on to be diagnosed with epilepsy. There are other seizures that are not epileptic – these result from health issues such as diabetes, fever and a range of other health conditions.
