• Epilepsy is a brain disorder
• It leads to repeated seizures and convulsions

Symptoms to look for:
• Stiffening of muscles
• Mild or vigorous shaking of arms and legs
• Patient appears to be staring in some direction
• Accidental urination
• Unconsciousness
• Patient may cry or make noise
• Vomiting
• Drooling

• The brain sends electrical impulses which control muscle movements

• This leads to stiffening of the muscles which causes jerking reactions
• The seizure stops when the brain stops sending these impulses
