Alternate Name/s:

  • Provoked seizures
  • Seizure disorder

 

Overview:

  • Seizures are abnormal movements and behaviors that are due to some unusual electrical activity in the brain.
  • Seizures are a symptom of epilepsy but not everyone who has seizures has epilepsy. There are different kinds of seizures that include non-epileptic seizures, provoked seizures and seizure disorder.
  • Non-epileptic seizures are not associated with abnormal brain activity but could be because of psychological issues and stress.
  • This type of seizure can be treated with psychiatric work. Provoked seizures are seizures that occur because of a trauma, low blood sugar, low sodium, alcohol or drug abuse or a high fever.
  • Seizures that are fever related can occur in children from infancy to age six.

Seizure disorders are a condition where the seizures may be a symptom.
