Epilepsy: Symptoms and causes

Epilepsy is a disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS) and causes episodes, or seizures, that occur when there is an too much electrical activity in the brain.

This extra amount of electrical activity may cause a person to lose consciousness and move abnormally, also known as a seizure. There are multiple different types of seizures and each person is affected by them differently. If a person suffers from epilepsy, they will experience seizure regularly.

The cause of idiopathic epilepsy is unknown and this affects one in every 1o people. Symptomatic epilepsy occurs when there has been some type of brain damage, meningitis, birth damage, or possibly a brain tumor.

Recently, the use of the epilepsy medication Depakote has been tied to the increased risk of birth defects. Contact the Depakote lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187 and discussing your legal options.
