Epilepsy Awareness

Some common triggers include:

  • Brain tumor
  • Stroke
  • Central nervous system infection
  • Viral Meningitis
  • Severe head injury or brain injury
  • Low oxygen during birth

But, in up to 70% of cases in people with epilepsy, no direct cause could be identified.

Having occasional seizures and having epilepsy are two different things. Although you have seizures with epilepsy, having seizures doesn't always mean you have epilepsy.

These causes are typically not the direct cause of epilepsy, they are unknown.
