Maybe you know someone who has it. Maybe you've never heard of it before. Either way, Epilepsy affects men and women of all ages across the United States. It is the 4th most common neurological problem in the globe. The only things more common are migranes, strokes, and Alzheimer's disease.

According to the Oxford Dictionary, eplilepsy is defined as, "a neurological disorder marked by sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness, or convulsions, associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain."

Epilepsy is a seizure disorder. It is not a psychological disorder nor a disease and it is not contagious.
