Frequently asked questions

Epilepsy is a common condition that affects the brain and causes frequent seizures.

Seizures are bursts of electrical activity in the brain that temporarily affect how it works. They can cause a wide range of symptoms.

It’s often lifelong, but can sometimes get slowly better over time.

Seizures can affect people in different ways, depending on which part of the brain is involved.

Possible symptoms include:

uncontrollable jerking and shaking, called a “fit”
losing awareness and staring blankly into space
becoming stiff
strange sensations, such as a “rising” feeling in the tummy, unusual smells or tastes, and a tingling feeling in your arms or legs
Sometimes you might pass out and not remember what happened.

All our care and support staff complete the nationally recognised care certificate. Specific training is taught by our training partner Training Now and healthcare professionals.

The specialist may suggest having a test to check your brain activity called an electroencephalogram (EEG), or a brain scan to look for any problem in your brain.

But if these tests do not show anything, it’s still possible you have epilepsy, and you may be diagnosed just based on your symptoms

Though epilepsy is often a lifelong condition, most people with the condition are able to lead normal lives if their seizures are well controlled and monitored.
Through the right treatment, preparation and support you will be able to take more control of your seizures.
