@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , There might be 30 or 40 different types of seizures. Epilepsy is divided into 2 kinds, Focalized seizures effect only one area of the brain but Generalized seizures effect all of the brain. At www.epilepsy.com you can click on the box in the top right corner & then click where it says something about Understanding Epilepsy & then it lists several different things you can read about concerning the different types. Also, here is a link about the different types also: https://www.myepilepsyteam.com/resources/seizur... . Your friend in Texas, Becky

They changed the terms on us a few years ago. To have more specific categories I think. We have the same epilepsy they just changed the name and forgot to send a memo
