Take the Poll: How Often Do You Have Seizures?

Posted on August 05, 2021
Article written by

When someone experiences more than one seizure that can’t be attributed to another cause (such as low blood sugar or alcohol withdrawal), doctors may diagnose epilepsy. While seizures are the common thread linking people with epilepsy to one another, the type and frequency of seizures that they experience can be vastly different. Consider taking the following poll to share how often you experience seizures.
