Seizure Types

There are different types of epileptic seizures and how these affect you can depend on which area of the brain is involved at the time of the seizure. You might find you only have one type of seizure or might be affected by more than one type. Seizures can involve having different sensations or movements you can't control, for some people they may lose consciousness but others are aware of what's happening around them.


Talk to your team for more information on the types of seizures that you have. In some cases, the seizures do not fit neatly into any one of these categories, and some people have seizures of different types. You can read about the different types at the links below:
