What is Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a condition of recurrent unprovoked seizures. A seizure is an abnormal, uncontrolled electrical discharge in the brain. While an isolated seizure may occur from extreme stresses such as high fever or low blood sugar, epilepsy means a seizure disorder where there is a disturbance in the electrical system of the brain leading to seizures in the absence of these extreme stresses.
