Epilepsy is the biggest health secret in the world. 1% of the British population suffers from epilepsy and 4% will develop it in their lifetime. That is a huge number of people, and means that if you know 16 people, 1 person probably has epilepsy – whether they told you or not. Every day 87 people are diagnosed with it and yet we know so little about the condition, and many people with epilepsy feel embarrassed to share it with friends, family or colleagues.
Normal brain function involves chemical messengers that cause cells to communicate with each other via electrical signals. Epilepsy is a condition where the brain experiences abnormal bursts of electrical impulses. The result of this varies. It can mean a full body fit with convulsions, lack of awareness or entering a trance-like state. Seizures can last seconds or minutes.
