A seizure is the result of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. The severity, duration, and presentation of seizures may vary, which can make it difficult to distinguish seizures from other conditions without the help of a neurological specialist. Regardless of the severity, it can be extremely disconcerting to the person experiencing it and to those around them. Seizures that last longer than 2 minutes require immediate medical attention.
Most seizure disorders can be controlled with medication. It is important to schedule a neurological consultation to manage seizures as soon as possible.
