Epilepsy is a neurological condition which affects the nervous system. Epilepsy is also known as a seizure disorder. It is usually diagnosed after a person has had at least two seizures that were not caused by some known medical condition.
Over two million people in the United States have epilepsy, and 1 in 26 will develop epilepsy at some point in their lifetime.
One third of people with epilepsy who live with uncontrollable seizures because no available treatment works for them, and six of ten people with epilepsy do not know why.
