Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that leads to recurrent, unprovoked seizures. Symptoms include – but are not limited to – the following: blackouts, muscle rigidity, jerking movements, loss of muscle, sporadic jolting, unusual sensations and automatisms. Epilepsy treatments include medication and surgery. Other treatment options (such as a ketogenic diet, acupuncture, relaxation therapies, and biofeedback) should always be used in concurrence with conventional medicine.
