What Causes Seizures?

Seizures are caused by a malfunction in the brain. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) will occasionally cause the onset of seizures similar to those of epileptics, who are born with the problem. Sometimes, the first indications of the onset of a seizure disorder are staring spells, where the person appears to temporarily zone out. These episodes can actually be focal point seizures, which can later develop into grand mal seizures. Because focal point seizures are difficult to recognize, family members should be on the lookout for this type of behavior and, if it occurs, make sure that the person's doctor is made aware of the development.

Additionally, seizures can occur due to electric shock from defective equipment or even medical malpractice during child birth. Seizures may develop weeks, months, or even years after the initial incident or accident.

What are the Symptoms of Seizures?

The following are common symptoms of seizures:

  • Clenching of teeth
  • Rapid, fluttering eye movements
  • Sudden mood changes
  • Muscle spasms
  • Blacking out and confusion

How Seizures Can Affect a Victim's Life

The onset of seizures can have serious consequences on a victim's life. If you have a grand mal seizure, your doctor is required to report that fact to the Department of Motor Vehicles, and it is likely that your license will be suspended—at least until the seizures are controlled with medication. However, seizure medications can have adverse effects too, especially for women who are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant.
