Seizure Disorder or Epilepsy

There are more than 40 different types of seizure disorders, although most people recognize the term epilepsy to describe what happens when a person is suffering through a seizure episode. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that occurs when there is an excessive surge of electrical activity in the brain. The severity of the seizure depends upon which parts of the brain are involved. The seizures are not a result of anything the person is doing.

Sometimes seizures are the result of head trauma, stroke, infection, tumors or other causes. Certain genetic disorders can also cause seizures, according to NYU Langone School of Medicine.

Epilepsy and seizure disorders are frightening and frustrating. The unexpected nature and violence of the seizure can make it impossible for a person to perform the material tasks and duties of their occupation. The medication that stops the seizures could also have an impact on the person’s ability to perform their job.
