No one knows the precise cause of the epilepsy Variant, or variant, but it is thought to become more common as you get older
This page tells you the details of the epilepsy. For each condition, we’ll include a video about the condition, together with an explanation of its symptoms. One condition is the epileptic period and the others are the epileptic period with ombres (rash) and striatal (stroke). Even though the condition is sometimes called the mania phase, many people have more common variants of the epilepsy. Why it is different to epilepsy Does epilepsy really cause it? As your body becomes weaker you tend to be more susceptible to seizures. After the two sets of cortical neurons which make up the basal ganglia region of the brain are deactivated, a mechanism called dysfunctions of the stroma organises the genes to produce signals. You will feel both the strong and mild light sensations. Are there any other symptoms? The sensory side effects are often put down to changes in your central vision and the balance component of the spectrum is often absent as the stroma doesn’t make it through. Although they can be related to the epilepsy, many of the symptoms of a pseudo epileptic are related to drugs and lifestyle. When was it first known? The oldest known recorded case of epilepsy is by Elizabeth Cooke, an American, who had an epilepsy type called the epilepsy clap. Scientists believe around 500 years ago it was used in psychiatry to determine the need for psychoactive treatments and patients would attend a mental institution. From there the scale of the epilepsy spread worldwide, through conditions ranging from obsessive compulsive disorder to Alzheimer’s disease. The first report of epilepsy as a single diagnosis was made in America around 1925. Does anyone get more than one type? There have been cases of a potentially multiple disorder, although there has not been any clear evidence. About 1% of the population have seizures where they experience uncontrollable symptoms that can vary from heavy snoring to fits. in more than 1,300 patients diagnosed with epilepsy in the UK between 1995 and 2002, 1.8% were given a stroke and 4.7% had a seizure with ombres. If I already have the epilepsy, can this be confused with a different condition? Yes, but here it’s more likely to be a variant, ie the epilepsy with the symptoms which vary between people. That’s because epilepsy with ombres, striatal and epileptic periods, among others, are thought to affect about 25% of people. Are there any techniques which can help during this time? On the rare occasion there will be seizures or surgery or both, you can of course learn ways to cope, but many people are still living with these distressing symptoms of epilepsy. There are some treatments for other conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, but with no known cure for epilepsy you are lucky to live with it. You are like the rest of us and are anxious and worried for others.
