Seizure disorder and epilepsy, what is the difference? Epilepsy

I had a bad wreck almost four years ago now and for the longest time the dr.s kept calling my seizures, actually the diagnosis was, seizure disorder. Now after.

Could someone please help me understand this? =D.

I will make a comment here. HI.

It gets really confusing though at those visits as they use alot of technical terms when discussing everything.

I think some doctors put it in that perspective till they find the cause.

As far as the public avoiding it, it is sad, however epilepsy is one of the most stigmatized disorders and one of the least underfunded for research.

I have had 3 seizures in my 57 years of life; one when I was an infant and had a fever,, one when I was 12 and had a fever of 104, and one when I was 22- last semester of my senior year in college, taking finals- stopped taking my medication, wasn't sleeping or eating.

l me you sympathize but don't you dare l me you UNDERSTAND! There is no difference between a seizure disorder and Epilepsy, it's the same thing.

Seizures, Convulsions, and Epilepsy

American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) discusses seizures, convulsions, and epilepsy.

These occur mainly in young children and may be so subtle that they aren’t noticed until they begin affecting schoolwork. Convulsions occur in about 5 out of every 100 people at some time during childhood. By contrast, “absence” seizures (previously called “petit mal” seizures) are momentary episodes with a vacant stare or a brief (one- or two-second) lapse of attention.

If your child is having a convulsion, protect her from injuring herself by laying her on her side with her hips higher than her head, so she will not choke if she vomits.

Strokes vs Seizures

Strokes and seizures. Both can be very disturbing, but do they have anything else in common? People sometimes confuse strokes and seizures, but they are two.
