This edition: Epilepsy: Solving The Mystery
Epilepsy is a brain disorder that can range from mild to severe. It can even be life-threatening. Essentially, anything that can disturb the normal pattern of neuron activities in the brain can result in epilepsy. Having a seizure does not automatically determine one has epilepsy, but when two or more seizures occur epilepsy is often the cause. In this program we seek to explore how patients can work with their medical teams to manage this mysterious disorder. We hear about the treatments that can help patients get control of the disease - and the lifestyle factors that can help reduce the stress that often accompanies living with epilepsy.
