Caring for a child with epilepsy

0 30

An epilepsy diagnosis for one’s child is enough reason for a parent to be overwhelmed with fear of the unknown. However, suffering from epilepsy is not a death sentence as with proper management, a child can still go on to have a full life.
Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder that is often marked by recurrent, unprovoked seizures. In many occurrences, the seizures in epilepsy may be related to a brain injury or are hereditary, but often the cause is completely unknown.
