It's no laughing matter having seizures. Epilepsy can be life threatening if not controlled. The public need to stop shying away from someone with Epilepsy. Knowledge is power. It's not contagious and nobody can catch seizures from you!
Tests used to diagnose epilepsy includes: An electroencephalogram (EEG) to measure the electrical activity of the brain. A spinal tap to collect spinal fluid for analysis. Imaging tests, like an MRI or CT scan, of the head. Ask questions at Consultations. Ask for the Tests and respectable timescales of return appointments.
