Recurrent seizures interfering with your ability to work?
Get Disability for Epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a brain disorder that affects more than 2 million people in the U.S. It’s caused by sudden surges of electrical activity in the brain, which triggers recurrent, unprovoked seizures.
Epilepsy, or seizure disorder, can take on different forms and affect people in different ways. Some people stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure. Others may have convulsions or lose consciousness for several minutes.
Because seizures can occur without warning, people with epilepsy must be extremely careful when they are driving, cooking, swimming, or operating tools and heavy machinery. Many people, especially those who have multiple seizures each day, can no longer work.
