Sometimes a seizure lasts for a split second, second, two, three ... You do not even understand what happened to him, because he keeps on talking about the same thing, about which spoke. There are sensory seizures when the patient feels something: the smell suddenly occurs varies auditory, visual perception.
Sometimes an attack occurs in the form of enhancedpalpitations - no reason quickens the pulse, etc. Therefore, such patients often fall out of the field of view of a specialist, long treated by other doctors. This leads to the fact that sooner or later they can receive all types of known convulsive seizures. The disease, which began with small symptoms, acquires new, more complicated.
In most cases, seizures occurspontaneously, but there are still so-called reflex epilepsy, which are associated with certain sensory stimuli: gustatory, olfactory, auditory, visual, tactile.

Such a patient should not look at the intermittent flashing light, to visit discotheques with soundlights, he should give up the TV with a quick flashing of the frame and computer games.

Therapy is appointed for a long time, it could be a few years, decades, in some cases - on lifelong treatment.
Today it is possible to qualitatively surveyed - with the help of computer tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and other imaging studies of the brain.
