Epilepsy & FNS
What Is Epilepsy?
The term epilepsy describes a spectrum of neurological disorders causing seizures. During a seizure the normal pattern of neuronal activity in the brain is suddenly disturbed, producing symptoms ranging from strange sensations, emotions, and behavior to convulsions, muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness.
What Are Functional Neurological Symptoms?
Functional neurological symptoms (a wide spectrum of sensory and motor symptoms, such as functional movement disorders and tremors, psychogenic non-epileptic seizures, visual symptoms, touch sensitivity, or paralysis) are behavioral events that resemble neurological symptoms. Functional neurological symptoms are very real and are often very limiting. Functional neurological symptoms often caused by overwhelming emotional distress and can be accompanied by symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and/or anger.
