Epilepsy is a seizure disorder; the severity of the condition can vary from patient to patient. A seizure occurs in a patient when the body experiences an abnormal electrical storm in the brain.

It manifests outwardly in a number of different ways including small eye flickers on the mild end to full body convulsions on the more severe end.
