A seizure is the physical findings or changes in behavior that occur after an episode of abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
The term "seizure" is often used interchangeably with "convulsion." Convulsions are when a person's body shakes rapidly and uncontrollably. During convulsions, the person's muscles contract and relax repeatedly. There are many different types of seizures. Some have mild symptoms and no body shaking.
There are different kinds. The one people seem most familiar with is the whole body has spasms and the patient is unaware usually. They can be incontinent at this time. After the seizure most people are very tired and sleep. There are also seizures that only encompass one part of the body or that make people blank out for a short time.
